Stay warm and entertained at the American History’s Museum’s new Culture Wing
1. In case you haven’t heard, there’s winter weather on the way — just in time for the official start of winter. You’ll likely be seeking inside things to do and places to go, so keep The Great Indoors list handy. It has over 100 ideas for outings around the area that take place in the warm comfort of, well, the great indoors.
3. I’ve heard and read great things about this game — and finally found it for a reasonable price! (It was sold out for awhile and only available from third party sellers for much more.)
4. Just a reminder about the KFDC Holiday Gift Guide. If you still need ideas for presents, you’ll find plenty that you can buy with the click of a button or a quick trip to a local shop, many of them supporting area businesses and people that help make DC the amazing, dynamic city it is.
1. Even the most wonderful time of the year can sometimes feel chaotic and overwhelming. The round-up of peaceful places in DC is a good one to keep handy for if/when you need a break from all the holiday hoopla or just want to go someplace to chill out — with or without kids.
2. A couple of fun workshops coming up this weekend… On Saturday, Silver Oaks Cooperative School is hosting a Drop-Off Winter Workshop for kids ($40). You can leave your kids with them for three hours of crafty fun and have some time to yourself.Children ages 5-12 are welcome to join the school to make four lovely gifts, which they’ll wrap so they can stay a surprise until it’s time to open them. Register in advance! And on Sunday, Lea Craigie, the 2022 National Cherry Blossom Artist, designer, and muralist, is hosting a Miniature Putz House Workshop for kids and adults in Takoma Park ($25). All supplies will be provided to create a sweet mini holiday house. Drop in anytime from 10am – 3pm, but be sure to get tickets ahead to reserve your house!
