Weekend Roundup March 13-15

The Weekend Roundup is going to be long this weekend because there are a ton of events.

Despite the events, I am personally hoping for a slow weekend. We were on vacation last week (during UM’s spring break) and this week has been extraordinarily busy.

Ann Arbor with Kids Weekend Roundup March 13-15, 2015

 

First, this weekend, I want to highlight two sponsoring events.


Ad:


On Saturday, March 14 at 4p is First Steps Kid Fest Presents Joe Reilly! at Forsythe Middle School. The concert will feature a performance by local kids performer Joe Reilly. The event benefits the First Steps program for families with kids from birth through age 5.

The second sponsoring event is the Kids Care Fair at Travis Pointe Country Club hosted by Jewish Family Services. The Kids Care Fair is a family service fair where families with kids ages 2-10 can learn about giving back to our community in a fun environment. Many local non-profits will be on hand, including some activities run by teens.

It is also a big weekend for theatrical performances. The performances started on Wednesday with the start of Wild Swan Theater’s I Can Hear the Sun which continues through Saturday. The Saline Area Players will be performing Honk this weekend. The weekend’s performances wrap up with Michigan Theater’s Not Just for Kids: Click, Clack, Moo.

No Events

At the movie theaters this week, Cinderella with the Frozen Fever short opens on Friday. My daughter and I saw a screening this week and enjoyed the movie. The Free Matinee at Quality 16 is Earth 2 Echo. Speaking of movies, did you hear the news that Disney is planning Frozen 2. It was announced yesterday.

The Mom-to-Mom sale season continues this weekend with two sales in Saline on Saturday morning. The Mom2Mom Consignment Sale is at the Liberty School and the Mom2Mom Sale at the Saline Rec Center.

Craft events this weekend include Fairie Gardens & Doors Workshop at Matthaei Botanical Gardens, Tissue Paper Flowers Kids Club Event at Michaels, and Clay Toad Houses at Ann Arbor Art Center. Learning Express is also offering a number of Rainbow Loom craft lessons on Saturday including Leprechaun Hat at 11a, Clover Charms at noon, and St Patty’s Bracelet at 2p.

Another event on our family list is the Mixed Signals workshop at the UM Museum of Natural History. This is the last of their Family Reading Workshops. My daughter really enjoyed attending the last one, so I may see if we can fit this one in as well. My daughter also enjoyed their Hands-On Demo: Bug Brains and Neurobiology.

It is also a big animal weekend with the Hands-On Museum having their Critters Up Close event in conjunction with Leslie Science & Nature Center. LSNC will also have Critter House Open Hours on Sunday afternoon and you can have a Creature Encounter with an Emu! at The Creature Conservancy on Saturday.

Finally, this weekend marks the start of Easter activities with the Easter Bunny arriving at Briarwood Mall on Friday.

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.
