End of Winter Break Weekend Roundup – January 6-8

Winter break wraps up this weekend with AAPS and many other local schools returning to session on Monday. After two holiday weekends, the events calendar is a bit back to normal this weekend.Arbor Annie's End of Winter Break Weekend Picks

Unfortunately we won’t be enjoying too many calendar events this weekend. My daughter’s birthday party is Saturday morning and then we’re going to put away some of our Christmas decorations. 

I’m looking forward to a great Sunday though. I’ll be heading to Media Days for the Detroit Auto Show representing SheBuysCars. My day starts with a Disney-Pixar press conference about Cars 3! I’ll have all the details about the latest announcements like the unveiling of the new Honda Odyssey. I’ll also be sharing tips for visiting the Auto Show with your family. I know we try to go every couple of years. Don’t miss the ticket giveaway below:

Sesame Street Live: Make a New Friend

Sesame Street Live will be at Detroit’s Fox Theatre from January 26-February 11. Olympia Entertainment has provided me with a set of tickets to giveaway to one of my readers and a set for myself.

Winter Activity Ideas

Over the last two weeks I’ve compiled some indoor activity ideas.

Ann Arbor Indoor Activities - Ann Arbor Bowling Alley Guide
Ann Arbor Indoor Pool Guide
Ann Arbor Ice Skating Guide
Ann Arbor Indoor Activities - Top 5 Ann Arbor Area Museums for Kids

Movies

It seems to be a great winter break for movies. I’ve seen friends post about the movies their family’s are seeing and the theater has been crowded when we’ve driven by. 

There are several movies in theaters that are great for families depending on the age of your children. We enjoyed Rogue One on it’s opening weekend, but don’t recommend it for young children. Moana and Sing are probably the best films for children.

Also, be sure to check out our review of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which is still in theaters.
