Where to Play on the Weekdays: March 3-7

Snowmageddon 2010

Snowmageddon 2010



Monday – When the storm gives you snow, make a snowman. But if it’s not a Frosty-building or sledding kind of day, then celebrate the birthday (a day late) of one of the most beloved children’s authors: Get out the Dr. Seuss books — we all have ’em, right? — and enjoy his wildly imaginative rhymes, illustrations, and stories with the kids.

Tuesday – Head out to Chantilly for Air & Space exploration beyond the District. The Steven F. Udvar Hazy Center showcases flight artifacts they can’t fit into the museum on the Mall. See all kinds of air and space crafts, pretend to pilot in a flight simulator, get hands-on in a discovery station, and much more. Hours are 10am – 5:30pm. Admission is free, but parking is $15.

Wednesday – Pop in for open jump time at Pump It Up in Lanham, Md. Children ages 2-8 and accompanying adults are invited to bounce in the giant inflatables from 10am – 12pm. Admission is $8/child. If you can’t get there that early, go for Family Open Jump from 5-7pm or find sessions on different days or at other area Pump It Up locations.

Thursday – Check out the National Geographic Museum’s newest exhibit, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. Opening March 4, it promises to be an “engaging destination for space fans.” Admission is free. Hours at the museum are 10am – 6pm.

Friday – Catch a performance of Sleeping Beauty at The Puppet Co. at Glen Echo Park. Showtimes are 10am and 11:30am. Tickets are $10. (Shows are at the same times on Thursday, too.)
