Where to Play on the Weekdays: May 14-18

Hanging with Teddy at Rooselvelt Island


Monday – Get a dose of nature and history in one fell swoop at Roosevelt Island.  Hike the easy trails, look out for wildlife, and explore the Memorial Plaza to learn about the legacy of President Theodore Roosevelt. The entrance to the park is located right off the GW Parkway, just past the Rooselvelt Bridge.  It’s accessible only from the northbound lanes. If weather doesn’t permit, find an alternative activity here.

Tuesday – Attend Mommy & Me (& Daddy Too!), the Rockville Town Square’s free monthly program  for kids.  Storytime, interactive movement, arts & crafts, and merchant sponsored activities are part of the active learning and creative play. The free program runs from 10am – 12pm on the third Tuesday of every month. UPDATE: This event as been rescehuled to May 22 due to the weather forecast. Again, go here for a huge list of ideas for indoor fun.

Wednesday – Little ones can be a “scientist for a day” at the new, free Science + You exhibit housed in the Foundry Lofts right across from the Yards Park. Find out what to expect there in this post from last week.

Thursday – Take your pick of the many farms now open for the season to gather your own strawberries.  Just about all of the places offering pick-your-own opportunities are now welcoming visitors to their fields.  See this post for a list of them.

Friday – Join the dance party at the Atlas on H Street as the Boogie Babes present Bridgette and Dawn.  Showtime is 10:30am. Admission is $5/child, free for siblings 6 months and under.
