Things To Do This Weekend {January 20 – 23}


Don’t let the cold keep you inside all weekend! Head downtown where you’ll find our friends the Grand Rapids Griffins at the Great Skate/Winterfest! It runs from noon on Saturday until 10:00 PM Sunday and there is a TON of family friendly fun to be had! I just wonder why it always has to fall on the coldest weekends!!?? Check out the entire schedule and see what you and your kids will enjoy!

If you’re there on Sunday, make sure you pop into one of the museums offering FREE admission for the first weekend of Museums Free 4 All.  I found some fantastic activities to teach your kids about a couple of the artists whose work they will see at the Grand Rapids Art Museum.  Because there is nothing I love more than Pretending I’m A Homeschooler!

No snowshoes required for the Grand Rapids Symphony Lollipops Concerts Saturday, which will be a performance of Little Red Riding Hood.  I am adding some learning activities for my kids because they have both seen Little Red before.

There is also Snowpalloza, Pokemon Madness, a Teddy Bear Clinic, Project Sleuth, Alphabet Safari and Experience China {we’ll talk more about Chinese New Year next week!} events throughout the weekend at the Kent District Library, and don’t forget about the Martin Luther King Jr. events at the Grand Rapids Public Library!

Don’t get your tongue stuck to any poles.  I wish I had given A.P. this advice earlier, because when I picked him up from school Tuesday… yup.  He did it.
