If you’re looking for a kid-friendly, creative, unique event, look no further than Pretend City’s annual Kidstock!
The festival, which runs through Sunday, April 8, offers a variety of music and art-related experiences for the family, ranging from DIY face painting to painting a car!
My kids also enjoyed making their own crown wreaths, getting temporary tattoos with cute peace signs and hearts, and even hula-hooping!
Throughout the day, various musical performers and artists perform on the main stage, too. We were lucky enough to watch the beautiful colors and smiles of Las Estrellas as they performed some festive dances.
We can’t wait for the next Pretend City event!
Since we have annual passes at Legoland, sometimes we just go for a few hours at a time. And sometimes, we don’t even go on any rides. One of our favorite things to do is check out the shows, especially these two: Character Dance Party at Fun Town Stage, and LEGO Friends to the Rescue at the Friends Forever Stage.
The Character Dance Party offers a fun mix of upbeat, dance-worthy songs that everyone in the family can sing and dance along to. Plus, you can take pictures with Max and Buddy after the show!
If you have a LEGO Friends fan, then head straight to the Friends Forever Stage! My daughter is obsessed with this show. The girls sing some of their favorite tunes, plus the kids get to follow some simple choreography as “dancers” in the show.
Grab a soft serve ice cream or crepe and get ready for a great show!
My friend over at A Lovely State of Mind sent this one my way. Love it!
Welcome to toddlerhood
My son has recently become an official terrible two-er, which means tantrums and struggles for independence, mixed in with cuddles and sweet smiles. Sometimes all within a matter of moments. But I guess that’s toddlerhood! Anyways, if you’re in need of some tips on dealing with the whining and tantrums, you’ll want to read this piece. Plus, it’s funny, which is always a perk for an exhausted parent, right?!
