What We Learned

Things that inspired this issue, and what our editors discovered along the way.

A warm bath can help kids (of any age) wind down for the night. We found great products to get kids excited for bathtime. It may just help them adjust to earlier bedtimes when Daylight Saving Time begins.


Terrariums. We particularly like the dinosaur terrariums kids can create with the new book Tiny Dino Worlds.

Love It:

Check out our list of amazing Metro Denver playgrounds.

Leave It:

Leave the modern era behind and jump into hands-on lessons of the past at the Golden History Museum.

You Said It:

“When we went to a parent-teacher conference for one of our children, the eighth-grade world history teacher told us, ‘I can tell there’s free speech in your house.'”

—David Kopel, research director at the Colorado-based Independence Institute and father of three grown children, who encouraged respectful debate during family dinners. Page 34″

Can’t Wait:

March is full of music in the Mile High City, with a stage performance of The SpongeBob Musical, Carnival of the Animals performed by the Colorado Symphony, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood live at the Bellco Theatre, and Grammy-nominated family musician Justin Roberts and the Not Ready for Naptime Players at the Newman Center.
