Kick Off the New Year at SeaLife & Legoland (+ Free Admission to Legoland Kansas City)

December 22, 2016 at 9:38 AM • Posted in Deals & Discounts for Kansas City Families, Family Events & ActivitiesComments Off on Kick Off the New Year at SeaLife & Legoland (+ Free Admission to Legoland Kansas City)

Hello, Kansas City! It’s hard to believe that we’re in the last couple of weeks of December, and that soon, we’ll kick off 2017. The new year brings us some great fun at SeaLife Kansas City and Legoland Discovery Center down at Crown Center. Our Mom Squad Ambassador, Darcy gives us the low down of what to expect in January (along with a promo code for 1 child free with 1 paid adult ticket). Check it out!

Kick Off the New Year at SeaLife Kansas City
& Legoland Discovery Center

 

Winter is here and keeping the kiddos busy can be tough. Luckily, Kansas City has many options for keeping your family entertained. One of the most popular and unique options is SEA LIFE Kansas City and LEGOLAND Discovery Center.

SEA LIFE has an exciting new addition, Moko, a Māori wrasse. These fish grow to be over 6 feet long and up to 400 pounds! Moko is only about 2 and a half feet long right now, but will continue to grow here in Kansas City. You can find Moko in the big sting ray tank. These fish are beautiful with intricate blue markings all over. An endangered species, Moko is here to raise awareness for the importance of caring for the ocean and coral reefs. I had the pleasure of interviewing an aquarist live on iFamilyKC’s Facebook page last week. We learned all sorts of fun things about Māori wrasses, like other names they go by, how Moko got his name, how their gender changes as they grow and that Moko loves to eat shrimp! SEA LIFE also has some new baby seahorses near Moko’s display that were fun to see.

LEGOLAND is another fun option. With areas to run around, stations for building with Legos and various rides to go on, you can easily fill an entire day with family fun. My kids love building their own Lego pizzas whenever we go. The 4D theater is a fun spot to enjoy a quick show and rest tired bodies before they find their next activity. If you buy your LEGOLAND tickets online, right now you can get 1 child in free with 1 paid adult! Just enter the promo code 1409. This offer is valid until January 31st, 2017, however the visit can be scheduled for a later date. This is an awesome deal and I hope you can take advantage of it at least once! This would also make a great stocking stuffer- what kid wouldn’t love a trip to LEGOLAND Discovery Center?

Experience Fall Fun at Worlds of Fun!

September 27, 2016 at 7:42 AM • Posted in Deals & Discounts for Kansas City Families, Family Events & Activities, Mom ResourcesComments Off on Experience Fall Fun at Worlds of Fun!

Good Morning, Kansas City! Worlds of Fun is a staple in the Kansas City, and has been offering family fun for decades. Our Mom Squad Ambassador, Erin, took the kiddos to check it out and shares some fun upcoming fall events–including FREE Pre-K Season Pass. Don’t miss out!

 

Experience Fall Fun at Worlds of Fun!

 

Experience Fall Fun at Worlds of Fun!

 

One of my favorite childhood memories is when my dad would load us up in the truck and we’d spend the day at Worlds of Fun! If you’re from KC, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know that Worlds of Fun is an amusement park with tons of cool rides and family fun! It keeps expanding every year to become even bigger and better! Somehow after all this time, the smells, sights and sounds of WOF have remained pretty much the same: funnel cakes, fresh blacktop, laughing and screaming voices! I’ve been going to WOF since I was about 5 and now I am so excited to create new memories with my own kids!

 

Experience Fall Fun at Worlds of Fun!

 

There are some really exciting things happening at WOF in the coming year! I wanted to share a few things that you may not know about!

 

  • First of all, WOF is offering a special FREE Pre-K season pass for the entire 2017 season for children 3-5 years old. This saves big $$$ because the regular season passes cost anywhere from $100-150! You can register online starting now.   You will need to show the child’s birth certificate when you come to the park to process the pass. If you process the pass between October 1st and October 30th, 2016, your child will receive one FREE visit in 2016! Find out more and register for the pass at https://www.worldsoffun.com/what-s-new/pre-k-pass

 

  • In my opinion season passes are definitely the way to go in 2017! For just $99, or 9 payments of $11 each with the EZ pay plan, the Gold season pass has so many benefits! Unlimited visits to Worlds and Oceans of Fun, FREE parking, FREE admission to Dinosaurs Alive exhibit, special dollar days with discounted food/games/merchandise throughout the season, bring a friend discount days, and early park access days. With the Gold season pass, you also will receive a free visit in 2016 so you can enjoy Halloween Haunt or The Great Pumpkin Fest!

