Super Fun Wonders Early Learning Potluck Picnic

Situated in the center of Downtown Bethesda, It was a Wonderful World at Wonders Early Learning Center in Bethesda. Wonders Early Learning and Extended Day at 4805 Edgemoor Lane, Bethesda, Maryland is a well-placed childcare wonderland complete with full staff support to meet each child's daily needs. 

Best of all 'Wonders' is a lot of fun, indoors and out.  The outdoor play area is an impressively gated play station with an adjacent grassy lawn for running about and enjoying outdoor edutainment shows picnic style. And that's where we come in. Angelo and Marie's Fantastic Bubble Show has enjoyed not one but two performances with invitations to appear at other shows soon to come. While performing I was particularly impressed by the well-disciplined happy children who welcomed direction, instruction and inspiration.

Our current Bubble Show performances are a musical combination of STEM learning, Our Liquid Art and music set the tone for the outdoor potluck picnic with lots of opportunities to for kids to run about and enjoy the excitement of bubbles blowing. 

Folks from all walks of life from around the globe were there for a fun-filled family potluck picnic.  We especially loved putting moms and their babies in bubbles. Thanks to Ndara Ed S. Miles for the invite to giving what we hope was a performance worthy of potluck picnic fun.

Whitelock Community Farm Harvest Festival Bubble Show

It was a fun loving good time at the Reservoir Hill Harvest Festival. An appropriate fest thanks to the good harvest from the Whitelock Community Farm. We celebrated the occasion as hundreds of bubbles took to the air from our giant festival daisy wands.

Bubbles flit and float everywhere as kids and parents fill the park with laughter, good vibes and a reason to defy the times and feel groovy.  Next year we'll invite more harvest festival attendees to the bubble show. There will be a cloudburst of bubbles so great that those young at heart will not want to miss!

How STEM Edutainment Makes a Come Back In Baltimore

The place; Baltimore, Maryland; The time, 10:30 AM. The event; ZooBop Kids Festival at The Maryland Zoo. The challenge; For two consecutive years, the Maryland Zoo has been testing a new concept in kids entertainment. Concerts for children at the Zoo.  The test was a rousing success that would result in other venues formerly designed for adult audiences making the switch to kid based entertainment.

But live local kid based entertainment is beset by many challenges. For example, finding professional, talented and loved child entertainers that combine STEM education methods with entertainment centered on the arts, math, and science. These are rare, especially in the Baltimore Metropolitan area and the demand for them is only going to get greater as the rapid growing childcare service industry clammers for better live local STEAM based edutainment. 

Bubble Show Bubbling Station: Ages 3 and up.

Enter, Baby Beats, a creative musical duo able to produce beats, song, and music using only their vocal organs.   In addition 123 Andres adds a touch of culture and fun-time rhythm to the air. Culture queen is a one-woman show, a must have single entertainment package whose song and stories instill self-esteem and cultural enrichment. What more could possibly be needed? A strong opening act that integrates the arts into STEM instruction, capable of captivating audiences of varied ages for one solid hour.  Enter Angelo and Maries Fantastic Bubble Show.

Angelo and Marie

 Angelo and Marie, Mark Angelo Askew and Brenda Marie Askew, are a dynamic entertainment duo who have been husband and wife for over 38 years and providers of family edutainment for kids at local schools, festivals, art, music and craft venues for over the past decade.  "We combine music, choreography, basic math, science and art in an enchanting, charming entertaining bubble show program that leaves folks feeling delighted, accomplished, connected and just plain happy.

Says an enthusiastic bubble fan. Suddenly the bubble show music box plays and following a brief introduction, thousands of bubbles fill the air drawing a large excited audience of children, preteens and adults. The highlight of the show is performing KIB. Putting kids inside of bubbles. Audience line up for affectionate picture taking amid smiles, laughter, and self-esteem building applause.
