Now that MindGear Labs is officially Huntsville STEAM Works parents will see more Fall classes & programs planned out by their new Education Director, Jennifer Johnson.
MindGear Labs is merging with the new Huntsville STEAM Works to offer even more camps, classes, and events for families who are crazy about all things STEM and STEAM!
With brand-new shows and a full menu of classes for kids, Fantasy Playhouse Children’s Theatre is starting their best season in Huntsville yet!
These unique workshops are designed to be fun, pairing expectant fathers with veteran dads to practice diaper changes and ways to soothe a crying baby. But we also cover more serious topics for new dads.
These DIY clinics are monthly on Saturday mornings. Home Depot and Lowe’s kid’s workshops are a great way to work in some quality family time, so we compared & contrasted the two events.
A local mom shares her experience with Colors Fine Arts Center, a music studio in Madison that offers baby, toddler and pre-school music classes along with piano, guitar, violin, voice, & woodwind instruction for all ages.
A local mom reviews her little ninja’s class at Alexander’s Martial Arts. Spoiler alert: it was more Mr. Miyagi than Cobra Kai.
It’s good to be around those who are curious and understand. That, more than nearly anything else, is the appeal of Full Spectrum Science at Sci-Quest on Wednesday afternoons from 3:30 – 4:30pm. Well, that’s the appeal for parents anyway. The appeal for kids is obvious: when soda erupts, it grabs everyone’s attention.
We had the pleasure of visiting Solomon’s Academy recently, and really enjoyed our class. Solomon’s Academy is a classroom alternative providing Saturday classes, homeschool classes, and Summer camps. I believe this is a valuable local resource for home and public schoolers alike! Lisa Culbertson, entrepreneur of Solomon’s Academy, LLC, has more than 15 years of […]
Just a few short months ago, I was celebrating my daughter’s 10th birthday, reminiscing about all of her childhood milestones, and marveling at what a wonderful young lady she’s becoming. I was not, however, thinking about the fact that I am now the mother of a pre-pubescent little girl. Sigh. Not unlike many parents, this […]
Got a budding artist, inventor, or engineer in your house? Well, if you’re not familiar with MindGear Labs, now’s the time to get acquainted. It’s THE place for innovators of all ages. And their Big Hands, Little Hands program provides the perfect opportunity for parents and kids to work together on a project and maybe […]
Fantasy Playhouse Children’s Theater and Academy was born in someone’s living room in 1961. At the time there was no theater productions for children in town, and a group of concerned citizens decided to take action. Their first show was “The Pied Piper of Hamlin” over fifty years ago. For anyone who has ever experienced […]
We have lived in the area for over a year now, but it wasn’t until last week that we finally made our way to the Huntsville Botanical Gardens. If I could go back in time I would, instead we bought a yearly pass and have visited four times since. We have found peace in the […]
Ah, Saturday mornings. What were you like before kids? Lazily laying around, considering what we might do, but didn’t have to, and otherwise taking the day as it came. Now, we try to squeeze as much sleep into our eyelids before the eventual pounce, please, and plans for the day are made and okayed. For […]
I have always loved ballet. I was never one of the little girls that took lessons when I was little. Instead, I grew to appreciate ballet as an art form through the annual performance of The Nutcracker my mother took me to every year. I would watch the beautiful ballerinas gracefully move across the stage and pick out […]
When we moved to Madison in 2009, my five-year-old son quickly made several neighborhood friends. My 18-month-old daughter was a different story. Being younger, she was not as independent and I began to look for activities for her. In my search, I came across The Little Gym. What is The Little Gym? From their website: […]
Local business owner Colleen Cassidy-Murch and Oscar Wilde must be kindred spirits. No other example of “life imitating art” could be more true for this artist-turned-entrepreneur. Armed with her sunny disposition and warm smile, Colleen owns and operates Picket Fence Studio, and hosts children’s creative art classes for parties and groups. She also specializes in […]
My daughter Caroline and I started attending Music Together in 2009 when she was about 6 months old. Mainly it was as a way for us to get out of the house and for me to be around other adults, considering that my husband worked late hours and traveled often. All of my other mommy […]
