Want to Win Tickets to Monster Jam?

I've never been to a giant truck show, but the video is kind of compelling. It certainly looks like non-stop action. Anyway, if you want to go, the MONSTER JAM rolls in to Tulsa's BOK Center this Friday at 7:30 p.m. Watch KTUL Channel 8's Good Day Tulsa between 9 and 10 a.m. tomorrow (Thurs.), and you'll have a chance to win tickets AND pit passes to the show after my "Time With TulsaKids" segment. I'm on Good Day Tulsa every Thurs. talking about fun things for you to do with your family over the weekend.

Besides Monster Jam, here are some more activities you might want to check out.

Tulsa Technology Center in Broken Arrow is hosting a Multicultural Diverstiy Festival on Thurs. from 6 to 9 p.m. They'll have hands-on experiences for the kids in addition to music, food and entertainment.

I've said this before, but Oxley Nature Center was one of my very favorite places to take my kids when they were in preschool and elementary school. In fact, my youngest daughter had her birthday party there when she was in 3rd or 4th grade. On Saturday, you can go birding at Oxley from 8 to 9:45. It's a free activity and fun for all ages.

Also on Saturday, the Oklahoma Aquarium will have some special hands-on activities between 10 a.m. and noon. The activities are free with admission.

And on Saturday and Sunday afternoon from 3 to 5, the Tulsa Air & Space Museum and Planetarium will help you learn more about telescopes. Kids are fascinated with the stars and planets, so feed that natural curiousity and visit the Tulsa Air & Space Museum. The Planetarium is really fun. I'm so glad we have one in Tulsa now. I always hated having to go to Oklahoma City to visit a planetarium.

The 66ers are playing Sunday night at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $10. Live sporting events make for great family entertainment.

If you're new to the community, or would like to connect with other moms, I hope you'll use our calendar to find moms' groups and family groups to join. Or go to TulsaKids Facebook page to join the ongoing conversation there.

Happy New Year to you all!
