Ready for a new week? You will be with these ideas for activities with the kiddos, one for each day…
Monday – Put apple pie on the dessert menu this week after you go apple picking at one of many area orchards.
Tuesday – Let the kids burn some energy and have a blast at the PG Sport & Learning Complex Gymnastics Center. It’s open play every Tuesday from 11:30am – 12:30pm, and they’ve got everything — trampolines, balance beams, soft mats and big tumbling areas, rope swings and foam pit, and more. Admission is $6/child.
Wednesday – Explore art through a story and hands-on activity at The Kreeger Museum. Children ages 3-5 (accompanied by an adult) can listen to a story and learn about works of art from the museum’s collection, then make a creation of their own. The program takes place every first and third Wednesday of the month from 10-11am and focuses on a new theme each time. The fee is $7, free for members. Class size is limited, so register by calling 202.338.3552 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If this week books up, do some advance planning and register for a later date.
Thursday – Celebrate the new season at Ticonderoga Farm’s Fall Pumpkin Festival. Take a hayride, pick a pumpkin from the patch, play on the Noah’s Ark playground, enjoy apple cider and much more. Admission is $8.95 on weekdays ($14.95 on weekends and holidays when more attractions are open), hours are 9am – 6pm.
Friday – Skip in to the weekend with The Boogie Babes! They’re doubling the weekly musical fun with a show every Friday at the Atlas Performing Arts Center (they also host shows every Thursday at Eastern Market’s North Hall). Mr. Skip will have the tot crowd shaking their sillies out this week. The fun starts at 10:30am, admission is $5/child, free for siblings 6 months and under.
