Weekend Events Planner: Aug 3-5

It's the weekend - YEA! I'm excited to visit with a good friend who is in town and to hit the free movie in the park tomorrow night at Rolling Hills. What's on your event planner for this weekend? Have any hot events to attend? What about hanging out in Gallup Park, hitting the Independence Park beach or even going to the drive in movies? There is always a lot to do in and around town!

Friday, August 3:
Periscopes up at a free craft at the Ann Arbor District Library (3333 Traverwood Dr., Ann Arbor ), at 2:00-3:30 p.m.  Kids in grade K-5 will make a simple periscope and learn how it works.

Saturday, August 4:
Get your child excited about heading back to school as they build their very own cork board during the Home Depot Kids Clinic. Since cork is sustainable, participants will even get some specially sponsored give-away items from the Lorax movie. The program runs from 9:00 a.m. - noon.

Start the afternoon off right with a free drop-in class where kids ages 6+ can make their own origami sea creatures at the Ypsilanti District Library (8975 MacArthur Blvd. Superior Township) at 2:00-3:30 p.m.

Have a budding singer or musician in your midst? Then the Kid's Open Stage at Oz Music (1920 Packard St., Ann Arbor) is a must. 4:00 p.m.

End your evening with a picnic, a blanket and your family for a free movie in the park at Rolling Hills to see Cars 2. There will be plenty to do early, and the movie starts at 9:00 p.m. 

Sunday, August 5:
If you have a child with autism, then the Ann Arbor District Library (2359 Oak Valley Dr., Ann Arbor) may be worth checking out Sunday 1:00-3:00 p.m. for their Play Connection. Parents with kids Grade K-5 are invited to follow their child's lead as they journey from the building blocks to the puppet corner to the fun sensory activities in this open play session. Onna Solomon and Dr. Rick Solomon of the Play Project will be on hand to foster interaction and answer questions.

Want to get outdoors, then a guided Butterfly Walk may be in the cards for you and the family. 2:00 p.m.
