It’s a little early for the “Things to Do” post, but there are two contests for Playhouse Disney Live tickets to Saturday’s show and I wanted to give you all a fighting chance. Head over to GR Kids and Stacey Says to find out more and to enter. Good luck!
The Zoo reopened Monday after a winter and budget induced three month closing, but there is a Grand Re-Opening Bash on Saturday. Personally, I’m going to wait until the weather is a little warmer. I know what you’re going to say. The animals are more active when it’s cold. Here’s the problem with that: I’m more cold when it’s cold.
The Home And Garden Show runs all weekend and while it isn’t exactly a kid’s event but they have a lot of kid-specific activities planned this year. I’m glad to hear that, because last year there were some professional sand castle builders who were very intense and serious about their craft, and a mob of kids who wanted to play in the sand and it got kind of ugly. There is nothing worse than getting the stink eye from a Sand Castle Builder.
The Grand Rapids Symphony presents Ferdinand the Bull Saturday. If you can’t go to one of the school performances, this is worth going on the weekend. It’s a fantastic book and your kids will love it.
Blandford Nature Center’s Sugarbush is back. This is a fantastic and unique learning opportunity you will be hearing more about from me next week. I love me some maple syrup and need an entire post dedicated to it’s harvest.
Meijer Gardens brought back its butterflies. Personally, they freak me out but I go every year. For the children. We have a membership, but you can win tickets from GR Now too (hurry and enter by Wednesday!) Or, check out the Circulating Membership for a free pass from the Grand Rapids Public Library.
