It’s that time of year again—time for free admission to dozens of state museums! On Saturday, September 28, 2013 museums will be free for each individual ticket holder plus one guest as part of the Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day Live. Over 1400 museums are already signed on to participate. Get your tickets in advance, though, because you only get one per household. I signed up for one near us; see if there’s a participating museum near you!

Here are a bunch of free printables and activities for families who love The Boxcar Children. I haven’t even thought of these books in years. I wonder if Wood Sprite would enjoy them? Right now we’re reading The Book of Three from the Chronicles of Prydain series.

Oh wow, I'm with you I had totally forgotten about The Boxcar Children. I remember loving the series, just loving it. That was such a golden age for me with books...and I'm just now realizing how great it truly was. Keep us updated if Wood Sprite reads them. If she does, I hope she's as engrossed as I was in the characters and adventures.

I will, Laurie! We're only just beginning the Chronicles of Prydain (midway through book one) and I promised Charlotte's Web, too, so it will probably be next!
