We know it's early and the weather is still feeling a little bit like summer -- but we just can't wait any longer! Our Halloween BYOB Happy Hour is officially on the books, and it will take place on Friday, October 25, from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm.

This will be a family friendly happy hour -- in other words, it will be all treats and no tricks! Your little ones can expect games, halloween-themed toys and storefronts, all festive and not scary! As always, you are invited to bring food and drink to enjoy while the kiddos play. Our friends at La Cabra and Bravissimo will continue to offer discounts on the day of the event to ticket holders!

This year, we have an extra special evening planned! Special visitors Ariel, Anna, and Spiderman, pictured below, from A Moment of Magic will be stopping by to greet your little ones, play, and take photographs! These lovely visitors are as excited as we are for this special event!

Best of all, a portion of all of our ticket sales from this event will go towards supporting this 501(c) (3) organization! You can learn more about their special visits to children in hospitals and at other social service organizations at their website.

You and your little monsters are welcome to wear your halloween costume to this happy hour -- of course, we will have our dress-up box out for your child's perusal as always.

We recommend reserving your ticket in advance here, since space will be limited! We can't wait to see you -- happy haunting!


Today's activity comes from our Dinosaur Explorer's Day in July, which you and your little ones will love recreating at home -- Prehistoric Sensory Bins!

Why sensory bins?

Sensory bins are a blast for your toddler -- not only will they get to enjoy different textures and feel new substances, they will enjoy hunting for hidden toys inside! (Not to mention, we all know toddlers love mess!) These bins are perfect for free play, and structured play, too!

Here's what you'll need:

--1 plastic gallon tub

--1 bag of rice

--paintbrushes, shovels, scoops, spoons, and any other utensils your kiddos enjoy

-- several plastic dinosaurs

--seashells, fossils, rocks, smooth stones, etc.

The next part is easy, and the kids will love to get involved, too! Dump all your supplies into the tub (use a shower curtain for mess indoors, or just take it outside).

Let the little ones play, dig, sort, and dump! They will have a blast making a mess, and you'll have an easy clean up!

For more structured play, try out these tasks:

"Find me something blue/green/red/..."

"Can you find 3 dinosaurs?"

"Use a paintbrush to dust this fossil!"

"Use a shovel to dig!"

"Can you give that dinosaur a name? What would you call it?"

"Do you think this dinosaur eats plants or meat? Why?"

You can even make a whole day of it! Try pairing your sensory bin activity with a dinosaur story like How Do Dinosaurs Count to Ten? by Jane Yolen, or Dinosnore! by John Bendall-Brunello.

Let us know in the comments below if you and your little ones enjoyed this activity!

(Safety Note: Always use adult supervision when playing with small toys. Be mindful of activities for children 3 and under regarding swallow risk.)
