There's talk of rain this weekend, which is a bummer, since there's so many great outdoor activities. Here they are - in case things look a little clearer, along with some indoor alternatives.
Saturday is LET'S EAT Charles Street, the rare even that appeals to grown-ups and kids in equal measure. For the grown-ups, there's food from about 11 great Charles Street restaurants, including Brewer's Art, Ban Thai, Maisy's, Cazbar, and Sofi's Crepes, plus live music and belly dancing performances. For kids, there's a moon bounce, face-painting, and crafts—and the belly dancing. There is also gem mining (pictured) at Clark's Elioak Farm and giraffe-feeding at the Maryland Zoo. If it's raining, go see "How to Eat Like a Child" at the Pumpkin Theater (Sunday and next weekend too) or go to the Museum of Dentistry for Tooth Fairy Day!
As I wrote about yesterday, Sunday is the BCAC Spring Festival - and we're really hoping the weather holds out for that. If not, maybe you're up for the Fancy Nancy event at Tiddlywinks, featuring a class with e Harford Ballet Company.
Of course, there are always the perrenially great-for-kids activities, including the Walters, which, besides the great, often kid-friendly exhibits, has a fantastic play area on the lower level with lots of dress up stuff, puppets, puzzles, and an art room where there are facilitators to help you and are kids make great projects and bonus: FREE; Also, the Marlyland Science Center ($3 off admission before noon on Saturdays, plus the weekly egg-drop contest), Port Discovery Children's Museum, The Zoo, two Storyville locations (we LOVE Storyville), The American Visionary Art Museum (also with kid-friendly exhibits, and the treehouse/sculpture out back), the various nature centers and conservancies (Oregon Ridge, Irvine, Howard County), and—of course!— the Aquarium.
