Spring Break is in Full Swing. If you have kiddos at home, I’m sure you’ve heard  that phrase as we parents, we hate to hear, “I’m bored”. Tomorrow is the First tuesday of the month,  and that means free admission to some great places! Here is a list of the museums and gardens that offer free admission. If you are looking for something to do, make sure to check it out.

Free and Fun? I say win, win!

 

Bubblefest at the Discovery Science Center

This past Friday, the kiddos and I spent a super fun afternoon at the Discovery Science Center. Spring Break is here and we have been trying to do something fun each day. Spring Break also means that Bubbefest is back at the Discovery Science Center. The Spring Break tradition is back and better than ever! Bubble artist Deni Yang, brings his unique show to Orange County. Bubblefest is a  show like no other. The bubble extravaganza features a bubble carousel, bubbles within bubbles, smoking bubbles, spinning bubbles, bouncing bubbles and bubbles in all shapes and sizes

The show also features a pretty cool festival area with water spheres, a bouncy play slide area, and other fun stuff! The kids had an absolute blast and my son just walked by, caught a glimpse of the post, and said “Mom, when can we go to Bubblefest again?”. He was one of the lucky kiddos that was chosen to be inside a bubble. I don’t think he will forget that anytime soon!

A visit to Bubblefest is not complete without some play time at the museum. The kiddos had a blast before and after the show. Our visit to the Cube and to Bubblefest will definitely go down as a highlight of our Spring Break!

Bubblefest tickets are $5 for members and $7 for non-members. A general admission ticket is required to attend the event. For additional info or to purchase tickets head here. Bubblefest will be at the Discovery Science Center until April 14th. You don’t want to miss it!

Disclosure: Discovery Science Center is a Daytrippingmom Sponsor.

Spring break revisited: Ideas that won’t break the bank!

 

I’ve come up with a simple itinerary of a fun filled week with places/events that are free or are almost free. I’ve posted about these fun places before but I thought I would mention them again since they are tried and true favorites! Plus all you need is a tank of gas, some parking and food and you are ready to roll! Have fun!