 

  • Starting September 17th, 2016, you can get your scare on at Halloween Haunt or during the day kiddos under 14 can enjoy tons of fun activities at The Great Pumpkin Fest. https://www.worldsoffun.com/the-great-pumpkin-fest/things-to-do

 

  • Two new rides are opening in 2017 as well. Mustang Runner and Falcon’s Flight. They look awesome and I can’t wait to try them out! Check them out at https://www.worldsoffun.com/what-s-new/new-in-2017

 

  • Another reason I was personally sold on buying season passes, especially this year, is because for the first time in WOF history, starting in 2017, the park will be open until December! They are starting something called Winterfest with all kinds of winter activities: light displays, ice skating, holiday characters, and live entertainment. We’ll have to stay tuned to see what rides are available to ride in the colder temps!

How to Have Fun at the Circus Without Breaking the Bank

September 17, 2016 at 11:12 PM • Posted in Deals & Discounts for Kansas City Families, Family Events & ActivitiesComments Off on How to Have Fun at the Circus Without Breaking the Bank

It seems like a lot of family activities anymore can cost quite a bit of money. The circus definitely being one of them. Our Mom Squad Ambassador, Becky, however, has some fantastic tips to have a great time at the circus without emptying your wallet. Check it out!

 

How to Have Fun at the Circus Without Breaking the Bank

How to Have Fun at the Circus Without Breaking the Bank

The circus. $20 to get in, $100 to get out. Well, that’s what I USED to think, but when I was given passes to see the opening night of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus Xtreme in KC this week, I felt the need to prove to myself and my loyal readers (hi, mom) that a trip to the circus can be just as fun whether you decide to splurge while you’re there or not.

 

My neighbor, her six-year-old daughter and my six-year-old daughter were kind enough to be participants in my social experiment and the test results are in: You really can enjoy a great show, spoil your kids, leave happy without any FOMO AND keep your wallet in your purse the entire time. Here’s how I did it:

 

Find a free parking spot — It’s against my religion to pay for parking in Kansas City so I rarely do. Save $10 and get some exercise with the kids by avoiding the parking garages and finding a free spot on the street (after 6PM).

 

Wear tennis shoes — Admittedly, parking for free can create a bit of a hike (we found one about 7 blocks away from the Sprint Center) but our first graders had no problem at all coming or going. I don’t think we would have been as successful with their attitudes had they not been wearing comfortable walking shoes.

 

Eat before you go — There were plenty of tasty options if you want to eat at the show—I saw a chili dog the length of my forearm—but if you’re looking to save money, eat before you go. We stopped at Pie Five and got pizzas, drinks and brownies for a fraction of what dinner for four would have cost us during the show. Bonus: Going out to eat was also a fun way to extend our special night on the front end.

 

Pack snacks – I thought we’d be bombarded by a guy yelling “Cotton Candy! Popcorn! Snow Cones!” up and down our aisle throughout the show (I was pleasantly surprised that the circus isn’t pushy with their concessions at all) so my defensive mechanism was to pack my own circus-themed treats for the kids (Fruit Roll-Ups, Tootsie Pops and animal crackers). As luck would have it, our girls were so full from our pizza stop, they never once asked for any food at the circus. (Thanks Eat-Before-You-Go rule!) I’m guessing lightening won’t strike twice, so pack some fun snacks for your crew.

 

Don’t spend more on a bottled water than I do on a bottle of wine — Unfortunately you can’t take liquids into the Sprint Center, but there are water fountains inside and the show’s 15-minute intermission allows plenty of time to stretch your legs to find one. Bonus: Not having drinks at the seats means you’re less likely to have to take your kids to the bathroom during the middle of the show.

 

Bring your own souvenirs — Cheap mom alert here, but I’m not ashamed. The circus sells a lot of fun flashy wands and toys that light up and look really cool in the dark audience during the show. BUT THEY ARE $25. If you have multiple kids that’s a serious chunk of change for toys they’ll LOVE having that night but won’t cherish nearly as much once the night’s over. Head to the dollar store before the circus. You can outfit four kids with glow necklaces and their choice of flashing rings or color-changing bracelets for $5 TOTAL. You’re welcome.

 

The circus is in town September 16-18 at the Sprint Center. Ticket prices start at $22/person.
