I am a true believer of the saying that families that play together stay together and that’s why we try to make a family vacation happen every year. Having outgrown our annual trip to Santa’s Village and Storyland, I was on the look out for a new family destination. All of a sudden it hit me like a ton of chocolate: We chose Hersheypark, and got chocolate wasted!

I think I have maybe posted one or two photos on Instragram, ever. I’m more of a Facebook gal. But when the New England Aquarium posted their Instagra m photo contest to Facebook to celebrate World Oceans Day, I couldn’t resist the topic: Submit a picture that exemplified how your family “lived blue.” I actually […]

Since Providence is such a cool place to hang with kids, we love sharing our favorite family-friendly things to do in the area on a regular basis. Although the recent New York Times article, “36 Hours in Providence, R.I” mentions many fab things to do and see in the city, it’s not tailored for families, prompting me to update my Kidoinfo post from 2007, “36 Hours in Providence (with Kids).”
I’ve a packed a lot into the weekend and I know in reality that children need naps, nourishment, and places to roam. Although you may only want a playground and a family friendly place to eat, I provide plenty of options depending on the weather, the age of your kids, and your sense of adventure. Have fun playing in Providence!
I created this list of 100 things to do with my kids in Rhode Island (and nearby area) before they grow up a few years ago. The fun stuff and the things I think are important for them (and me) to do. I like having a master list, knowing which ones are free organized by […]

We recently spent our April Vacation in Toronto attending the TIFF Kids International Film Festival.
TIFF Kids offers children and youth the opportunity to learn about cultural perspectives from around the world through the power of the moving image. More than just a day at the movies, TIFF Kids includes two public weekends for ages three and up and a two week long School Program for students in elementary schools. Featuring the best of Canadian and international cinema for children and youth, TIFF Kids offers a compelling selection of features and shorts on diverse subjects in a variety of genres and styles. It provides a rare opportunity to watch films that kids around the world are lining up to see and that in many cases may not be available again in Toronto.
Just wanted to let you know that Kidoinfo will be taking a break from posting this week. We are taking a road trip to the TIFF Kids International Film Festival — first time attending a festival other than our beloved Providence Children’s Film Festival. Part vacation (fueling our family’s film passion) and part work as we will be interviewing people in the industry and previewing films for the 2013 Providence Children’s Film Festival.
While we’re gone, check out…
The Wellfleet Oyster Festival on October 15th and 16th comes at my favorite time of year, especially on Cape Cod. The air is crisp and smells of salt and falling leaves, perfect weather for chowder and beer. Main Street is lined with fine art and craft vendors, where you’ll find an array of unique handmade items, wearable, edible and otherwise. It is my personal tradition to ogle the jewelry of Twigs and Heather; their booth sparkles with bits of nature cast in silver. Though there is plenty of fresh, local seafood, there are many options for non-seafood eaters (does Kettle Corn count? that’s what my kids prefer to eat).
