4H Fair and More August Fun!

image_thumb3_thumb_thumb_thumb1_thum[1]

Free Family Fun! (Please Leave Your Pets at Home!)

Wednesday August 10th- Friday 12th from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

North Branch Park, 355 Milltown Road, Bridgewater, located between Routes 22 and 202.

 

Join us at the Somerset County Tent at the Somerset County 4H Fair. In addition to the library table, there are lots of tents featuring various 4H clubs – everything from animals to astronomy, bee-keeping to baton-twirling, magic to model-airplanes!  There are musical performances and lots of good eats.  Plus the fire, maintenance, and parks departments are on hand with their big trucks to climb on and around and the Children’s Museum will have a tent with dinosaurs, their step-in bubble machine, and more!  It is a great place to help your kids discover new interests. 

Since 1948, thousands of visitors have enjoyed the Somerset County 4-H Fair. The Fair has grown and changed, but there are still no admission or parking fees, no midway or carnival rides. This Fair recognizes the accomplishments of 1,000 Somerset County 4-H members and is a showcase for visitors to see a wide variety of 4-H projects in action.

Maps and schedules of daily events such as dog, horse and livestock shows are available in the information tent (and possibly online the week of the fair…check here). Twirling, go karts, rockets, magic, line dancing, model airplanes, R.C. cars, model trains and other 4-H clubs compete and perform. The Arts Tent, Science Tent and Prep Tent (for the youngest 4-H'ers) are packed with exhibits, activities for visitors, demonstrations and performances. Ten other 4-H tents house a variety of animals including dairy cows, beef, alpaca, horses, dogs, herpetology, sheep, goats, poultry, rabbits and small animals. Most animal tents have a petting area.
"Avoid the fuss, enjoy the bus!" To make getting in and out of the fairgrounds as easy as possible, free shuttle buses run from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. each day of the Fair from Raritan Valley Community College Rt. 28, North Branch.

Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer. Miranda's disbelief turns to fear in a split second when a meteor knocks the moon closer to the earth. How should her family prepare for the future when worldwide tsunamis wipe out the coasts, earthquakes rock the continents, and volcanic ash blocks out the sun? As summer turns to Arctic winter, Miranda, her two brothers, and their mother retreat to the unexpected safe haven of their sunroom, where they subsist on stock piled food and limited water in the warmth of a wood-burning stove. Told in journal entries, this is the heart-pounding story of Miranda's struggle to hold on to the most important resource of all--hope--in an increasingly desperate and unfamiliar world.

Shakespeare’s delightful coming-of-age comedy is a witty and hilarious ode to youthful aspirations, infatuations and follies. The young King of Navarre, along with three of his loyal friends, decide to dedicate themselves to the “noble pursuit of knowledge” for three full years, locking themselves away from all distractions…especially women. Their ambitious “ivory tower” is soon shaken, with the arrival of the lovely Princess of France and her three gamesome ladies-in-waiting. Filled with dazzling wordplay, strong comic characters and a few unexpected twists, LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST not only charms, but also touches the heartstrings of young and old alike. Director Abigail Isaac (“As You Like It” tour, 2010) returns with an exciting new one hour version of this delicious Shakespeare confection.

Let Your Fingers Do (More) Walking: 

Traveling this month? Commonsense Media (a great source for checking whether a film, DVD, or videogame is likely to be appropriate for your child) has some advice if you are trapped on a plane with an in-flight movie!   In Family media management by Liz Perle, on 07.20.11
We get a lot of email from parents complaining about the movies playing during their airplane trips. Being trapped with the wrong movie can be a nightmare for parents -- and if it's scary, sexy, violent, or otherwise age-inappropriate, there's not much you can do.  Here are some ways to avoid the problem.

Check before you go. Check with the airline to see what movie is playing, then go to Common Sense Media to see what you need to watch out for, and get suggestions on how to discuss it with your kids.

Talk to your kids. Prepare them before the flight. Let them know that they might see images you don't think are age-appropriate for them. Talk about how they feel when they see them, and let them know what they mean to you.

Bring alternatives. Cards, games, books -- anything to keep them from looking up at the screen. And be prepared to be engaged with your kids; they may need extra help to be distracted from what's playing.  Read More.


Has Texting Taken Over Your Home? Commonsense Media has some ideas to help you set boundaries when it comes to texting: Check out their tips.

Growing Up With Harry Potter

Growing Up With Harry Potter   By Caroline Knorr, Common Sense Media Parenting Editor
Does anyone remember life before Harry Potter? In our house, we divide my son's reading interests into two distinct eras, B.H.P. (Before Harry Potter -- when Captain Underpants ruled our world) and A.H.P. (After Harry Potter -- when the Ministry of Magic took over).

I'll never forget the day our son proudly boasted that he could read the last book in the series,Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, all by himself. It was the end of an era. My son was maturing, but would he be able to handle the decidedly mature themes of the final book?

One of the delights of discovering Harry Potter is that you see him grow up. But along with that, the subject matter of the books and movies get scarier, the villains viler, and beloved characters die.  
If your family is just getting into this magical world, here's a quick age-by-age guide for enjoying Harry Potter with your kids. Keep in mind that all kids are different, so assess your child's ability to handle frights and peril before you see the movies or read the books.   Read More.


Reading someone else’s work is fun…but it is even more fun to create your own!  Storybirds are short, art-inspired stories you make to share, read, and print.

Maintain bonds, share traditions, unite generations. Make stories in minutes. Read them like books, play them like games, and send them like greeting cards.  Want to try it out?  Go to http://storybird.com/.
