Dora

CLOSED: This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to our winners.
YOU CAN VIEW OUR LIST OF GIVEAWAY WINNERS HERE.

I know how excited all of you were for our last COSI giveaway so when I received the opportunity to go and learn about their new Dora and Diego: Let's Explore exhibit I decided jump on the opportunity. If nothing else but for my loyal readers sake and not my own. ;) So this one is for all of you that are like my family and love COSI!

Call me a little crazy, but sometimes I feel like putting B (who is 2) in the stroller at a museum is a two sided problem. See, if we don't bring the stroller... he thinks he needs to run free like he's a wild animal that has been caged up his whole life. BUT if I bring the stroller.. then I feel bad that he can't really experience what is at the museum at stroller-length away. If I let him out of the stroller that I have brought -it's really then me just trying to chase him around while pushing an empty stroller. It's just sort of a loose- loose type of situation for me it seems. So maybe I was crazy when we left that morning but we headed to COSI sans-stroller. Needless to say I'm glad I left it at home because B was so excited to discover all the exciting and enchanting things in this magical world or Dora and Diego that COSI had created.

SpaceshipWe were able to do all sorts of exciting things like helping Tico gather nuts in baskets, joining the Pirate Piggie's crew to divide up the pirate treasure and count coins, piloting a rocket ship to the Purple Planet and much more! B was beside himself with all the great things he could discover. His favorite part was the slide right in the middle of the room. He probably went up and down that thing at least 20 times. Now.. he couldn't do that in a stroller. We MIGHT have caused a bit of a slide traffic jam though when he decided to just sit at the top sucking his thumb blocking everyone else, but he had a great time still.

Pirateship

Well, COSI has generously given us TWO sets of 4 tickets to giveaway.
Includes four (4): General admission voucher to all COSI's permanent exhibits and Extreme Screen voucher

Main entry: Who is your favorite character on Dora or Diego? (Be sure to leave your comment on this post so that it gets counted)

Earth FareOkay, for all you lovers of Trader Joe's, I think you are going to like Earth Fare supermarket!

Tomorrow Wednesday, October 19 Earth Fare is having their grand opening at 8am. They are located at Cross Pointe Center, where the old Stitching Post was. While they aren't having any grand opening freebies tomorrow (see I knew what you all are were hoping) they have something better going on every week. Earth Fare has Kids Eat Free every Thursday from 4-8pm where kids eat free with an adult entree purchase of $5 or more. But here's what makes their Family Dinner Night so great, there is typically entertainment for the kids (read: clowns, balloons, crafts..etc), your kiddos get to choose what they eat and up to 6 kids can eat free with a $5 adult entree purchase! This is a great deal for those of you with larger families.

I was lucky enough to get a tour of the store today and lest you think that the parents are getting the short end of the stick with this deal there is a deli, cafe, smoothie bar, soup, salad, bakery, sushi bar and even a pizza kitchen for you to choose from!! Here are the kids options, I love how there is something for just about EVERY kid no matter how picky. (They get to choose one item from each category)

Main Dish

  • Turkey Provolone Roll-up
  • Veggie & Hummus Roll-up
  • Soy Nuggets with Ranch Dressing
  • Grilled Cheese Sandwich
  • Pizza Slice
  • PB & J Roll-up

They make their kids menu even better by having a high standard for their products.

There is a huge section of bulk food and you can even bring in your own containers, just be sure to stop by the front desk when you come in so that they can weigh it so you don't pay for the weight of your container (how cool is that?!?).

Be sure to sign up for their weekly freebies/coupons and deals. I've been receiving them for about 3 months now and I've received ones for Free 1lb of Chicken (or Veggie Burgers) with $10 purchase, free 1lb of grapes with any purchase and free Earth Fare brand cookies with any purchase.. those are just a few of the coupons that I've gotten already. So make sure you sign up and you can get these great deals too. They also have coupons in store, they hand out coupon booklets when you come in and there are even coupons on their site. For those of you that are like me, you can even show them your coupons on your electronic device so that you can save paper, or just copy down the PLU code for your coupons. Plus be sure to follow them on Facebook for events and promotions. Personally I'm really excited to actually grocery shop there, and I'm almost positive that we will be going to Family Dinner Nights on Thursday!

( Earth Fare Family Night has been added to our Kids Eat Free list)

DinosaursCLOSED: This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to our winners.

UPADTE: WE NOW ARE GIVING AWAY 2 SETS OF PASSES!!

