Well, my boys are absolutely chomping at the bit for sled time. If you didn’t check your school already, I mentioned schoolreport.org over at the Facebook page. It’s so much handier than waiting for the scroll on the T.V. and from the looks of things, it’s a site you’ll want to add to your favorites.
First, a quick thanks to Denise who wrote in to tell me that Superjump! in Algona has moved their open play time to the Supermall. I’ve updated the Bouncy House List to reflect that change.
This is a museum Monday, but instead of the usual overview, I’m going to give you a quick tip on how you can see more for free.
My friend Stefanie was inspired by my post about how to get a Play Pass from your local library and go to the Children’s Museum in Tacoma for Free. Clever mommy that she is, she wondered if the King County Library System might offer different museum passes.
Don’t live in King County? Not a problem. Thanks to reciprocal borrowing agreements, if you have a card from basically any other library, you can use the King County library, too! Double score!
Now, KCL checks out their passes differently than other libraries. Instead of checking out a physical pass, you register online for the museum you want to see and the date you want to go. You print out a confirmation which serves as your ticket, and it’s only valid that day. I haven’t tried this yet myself, but it seems super simple, and I think if folks are only virtually checking them out one day at a time, that you are more likely to find it available when you want to go.
My kiddos are seriously going to look for another mother if I don’t go outside with them now, but I will be back later with some of my favorite ideas for cold weather play. I’m also launching a mini series on home bound survival. Whether you find yourself stuck because of weather, a broken car, or a sick baby, I’ll give you some strategies to make it through!
If the holidays can’t get here fast enough for you, scroll one post down to see the handy list of T.V. specials I found. I’ve written a few on our calendar.
Suit up and get out there! I’ll see you back here at cocoa time!
