School’s Out Weekend Roundup – June 12-14, 2015

For those of us with kids in the Ann Arbor School District, tomorrow is our last day of school while other local schools have already ended or are in session for another week. I can’t believe that summer is here already.

Weekend Roundup, June 12-15, 2015

Unfortunately, the weather forecast for Friday is causing havoc with some of our last day of school traditions. But, at least we  had a great send-off to the school year on Thursday when my daughter’s Brownie Troop as we took a field trip to The Adventure Park in West Bloomfield.

Friday marks the kick-off of the Ann Arbor Summer Festival’s Top of the Park (Don’t forget that it has relocated to the South Ingalls Mall for 2015). For my family the highlight of Top of the Park this weekend is The LEGO Movie: Top of the Park Movie on Sunday night.

Another choice for Friday night is the Mayor’s Green Fair on Main Street.

On Saturday kids can start getting ready for Father’s Day next weekend by Make a “Hand Planter” for Dad! at Nature’s Garden Center or a LEGO Picture Frame for Dad at Learning Express.

Also on Saturday, Leslie Science & Nature Center holds their Monarch Butterfly Conservation Kickoff on Saturday afternoon.

Sunday kicks off with the Ann Arbor Airport Pancake Breakfast. We love this event! I haven’t mentioned it to my husband, so I still need to check our schedule (and the weather forecast).

A cool pick for Sunday is the Minecraft Battleship Workshop being held at the Downtown Library by GameStart School. It is for grades 3-10. My daughter loves Minecraft and Battleship, so I’ll have see if this fits our schedule.

Also this weekend, my family is looking forward to the release of Jurassic World. I have heard good things from people who saw it on Thursday night. With the rain in the forecast on Friday and Sunday, we are definitely considering the movie as an option. For dinosaur loving kids, I recommend the Jurassic World Dinosaur Egg Experiment at the Pittsfield Library on Saturday afternoon. Speaking of dinosaurs, don’t miss Dinosauria at the Detroit Zoo this summer.

If Jurassic World isn’t your type of movie, our family enjoyed Tomorrowland. My daughter enjoyed it enough to see it again on Monday with her grandparents after we saw it last Saturday.

Also, this weekend is a great time to pick strawberries. Rowe’s Produce Farm opened last Sunday and from what I have heard conditions are still good (although it is always wise to call before heading out to the farm).

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.
