Five Things for Today: August 3, 2020

On the trail at Potomac Overlook Park, where nature programs are also running


1. Potomac Overlook Park has a bunch of nature-themed events for families this summer, including a Survival SKills program this Wednesday and an Owl Campfire and Hike on Thursday. You must pre-register! The park is also a great place to hike and enjoy some outdoor time.

2. PJ Library has brought their Summer Sweetness series online. The program brings families together for stories and hands-on activities around Jewish values. Each session is 30 minutes long, and it’s being presented on many dates through August, including this evening at 7pm.

3. The National Portrait Gallery’s Young Portrait Explorers program has gone online. Tuesdays at 11:00am, kids and families can join the museum on their Instagram to explore portraits of astronauts, activists, scientists, and star athletes and discover the stories behind them. They are also presenting Open Studios Fridays on YouTube, posting a video each week with a new activity or technique.

4. Time Out’s picks for the best kids shows and movies on Netflix this month are good to keep in mind for rainy days — or anytime, really.

5. I’m Traveling, Even Though I’m Stuck at Home by Rick Steves.
