2013 Holiday Activities in Las Vegas For Kids

By

The Holidays have come again and they really came fast this year!  If you have the time in your Holiday schedule, here are a few 2013 Holiday Activities in Las Vegas that may make this season memorable for you and your family: 1.  The Ethel M Cactus Gardens – My family and I just visited the Cactus Gardens last evening.  We love going to the Gardens, walking the chocolate factory tour and purchasing, what I believe is, the BEST hot chocolate ever!  This is a quick event but really worth it.  Plus admission is free for the whole group.  Their lights come on at 5pm until 10pm through New Years. It does get cold, so I suggest wearing warm coats and gloves.  Check out times and information here.     2.  The Bellagio Gardens – What does the Bellagio have in store for you this year?  Bring the family to the strip and see the beautiful botanical gardens.  Make sure you...

What to do on a hot summer Las Vegas day?

By

What to do on a hot summer day? May I suggest getting lost at the Discovery Children’s Museum. Las Vegas weather is not necessarily family friendly during the hot summer months.  We just recorded our hottest day ever in June, topping out at a miserable 117 degrees.  So how can we help stimulate the kids and allow them to burn off some energy, without spontaneously combusting? Check out the NEW Discovery Children’s Museum.  They offer 58,000 square feet of colorful space and 3 air conditioned floors of interactive exhibits. My kids always make a beeline to the Fantasy Festival on the first floor.  They can literally spend hours playing on the pirate ship and castle.  They dress up in costumes, walk the plank, claim the treasure, climb the castle stairs, all while defending the ship and making new friends.  There is a stage where creative minds put on plays, dances, or sing...

Las Vegas Spring Break Activities

By

Spring Break is upon us and for many, leaving town is not an option.  So what do you do if you are having a staycation?  Here are some Las Vegas Spring Break Activities to make this Spring Break a memorable event for your family. Have Your Nails & Toes Done. My daughters love to have their toes done, especially when you add little flower embellishments.  They were so excited to find the Paris to New York Nail Bar in their own backyard after watching this YouTube video below.  They can’t wait to have their Glitter Pedicures! Teen Facials.  Nothing makes you feel so grown up as your very own facial.  I had to search for sometime to find a place where my kids could get a mini facial and they love it.  The SkinBar in Henderson, NV offers facials for kids 10 and up. Park Tour.  A great way to spend a day in Vegas is by visiting three or four parks.  Have your kids plan some of...

Oobleck Goo Fun

By

Make Your Own Oobleck My daughter came home from Dr. Seuss day and told me that they didn’t get to make Oobleck at school because one of the kids in her class was acting up.  So, we decide to make our own.  She looked up the recipe and it is really simple: 1.  Water   2.  Cornstarch  3.  Food Coloring (optional) 4.  My daughter said they also use some glue as well (so we added some for good measure) Here is a link to the Oobleck Recipe we found online. We made this outside, which I highly recommend.  The stuff is so weird that it is quite fun to play in.  It seems watery, but if you put your hand in the substance and try to move quickly, it feels like you are in cement. When we were all done playing with our Oobleck, we put it in zip lock plastic bags so that the girls could keep it to play with in the future.  Then, we decided to clean up. Oobleck (or as we like to call it goo)...
