Arbor Annie’s Winter Break Week 2 Roundup – January 2-6

Personally I’m looking forward to a breather this week after a hectic week of celebrating with Christmas and then my brother’s family visiting. While we had fun, it made for a long week.

Winter Break Week Picks - January 2-6

Our schedule is wide open this week, and we’re hoping to participate a few more of the fun events this week.

Our What’s Open/Closed for New Years Eve and New Years Day has a few additional closures on January 2nd.

With schools on break, there are  lots of fun family events on the calendar. A couple of week long events are:

Other fun activities for winter break are Ice Skating and Swimming.
I’ve also highlighted a few one time events below. But don’t miss the full events calendar on the website.

Sesame Street Live: Make a New Friend

Sesame Street Live: Make a New Friend will be at Fox Theatre from Jan 26-Feb 12. Learn more about the show & enter to win a 4 pack of tickets.

 

Movies

Movies are always a great option with kids home from school for break, particularly with a fairly miserable weather forecast on Monday.

There are several movies in theaters that are great for families depending on the age of your children. We enjoyed Rogue One last weekend, but don’t recommend it for young children. Moana and Sing are probably the best films for all ages. Also, be sure to check out our reviews of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find ThemDoctor Strange, and Moana

Rouge One: A Star Wars Story - Cassian Andor, Jyn Erso, & K-2SO
Disney's Moana
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Other Ideas:

There are lots of other fun activities during Winter Break. For example, check out our new Ice Skating Guide.
