Remember this post when I said someone should do this great idea for an event here? Well, someone did. ME! (With help, of course.) I’m the organizer for this upcoming fabulous new event at The Discovery Center this month.

Here’s the info:
MOVE IT! DIG IT! DO IT!β€”The Science of Machines – The Discovery Center

Sandbox days with a twist. An outdoor, hands-on family friendly Event where kids can get an up-close look at large construction vehicles and other machines! Learn about hydraulics, air compressors, and simple machines like levers & pulleys. Kids can grab the wheel, or create their own take home projects while they explore how machines work, through play and activities. Bring the whole gang and let them stir up the dust!!!

When: Sat. Oct 24,

Hours: 11 am – 3 p.m.

Cost: $5.00 per person, under 2 yr. free

Location: The Discovery Center, 1944 N Winery Ave, Fresno (McKinley & Winery)

Phone: 559/ 251-5533

You can download the printable flier here, and please help spread the news about this event far and wide. Forward the link to the flier to all your local friends and family and print them up and take to work and your kids schools and such! Post them at your favorite stores and leave them in bathrooms! πŸ™‚ Please help in any way you can to help make this event HUGE! The Discovery Center is making a comeback and we want YOU and your families to be a part of it!

There will be a harvest/Halloween theme, so feel free to wear your (NONscary, please, this is a children’s event) costume!

And…. PASS IT ON! πŸ™‚

I am the owner and only person that runs I created this site in 2001 for myself to fill a need, and it's continued to be useful to our community so I continue to develop and grow it! It is a labor of love. I am a homeschooling, work-at-home mama of 2 teens, living in Fresno with her goofy husband and 4 much-adored kitties, just trying to survive the heat in the summers and find things to do with our family that doesn't take too much of our very stretched pocketbook. And sharing info and ideas here with you. I also run several other online homeschooling businesses, including and, and run the largest and most active local homeschool Facebook group, the Fresno Area Homeschoolers group, among other online groups.
