Magic's In The Air With Austin's Magician Extraordinaire: Peter The Adequate [Review + Discount]


Do you believe in magic? I do. I always have. And - I am fascinated with magicians. My husband smiled at me with a “I-wonder-who-has-more-fun”-smile when I took the girls to their first magic show and got them a magician box for their birthday (and he’s right, I secretly play with it when they’re at school - just kidding).

So, I was very excited to have Austin’s wonderful magician Peter the Adequate come to my daughter’s birthday party. I had seen his show before and I knew the kids would love his show. And they did. Read our review and take advantage of two special discounts just for Live Grow Play Austin readers.

German Christmas Traditions And How To Prepare For Christmas The German Way


Christmas is the most important and most celebrated holiday in Germany and is very much enjoyed by children and parents alike. However, the Holiday season and pretty much the entire month of December (even the last week of November) demands a lot from parents in Germany. Preparing for the festivities is very time consuming and due to extreme sugar consumption you’ll see more kids bouncing off the walls and driving their parents insane than in any other month – as the following Christmas traditions will attest.
