Show Recap: Ringling Bros Out of this World @HondaCenter #ringlingbros

Disclosure: We attended a media preview. The circus is in town! We went to opening night of the new Ringling Bros Presents Out of This World at the Honda Center. We have gone the last few years, and they always change it up! They still have the Animal Open House (purchased ticket required for viewing) so be sure to arrive early to get a closer look of the animals in the show. I also like going early to avoid traffic, find closer parking, and for pictures with the performers or clowns. The arena has an ice floor this year so the circus clowns are walking around greeting guests. They also … READ MORE >>

Walking With Dinosaurs Arena Spectacular Downloadable Activity Sheets

On Mother’s Day this year, we took our boys to Discovery Science Center to meet a life-sized Baby T-Rex from Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular. While we waited for the presentation to begin, the kids enjoyed running around the Prehistoric Plaza located toward the back of the center where they explored fossil digs. At Dino Quest: Kids can go on a fun and educational scavenger hunt at Discovery Cube Orange County. Jere Lipps, Director of the John D. Cooper Archaeological and Paleontological Center, came out to introduce himself. We learned that there were not too many Orange County dinosaurs, but there were findings. We’re about to see a … READ MORE >>

Ringling Bros.: Painting with Circus Clowns and Pachyderms

We were invited to a private “Paint with a Pachyderm” event by Ringling Bros. this morning at Honda Center in Anaheim, CA. It was a lifetime opportunity, so of course we said, “Yes!” After we watched Mabel paint her masterpieces, our kids were able to create their own “elephant-inspired” artwork with their own easels, paint, canvases, and brushes. Ringling Bros. Clowns were also there to help. =) Check out Clown Rosie McQueen‘s Masterpieces Clown Zhang‘s Masterpiece Clown Chris painted a #selfie. Nice work, Chris. Thanks, Ringling Bros., for a fun morning. We also learned that circus elephant, Mabel, is an endangered Asian elephant and will be turning eight soon. She … READ MORE >>
