The Pajanimals are coming to the Holland Performing Arts Center in March.
And my kids (including this mama) are nerding out about it.
I don’t know what it is about these fuzzy muppets, but my girls adore them.
I’m pretty much a fan of anything tied to the Jim Henson Company.
So when the crew introduced Apollo, Sweetpea Sue, Squacky, Cowbella and other characters in 2008 as the Pajanimals, we watched the PBS television series.
Pajanimals helps children visualize the bedtime process, to understand that it’s normal, healthy and OK to fall asleep.
After the first mini episode, we were hooked, like the thousands of other Sprout viewers. More episodes gave me more opportunities to have bedtime discussions with my daughter Alejandra.
Some of our topics included separating from mom at the end of the day, healthy routines, sleeping through the night and being comfortable with the lights out.
Alejandra is 4 now, and we’re still working through some of these topics.
So I can’t wait to see what “Pajanimals Live: Pajama Playdate” has in store for families.
On March 15, the touring show from the Jim Henson Company will come to the Holland Performing Arts Center.
The touring show is family-friendly and full of silly fun, music, interactive dances and is designed to introduce children to theater.
Tickets, $34 and $39, go on sale Nov. 17 through www.ticketomaha.com the Ticket Omaha box office or by phone at 402-345-0606.
