Kilts are not required, but are encouraged… Comment and Enter Below

The 25th ScotsFestival is taking place at the Queen Mary in Long Beach California this February 17-18 from 9am-6pm and we are giving away 4 General Admission Passes for opening day! Food, fun, and family activities are all on the agenda with live music, dancers, and the Scottish Highland Games. If your only connection to Scotland is Braveheart than this is the perfect opportunity to get an authentic feel for the culture and the history.

So what are the Scottish Highland Games? They consist of some activities you might be familiar with and others that might sound strange. Putting the Shot is similar to what we do in track and field today, but then the Scotts start throwing the interesting stuff. The Caber Toss – a large pole, The Hammer Throw – an actual sledgehammer, The Sheaf Toss – throwing a burlap bag of straw with a pitchfork. Who doesn’t want to check that out?

After watching the athletics you might want to put yourself to the test. ScotsFestival comes complete with a sixty-foot obstacle course FEAT OF STRENGTH. No joke. You can see where you stand after competing against your peers and rising to the challenge. I am for sure going to give it a try! For the little ones there is a whole section of kids activities to enjoy so everyone can get involved in the games.

A little bit about the founders;

“Standing at 6’11” and 6’9”, twin entrepreneurs from Long Island, Mike and Dan Friedman, have been reaching new heights all their lives. Growing up, the brothers stood out for their size and were commonly referred to as the “Twin Towers.” Sadly, this nickname would take on a much different meaning when they were 11 years old and lost their father, Andrew Friedman, in the World Trade Center attacks.

Win Tickets to The Liberty Science Center #LSCStarShow

 

The Liberty Science Center in nearby Jersey City, NJ has a ton to do for kids and families. They recently opened the Largest Planetarium in the Western Hemisphere- not too shabby, ay?

 

“Its diameter is almost twice as long as a bowling alley lane. Its screen is taller than four giraffes. It offers a true 8K projection. Its lights produce trillions of colors. And it will provide breaking space and astronomy news and discoveries in real time.

It is Liberty Science Center’s greatest experience yet–the largest and most technologically advanced planetarium in the entire Western Hemisphere. The only three that are bigger are in Beijing, China, and Nagoya and Niihama, Japan.”

Liberty Science Center, the largest interactive science center in the NY-NJ metropolitan area, officially opened the Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium on December 9, 2017.

The kids had an amazing time watching the live show in the domed theater. The seats we were in were pretty high up, but you can choose seats closer to the ground should you want to. The speaker used a laser pointer to show different stars and constellations in the sky, and made the sun rise and set as you watched in just a few seconds. He was also able to zoom in and out of very specific locations- one of which being the science center itself. You and your kids can see the stars at different times of the year as the speaker zooms around and gives explanations of each constellation.

“You can fit any other planetarium in the Western Hemisphere inside the Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium,” said Hoffman. “Add in the state-of-the-art technology and you have a spectacular unique theater like none other in the world. Visitors will be able to fly through the universe, experience the grandness and vastness of space, roam planetary surfaces, navigate asteroid fields, and watch the latest full-dome movies.”

#PonytailTuesday Hairstyle Challenge!

Applejack Braided Pony Style How-To:

Applejack loves to be outside. She’s honest, friendly and sweet to the core! Her friends know they can always count on her and her honesty. Her affinity towards hair accessories inspired this look. One of Snip-its Haircuts for Kids’ favorite party styles, the “One Trick Pony” gets upgraded when 3 color streaks are added. Great for party and play, your little princess will love this look and the pony who inspired it.

What You’ll Need:

  • Comb
  • A handful of bobby pins
  • 2 – plastic binders
  • Colored Hair Chalk (3 different colors)
  • Snip-its Tangle Tamer Detangling Spray
  • Snip-its Morning Miracle Mousse Styling Spray
  • Snip-its Amazin’ Spray & Stay Hairspray

Applejack Braided Pony Styling Tips:

  1. Start with clean, detangled hair. Snip-its Tangle Tamer is a quick, easy and tear-free solution to any tangles and snarls.
  2. Part off a triangle section in the front and top section of the hair and pin this hair out of your way.
  3. Take the remainder of the hair and put it in a high ponytail with a plastic binder.
  4. Now take the hair out of the triangle section and apply the hair chalk to this section before doing a loose, 3-strand braid—finishing with another plastic binder.
  5. Apply a spritz of Snip-its Amazin’ Spray & Stay Hairspray just to the top braided section to seal in the color.
  6. Attach this braid to the ponytail, wrapping it around the plastic band, and attaching with a few bobby pins underneath.
  7. Take just the top section of the ponytail and divide it into 3-equal parts.
  8. Add a different hair chalk color streak to each of the divided, top section parts—one color per divided, top section part.
    TIP: Repeating the color you used in the braid for the middle section, will make it look like one color streak continuing all the way through the style.
