KidFriendly DC is a personal blog written and edited by me, Linda Samuel.

It takes time to create all this content and keep my blog running, and it’s available to readers for free, so I accept paid advertising, sponsorships, affiliate partnerships, and other forms of compensation. However, payments have no impact on my opinion of any programs, places, services, or products.

I accept private advertising from companies I am happy to endorse and genuinely believe will be of interest to my readers. Banners appear on the blog sidebar and sometimes within blog posts. I also occasionally write dedicated, or sponsored, blog posts and run giveaways for compensation — and always disclose when I do.

My affiliate advertisers include or have included:
Activity Rocket
Gymboree/Crazy 8/Janie & Jack
Hannah Andersson
Kiwi Crate
Land of Nod
Little Passports
Mabel’s Labels
Primary Apparel
Public Bikes
Tea Collection
Tiny Prints

If you click on their ad, usually a banner on the sidebar or within a post, and make a purchase, and occasionally when you sign up for a service, I get a small commission. (Thanks for doing either of those, by the way!)

This all helps me bring you KidFriendly DC, which I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy creating.

  13. Hello!
    I work with an organization called Corazon Latino – we host outdoors events for multicultural families in the DMV area. I wanted to bring a fun, educational family event to your attention. We, in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and National Parks Service, are hosting a family-friendly, free event on June 10th at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens from 2:30 – 5:30 PM.

    The event focuses on citizen science – we’ll be using apps like iNaturalist to track the spread of an invasive species called the emerald ash borer and talk about ways we can protect trees in our communities -there will also be food, music, and dancing. The event is free, bilingual, and fun for all ages!

    I’d love to discuss the event with you and hope you’ll consider promoting it.

  17. Good afternoon,

    On September 1, 2018, PokeWorld, a new service for kids, will open in DC. With this three-hour long activity, kids will spend about half the time walking around the city while they search for and catch Pokemon. They will also spend about 45 minutes battling each other utilizing a portable Nintendo Switch. Healthy snacks and organic juice will be provided. Children should wear comfortable clothes, walking shoes and bring a water bottle. Prices range from $35 to $45 for this activity.
