Wild West Day

Wild West Day

Do a little panning for gold, rope a steer, and ride in a U. S. Mail stage coach at the Arboretum‘s “Wild West Day” on May 6. Kids can learn how to write telegrams, play horse shoes, and watch a blacksmith. Christy Lewis of Trick Roper provides a roping demonstration, the Shadow Mountain Band plays […]

Scaling the Big Trucks

Scaling the Big Trucks

Do you remember being a 3½ foot 5-year-old? Besides playing with your friends, your toys, or the family dog, your days were about looking up. Looking up at your parents, your teacher, the tree branch you wanted to reach, even the dang sink! Dreaming of the time you’d no longer need the step-stool to wash […]

Kids in the Kitchen Summer Camp

Kids in the Kitchen Summer Camp

Chef Michelle Hohman has created a casual, simple, welcoming space at Urban Kitchen. She teaches pasta making classes, and classes about seafood and steak, mastering souffles, and even “skills for crafting meals.” And, not only for adults. With summer arriving shortly, if you have a young’un who has shown deftness in the kitchen—or perhaps does […]

Hunting in the Horseshoe Garden

Hunting in the Horseshoe Garden

Still undecided about where to Easter egg hunt? Consider having your little ones hunt for eggs in the Horseshoe Garden at the Langham Huntington. Every child receives his or her own basket and the Easter Bunny will be visiting to help kids search the grounds for treats and goodies. Children can enjoy, also, the Huntington’s “express train” […]

Intergalactic Gala, Messy Mayhem, Painted Ladies & an Egg Hunt

Intergalactic Gala, Messy Mayhem, Painted Ladies & an Egg Hunt

Get ready for a busy April. Kidspace has events which if our child wasn’t a young woman and a freshman in college right now, we’d be lining up.

Love Bug & Me Music

Love Bug & Me Music

We were checking in to see what was happening at the Southern California Children’s Museum on Los Robles just north of Colorado Boulevard. This location is now its permanent home after some time on South Lake Avenue—and though the folks are still in the process of completing all of the interactive exhibits, the doors are open. […]

Harry Potter Immersion

Harry Potter Immersion

Do you have kids or grandchildren who are Harry Potter fans? Perhaps you’re a fan too? We didn’t pick up any of J. K. Rowling’s books until the first movie was made. Subsequently, we devoured them. Finally, we shared them with our girl, first reading to her and then taking turns as she learned to read. […]

Cherished Memories

Cherished Memories

Being just “one of the kids” is paramount. To be unable to participate in school activities, from field trips and organized sports to attending the prom is humiliating for students and should be unacceptable in our society. Thankfully, people care. The Salvation Army Tabernacle Pasadena once again presents “Cherished Memories.” Students wishing to attend prom, […]

Expressing Feelings…Through Your Art

Expressing Feelings…Through Your Art

Pasadena’s nonprofit Light Bringer Project may be better know for producing the marvelously fun, crazy, and creative Doo Dah Parade or the incredibly successful and ever-growing Chalk Festival, but Light Bringer focuses a substantial amount of its time on the arts and children. LA Futures brings a group of students in to work with major creative […]

Aladdin, As Ballet

Aladdin, As Ballet

This event is not for a young’uns ooey gooey experience or working up a sweat or maneuvering with glue and paste, but we remember being young (8 or 9 years old?) when our grandparents took us to our first ballet, a performance of The Nutcracker at Rockefeller Center in New York City. We were hooked. […]