Last Wednesday I packed myself, my kids, Once A Month Mom and her kids all into my van and we headed out to COSI to a special preview of their new Dinosaurs exhibit. Suffice it to say, the kids were excited to go. We have passes to Cincinnati Museum and can go to COSI for free, but this was a special chance to see the Dinosaur exhibit up close and personal. Rarr!!

COSIThe Dinosaurs: Explore, Escape, Survive exhibit is over 10,000 square feet of dino-rific fun! There are giant robotic dinosaurs, which kind of scared B since he's only almost 2. There was an amazing educational and hand-on maze, and about a dozen computer simulators that let your kids have a hand at being a dinosaur. The computer simulator was by far the favorite part of the exhibit for my boys. They ran from chair to chair trying to decide which dinosaur they wanted to be, until they found the 4 steering wheel car which all the kids promptly sat down it. Although, it left me wondering how on earth that car drove with 4 drivers, it must be pretty hard to get anywhere when everyone is turning their wheel in a different direction. As we drove home and B was sound asleep (because all Moms know that means it was a good/tiring day) C looks at me and says, "Mama, thanks so much for taking letting me go to that cool special Dino thing" and in my book- that is a GOOD day!

COSI

Do you have a dino fan in your home? I know since PBS started showing Dinosaur Train that my boys seem to care more about dinosaurs than they did before. Now, here is your chance for them to get up close and personal with some dinosaurs! Well, COSI has generously given us a set of 4 tickets to giveaway.
Includes four (4):
General admission voucher to Dinosaurs: Explore. Escape. Survive. exhibit, Waking the T.Rex 3D: The Story of SUE movie, and all COSI's permanent exhibits.

Main entry: Leave us your best dinosaur sound! Roar, growl, grr- let us hear it! (Be sure to leave your comment on this post so that it gets counted)

Want more chances to win? Well, here are some more ways you can enter, just be sure to leave a seperate/ new comment for each additional entry.

Kettering Rec CenterCLOSED: This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to our winners.
YOU CAN VIEW OUR LIST OF GIVEAWAY WINNERS HERE.

Well, tomorrow the first day of summer is officially here and this summer is turning out to be a pretty hot one already! If you are looking for a way to cool off be sure to check out the Kettering Recreation Complex's new and improved water park: Adventure Reef. This 3-acre outdoor aquatic facility was built in 1990 but has undergone a serious facelift this past year. You can find more information about all the changes on their site. They also have several pictures of all the other renovations that are happening around the complex on their Facebook page.

Adventure Reef sits where Water Raves the old water-park was, but they have added an interactive splash pad, a waterfall pool, a water playground, a shaded shelter and two giant slides with their own splash pool. Now since Kings Island a little bit of a drive (and pricy), Splash Moraine closed and all the local free sprayground parks only are able to fit a few dozen kids, the Kettering Rec Center's Adventure Reef with its 1,400 capacity is sure to draw big crowds this summer. Plus with admission for Kettering residents, at only $3 for youths (3-17 years) and $3.50 for adults or for non-residents, $6 for youth and $7 for adults, it seems like a very reasonable option. Besides I love that kids under 3 are FREE!!

Since I haven't been to Adventure Reef yet (but I'm hoping to get there soon) I decided to go to my panel of experts A.K.A. my readers, and asked several of you what you thought of it. So straight from the mouths of local moms here's what you all had to say:

Erin H- It's a TON of fun... They have a gated toddler area for 4yrs and under that OLDER children are not even allowed in. For mommies with little ones, this is great! They have a splash park, slides, and a water park type area for older kids (3/4+). If you are a pass holder you can get in at 11:30, set up your spot, and get in the pool a good 15min before others.
It gets super busy around 1:30/2ish, but early evening until close it seems the crowd seems to thin out. During break times you can stay in the water with your kids if they are 3 and under. The only down side is that they don't open until 12 (to non members) and close at 8pm.
Tami R- Yes, it is great!! I love the new gated toddler area and the new spray water section stays on even during break time as well! My 2 1/2 year old loved the smaller slides although it was a little crowded she jumped right in!
Jenny R- The gated toddler area is great...if all of your children are under 6. If not, then it's not much help.
Tricia C- Love the toddler area that is fenced in, and I'm so happy that the gross sand is gone. Plus the new regulations about Sunday being for residents and pass-holders is great!
Heather B- I love it! My kids have the best time there!
Wendi C- We really love it, however I do think it will be a bit less crowded/crazy when the big pool opens up in a week or so. I think that will help to free up some space in the other areas of the park.
Tess A- We've been and we absolutely love it. There's something for kids of all ages. Buying a family pass is definitely the way to go. We look forward to spending many hours there this summer.
Lizzie A- I am wondering if the new one is good for little kids??? I loved how the old one had the little pool and slide for little ones and shallow play areas in the main pool...my little one is 3 and hates water on his head so he won't be going near the big bucket if he sees it spill!!!

