What fun FREE family activities do you plan to take your kids to this summer?
Last week Baby H and I joined The MOMS and BAND-AID for a private concert from the popular Disney Playhouse TV show Imagination Movers at J&R Jr. Baby H had never seen the TV show prior to the event but knowing he is a huge fan of guitars and all things involving music and dancing I knew he would have a blast! Check out this fun video of all the kids singing and dancing to JUMP UP! at the Imagination Movers Rockin Dance Party:
After the Imagination Mover sang a handful of songs the kids were completely exhausted from dancing around! All the kids then got an opportunity for a photo-op with the band. Baby H was a bit scared so I had to sneak into his photo.
We then learned about the new iPad and iPhone BAND-AID® Magic Vision Starring Disney’s® the Muppets app. The muppets come alive on EVERY BAND-AID® BRAND ADHESIVE BANDAGE FEATURING THE MUPPETS BECOMES A STAGE! Point the app at any of the 6 large BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive bandages or boxes featuring The Muppets to create a magical portal that puts The Muppets in the palm of your hand. This app is designed to make Muppets fans of all ages forget about their boo-boos. Baby H had fun sticking BAND-AID’s all over (just like stickers) and being allowed to hold the iPad all by himself!
Thank you to The MOMS for inviting My Strange Family we had a great time at J&R Jr and are now huge fans of Imagination Movers!
