Art&Seek Jr. is one mom‘s quest to find activities to end the seemingly endless chorus of the “I’m Bored Blues” while having fun herself. Impossible you say? Check back on Tuesdays for kid-friendly events that are fun for adults, too.
Batman, Superman, Elastigirl…. Ever wish your kids could meet some REAL superheroes? Well, here’s your chance! This Saturday the American Airlines C.R. Smith Museum will host a special event marking the accomplishments of the pioneers of Black Aviation. The celebration includes a special presentation by Donald E. “Don” Elder, an original member of the legendary Tuskegee Airmen. For those of you who want to broaden your daughter’s horizon past princesses and fairies there will also be a special tribute to women pilots. The museum will mark these “Super girls” contributions over the last 100 years, starting with Louise Quimby, the first female pilot in the U.S., who earned her wings in 1911.
UPDATE: I just found out Friday morning that Don Elder is ill and unable to attend the event, but the program is still scheduled to go on.