So, to kick off the first officially day of summer we have a giveaway! We are giving away 13 sets of passes for our readers. That means 13 families will win 2 free tickets each! How fun is that?! If you have a pass already, maybe you can win it for a friend and they can go with you to Adventure Reef.

Main entry: Tell us how you plan on enjoying this summer. (Be sure to leave your comment on this post so that it gets counted)

Want more chances to win? Well, here are some more ways you can enter, just be sure to leave a additional/ new comment for each additional entry requirement that you fulfill.

- Follow Deals For Dayton on Facebook, if you already do just leave that in a comment.

- Subscribe to our weekly email newsletter, if you already do just leave that in a comment.

- Follow the Kettering Recreation Complex on Facebook, if you already do just leave that in a new comment. Please feel free to let them know that Deals For Dayton sent you!

I recently recevied a request from a reader:

Amy,

Hey! Just curious...which zoo pass/museum pass do you guys have? I'm trying to figure out the best one to get!- Melissa C

So, for any other readers out there wondering the same thing here is what I've found in my research of the "Best Museum Pass" topic.

First let me say that it really depends on your family. What worked for my family as the best deal might not be for you and your family. When deciding which museum we wanted to get a pass to I went through the reciprocal program lists and based it off of what museums we would visit the most. The Boonshoft is a great deal because it allows you to visit science centers, zoos and aquariums, and children's museums (if you get the Adventurer pass). Cincinnati Museum will allow card holders from Boonshoft free admission, but it is limited to the Museum of Natural History & Science. If you purchase the Adventurer pass ($100) you can also visit the Duke Energy Children's Museum wing at Cincinnati Museum. Our family really loves Cincinnati Museum and so we decided that it was worth the extra money to get a pass to Cincinnati Museum so that we could visit all three museums at Cincinnati. Plus the pass we got allows for a guest or caregiver to take our kids to the museum even.

Boonshoft Museum of Discovery: Boonshoft is located on DeWeese Parkway in Dayton. There are daily events, special events, traveling exhibits and every day fun that includes hands-on science experiments, planetarium shows, visiting with live animals, story times and more. Membership to Boonshoft also entitles card holders to free unlimited admission to SunWatch Indian Village/Archaeological Park, Fort Ancient, an Ohio Historical Society facility in Warren County, and Planetarium Shows and discounts on Laser Shows at the Boonshoft Museum. You can use your Membership card to gain free admission or reduced rates to over 300 science museums, zoos and aquariums worldwide through their reciprocal program.

Membership Levels:
Military
- $69, Family- $79, Grandparent- $79: Reciprocal benefits: Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) and Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA)
Adventurer
- $100, Explorer- $250, Discoverer- $500: Reciprocal benefits: Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC), Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), and Association of Children’s Museums (ACM)

 

Cincinnati Union Terminal: Cincy Museum is located on Western Avenue in Cincinnati in the old Union Terminal station. There is an Omnimax Theater, Cincinnati History Museum, Duke Energy Children's Museum, Museum of Natural History & Science and traveling exhibits. Each museum is in a separate wing of the museum and is a museum in itself. Membership to Cincinnati Museum entitles card holders to unlimited admission to all museums and discounts on traveling exhibits. You can use your membership card to gain free admission or reduced rates to over 300 science museums worldwide through their reciprocal program.

Membershop Levels:
Individual
- $55, Dual- $95, Family- $130: Reciprocal benefits: Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) and Time Travelers history network
Family Premium- $160, Concourse- $325, Whispering Foundation- $575: Reciprocal benefits: Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC), Time Travelers history network and Association of Children’s Museums (ACM)

The reciprocal program doesn’t apply to centers within a 90-mile radius of home. But Cincinnati Museum and Boonshoft do accept card holders from each others museum for the reciprocal program. In addition, the free general admission does not include tickets to theaters, planetarium shows or simulators. Be sure you bring your membership card from your science center or museum to get free admission to any out-of-town science center or museum.

*Cincinnati Museum and Boonshoft participate in several reciprocal networks. Reciprocity is a mutual exchange of privileges between two institutions, allowing free or reduced admission to one science and technology center, zoo or children's museum to members of another science and technology center, zoo or children's museum. Member admission and discounts vary, so it is advised to contact the destination location before visiting for full details about their participation in the network. Reciprocal network participation can be subject to change without notice.
