Spring Forward Weekend Roundup – March 6-9

I can’t get used to the time change being so much earlier than it used to be, but it really is this weekend and we will all lose an hour of sleep on Saturday night as the clocks “Spring Forward” an hour. Fortunately, Ann Arbor Public Schools are closed on Monday to give us an extra day to recover from the time change.

Spring Forward Weekend RoundupThis is the last regular weekend of Girl Scout Cookie Booths. There will be some “bonus booths” March 21-23, but if you want Girl Scout cookies, I recommend stocking up now. My daughter’s troop doesn’t have a booth this weekend, so I have no time/place to suggest.

Tomorrow night is also the Leslie Science & Nature Center’s Parents Night Out program. You need to register in advance, so be sure to register today!

Parents Night Out: Creatures of the Night

The Mom-to-Mom sale season kicks off this weekend with Mom-to-Mom sales sponsored by Huron Valley Parents of Multiples and Triangle Cooperative Preschool.

One event that we are looking forward to is the Michigan Theater’s Free Family Movie. They will be showing The LEGO Movie in 3D. Admission is free for kids ages 12 and under. There are showings at 1:30p on both Saturday and Monday.

Speaking of LEGO, Learning Express Toys has several fun LEGO events on Saturday. They will have LEGO builds at 11a and 2p and LEGO Minifigure trading at 3p. Advance registration is required for these events, so drop-in or call to let them know you’ll be attending.

Craft events this weekend include a Home Depot Kids WorkshopFairie Gardens & Doors Workshop at Matthaei Botanical Gardens, Ugly Monsters at Ann Arbor Art Center, and Felt Flower Fun at Malletts Creek library.

For parents of preschoolers, the Henry Ford will be holding their monthly Macy’s 2nd Monday event on Monday, March 9 from 10a-noon. My daughter really enjoyed these events as a preschooler.

Ann Arbor with Kids is your go-to source for Ann Arbor Family Fun. It got its start in an activity list that I was compiling for the playgroup I ran at our church. When my daughter started preschool, the other moms were thrilled to hear about my list. I decided to take the list public in 2009.
