Five Things for Today: October 19, 2020

The fountain at the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden


1. The National Gallery of Art’s popular program for art enthusiasts ages 7–12, Artful Conversations, is returning virtually with a special guest. Haywood Turnipseed Jr., a writer and stand-up comedian, will help participants find the humor in art. It’s free, but registration is required — sign up for one of four sessions being offered on October 22 & 23 at 4pm and October 24 & 25 at 10am.   And don’t forget you can visit the museum in person with free timed entry passes or just pop in at the Sculpture Garden, where no tickets are required.


2. If you still haven’t made it to a fall festival, weekdays are a great time to bring little ones, when crowds are smaller and admission prices often lower. Pick out a pumpkin, visit farm animals, walk through corn mazes, and more.  This KFDC post has info on where you can find the seasonal fun.


3. Watson Adventures has a new Halloween themed virtual scavenger hunt.


4.  Adding the Solo Stove to our winter wish list.  We’ve sat around one at our friends’ house, and it really does make for a great smoke-free fire pit experience, perfect for the COVID cold months.


5. A powerful message.
