Top 5 Things To Do At Georgia Aquarium This Spring Break

  1. Aquanaut Adventure: A Discovery Zone: Georgia Aquarium’s newest gallery, this unique experience allows parents and children to learn about aquatic life as they complete a series of educational and fascinating challenges to become a certified Georgia Aquarium Aquanaut. This is something my family did recently. I am surprised at how much they retained from that day!

 

Touching things!

Touching things!

  1. Animal Encounters and Interactions: Guests can go behind the scenes and enjoy an exclusive personal experience with one of our aquatic animals through a Georgia Aquarium animal encounter or interactive program. Guests can choose from a Penguin Encounter, Dolphin Encounter, Sea Otter Encounter, or our Journey with Gentle Giants swim and dives programs.

 

  1. AT&T Dolphin Tales: The AT&T Dolphin Tales show is an experience you won’t want to miss which entertains, motivates and inspires guests. AT&T Dolphin Tales shows are held throughout the day and are included in Georgia Aquarium admission. This is the Aquarium’s big live show. You would be shocked how many people can fit into that auditorium, so even if the line looks really long trust me when I say they will fit you in.

 

  1. Behind the Seas Tours: Explore the secrets of Georgia Aquarium! Behind-the-scenes tours are available for guests interested in learning more about the day-to-day operations of the Aquarium and learn more about our animals and their care.

  1. Explore! Atrium Show: This one-of-a-kind live show combines live-action film, animation, acrobatics, large-scale puppetry and dance. Explore! takes guests on an aquatic adventure that opens the imagination and explores our connection to the ocean.

We had so much fun earlier this year, if you haven’t been to the Aquarium in a while this Spring Break would be a great time to see the new exhibits. If you are having a Staycation this year, check it out!

New African Penguin Chicks at the Georgia Aquarium

Guess what hatched over the Georgia Aquarium last month?

Egg Pip (B15004)

Vet exam B15001

For the fourth year in a row a successful hatching of African penguin chicks. Four chicks made their debut to their penguin parents throughout the month of January and are being monitored daily by Aquarium and veterinary care staff. Breeding programs like Georgia Aquarium’s are highly important since African penguins are included on these endangered lists due to very rapid population decline from overfishing and environmental changes.

How to See the New Penguin Chicks:

The penguin chicks can be viewed behind the scenes in the Georgia-Pacific Penguin Nursery beginning in late February. For more information check out Georgia Aquarium’s Behind the Scenes Tour.

Our family visited the Georgia Aquarium a few weeks ago for the opening of the new Aquanauts Exhibit. The Georgia Aquarium, located in Downtown Atlanta near Centennial Park is always re-inventing itself, so if you haven’t been in a while, you would be surprised at the changes! Their other offerings included in the ticket price include the exciting live and acrobatic Dolphin Show and 4D movie. My family with kids aged 4-10 enjoyed every bit of it.

Kidecals-Labels for Kids

The Kidecals company contacted me recently to see if I would be interested in reviewing their product,  labels for kids, that are “delightfully versatile, crazy durable”.

I said sure. I wasn’t too sure how many uses I could come up with for some waterproof labels.

And then I saw their website! Now I had some ideas!

Screen shot 2014-09-01 at 1.52.15 PMScreen shot 2014-09-01 at 1.52.24 PM

 

Ordering from the site was fun.

I have ordered labels before for the kids and sometimes they can be too generic or baby-ish. But this company, Kidecals has a great selection of labels.

I am somewhat of an artist, so I tend to order the more “hipster” style mom stuff. They actually break out their styles:

Screen shot 2014-09-01 at 1.58.47 PM

I hit the Retro category first and I ordered these. Waterproof, colorful, relaxed camper style (also reminds me the Japanese flag). Looks cool and is good for boys and girls and adults stuff. I went with the Mega Set,  I wanted a nice mix of different sizes for various applications.

These actually might make a nice gift for someone who has everything!

Canoe Labels by Kidecal

The labels came really fast.

And then I started labeling…

And labeling.

And labeling.

Here are all the uses so far:

  • Kids book cart for school
  • 3 bookbags
  • 4 water bottles
  • My cd player I use at the co-op
  • My binders
  • The kids binders
  • My Ipad case
  • My Thirty-One bag
  • My clipboard

I still have some left, every few days, I find something else that could use a label.

Because as a family of 5 we do leave stuff behind sometimes;) And it’s nice when things find their way home right?

Thanks for reading!

Legoland Discovery Center Atlanta at Phipps

My homeschool group went a couple of weeks ago to Phipps Mall to checkout the new Discovery Land.

Legoland Discovery Atlanta Coupon

 

NEED A COUPON FOR LEGOLAND DISCOVERY CENTER ATLANTA?

The kids had a blast! Seriously, it was like a theme park. So much fun had by all. They were crying at the end of the day when I said it was time to go! Like a flashback, it came back to Zombiemommy in her Florida childhood those times when were leaving the docks of the Magic Kingdom and in the darkness  under the blaring fluorescents those kids were pitching fits because it was time to go home…Totally made sense to me now.

First off because we were a larger group we got a special presentation by a Lego Team Leader. We divided into groups and every table put together a vehicle to be tested in a race.

They had 2 real rides. A pedaling ride (Merlin’s Apprentice) that was like an amusement park ride that went up and down as high as you could pedal (or not if you were afraid). Luckily, we had gone early on a Monday so it wasn’t so busy that the kids couldn’t ride it over and over again! The other big ride was “Save The Princess”, you were in a car and armed with a laser gun which you could shoot at targets. It was like an old school fairway game meets “It’s A Small World”.

Legoland Discovery Center Atlanta

The other cool feature was the 4-D movies. There were 3 or 4 different choice that ran every 15 minutes. We caught every one!

IMG_3476

For the younger folks there is a Soft Play Area (not open to adults). Which is like an exaggerated indoor’s kids park. My toddler loved that one!

For the girls, there is a girl Lego area, which has a Karaoke microphone setup. It was cute and of course the girls were drawn to it.

Oh yeah, Legos.

LegoLand Discovery Center Build

There were buckets of Lego in the center of the park with ramps to test your vehicles.

The kids seriously had a blast and I was shocked by how busy you could stay here. My friends killed the entire day to get the value for their dollar! From opening to close. They had Sinatra playing to kick them out (kidding).

The price is a bit steep considering its size but I found that you can really enjoy yourself if you can stay for a while.

HOW TO SAVE MONEY at Legoland Discovery Center

1) Use a Coupon! Go here to get a $5 coupon

2) Look for Atlanta Deal Specials (Groupon, HalfOff Depot,SweetJack)

3)  Go in the afternoon, according to their online website there is a special $12.50 after 4pm.
