Tricky Ricky the Magician was a big hit with his entertaining and engaging magic show. We had a very captive audience! It was interactive as he got the children involved in the show and even brought his very clever rabbit "Lucy" for some animal magic.

It includes a variety of bubble tricks of different shapes and sizes, letting the kids be right inside the bubbles and watching them rise all around them, sphere bubbles, volcano bubbles, and bubble tennis.

Note to parents and caregivers:
If your child is home sick, they must be fever-free and vomit free for 24 hours before returning to school. Many viruses are active at this time of year in the community, including enteric viruses (like norovirus) and respiratory viruses (like influenza, commonly known as the flu.)
Preventative measures can help reduce the spread of illness in the community.

Music is a natural part of life for young children. They might sing to their stuffed animals, tap their feet to the rhythm of nursery rhymes, and enjoy the sound of their parents singing to them — even if mom and dad can't quite carry a tune.
