This is for the local Yakima moms-

Have you heard about a super-fun show that’s coming to the Capital Theatre October 25th? The Magic School Bus – LIVE! will have 2 showings that day- at 10AM and again at Noon, and it’s only $5 per ticket- an amazingly affordable way to take the kids to a really great show. {See more details on the show here, and find a study guide to use along with the show too!}

Seatbelts everyone! The Magic School Bus celebrates its 25th Anniversary with an all-new musical adventure.

The Magic School Bus Live

More about the Show-

Ms. Frizzle’s students are putting on a play about global warming, and they need some cold, hard facts. The Friz and her reptilian sidekick, Liz, know just where to find them!

This is no ordinary field trip, as a hop on the Magic School Bus takes the class and the audience on a whirlwind tour. From the arctic to the equator, they see telltale signs of climate change and learn how conservation, recycling and alternative energy can make a difference.

Ms Frizzle and her class are up for the climate challenge. Are you?

The Magic School Bus – LIVE! is targeted towards kids from Preschool to 3rd Grade.. But since the show is only an hour long, it’s still totally appropriate for even younger kids- in fact, I plan to take Abby, who’s only 14 months. But I know she’ll just LOVE it!

Take the kids to the show- Get entered to win tickets for YOU too!

The Capital Steps

One Lucky Winner will get a Pair of Tickets to see the Capitol Steps!

“The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom (“Don’t quit your day job!”), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.”

You don’t want to miss this!

Everyone who orders tickets to The Magic School Bus show can get entered to win a great pair of tickets to see The Capitol Steps show on Friday, October 21st, at 7:30 PM. The winner will be chosen on October 14th, the Friday before the show, to make sure they have time to arrange for a baby sitter, and can enjoy a great “Date Night” out!

65 Fun Fall Ideas for Kids!

I love Fall…

I live in Central Washington State, and one of my very favorite things about living here is the weather. We have four distinct seasons- gorgeously rainy springs, incredibly hot summers, tons of snow in the winter, and the most beautiful fall leaves! I can’t imagine living somewhere that didn’t have that change of the seasons.

To celebrate the coming of fall, one of my favorite local publications has an article in this months issue with 64 Fun Fall Crafts to do as a family. They’re all really simple, and include great fall stuff like pinecones, leaves, turkeys and pumpkins! You’ll find snack recipes, crafts, games, and more.

I helped contribute to this article {you can see the credits at the bottom- Meagan Paullin, local mom and owner and creative director of Sunshine and Sippy Cups!} If you’re curious, these are the dates that are my ideas:

  • September 25th- Toddler Exploring Set.
  • October 11th- Creative Crayon Recycling.
  • October 20th- Fall Tree Arm Print.
  • October 26th- Make Your Own Fall Magnets.
  • November 9th- Yakima Apple Pie Snack Mix.
  • November 14th- Craft a Homework Helper.
  • November 15th- Chore Money Jar.
  • November 16th- Magnetic Locker Organizer.
  • November 19- Make your own Sidewalk Chalk.

Sound like fun?
