Monday – Since it’s a holiday, I’m offering multiple suggestions for taking advantage of the day off from school and/or work as well as the superb weather: Enjoy the merriment of the Maryland Renaissance Festival on the only Monday that it’s open; celebrate the season at a fall festival when the crowds are likely to thin out after the weekend; or find another fantastic way to spend the day outdoors with the help of this list of ideas.
Tuesday – See Drumming with Dishes, an interactive play geared toward children ages 1-5. Presented by Arts on the Horizon, performances will take place all week at the Atlas Performing Arts Center on H Street NE. Read more about the production here.
Wednesday – Drop in for storytime at your local library. See this post from awhile back for a little background and quick links to libraries around the area.
Thursday – It’s the Iron Chef of science! See scientists from the Curiosity Zone battle it out with daring kitchen experiments as Smithsonian’s Discovery Theater presents Krazy Kitchen Science. Tickets are available online for both the 10:30am and 11:15am shows (and for shows on Friday and Saturday).
Friday – Hop on the “Eye Spy” Halloween Train at Cabin John Regional Park. Purchase tickets starting at 2pm for rides that depart every half-hour starting at 3pm. The $6 admission includes game cards and more activities for kids.
