Long Island Children’s Museum's Sensory-Friendly Performances for Autism Awareness Month

It’s no secret that Long Island is a great place to raise kids. And one of my family’s favorite outings is to our sponsor, the Long Island Children’s Museum. Not only does it have plenty of educational and fun activities (my kids love the Bubbles area, ClimbIt and Communication Station, to name just a few), but the museum also plays host to many entertaining performances the entire family can enjoy. LICM prides itself on being a place where all kids can learn and play.

With that in mind, Long Island Children’s Museum is kicking off Autism Awareness Month with sensory-friendly performances of the Experiential Theater Company’s The Adventures of Perseus, with two evening shows on Wednesday, April 1 and Thursday, April 2 (World Autism Day) reserved exclusively for families with children on the autism spectrum or with other sensory sensitivities.

Last Minute Campgrounds for Family Camping with Kids near LA

Wouldn't it be great if you could go camping this weekend? Well guess what - you can!

Pitch that tent tomorrow at one of these SoCal campgrounds that accommodate last minute campers - and then break out the marshmallows. (And if your kids are new to camping, we've got some tips for breaking them in!)
