Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

Don’t miss the Valentine’s Day Activities today and even a few throughout the weekend. While most of the craft events were last weekend, there are still lots of special Dining Options.

Ann Arbor Valentines Day for Kids


Ad:


With mid-winter break, this weekend is a bit light on events.

Our family has two priorities this weekend – Girl Scout Cookie Booths and a late Valentine meal. We are debating a few options for our Valentine’s meal.

AADL has some great events this weekend – Dinosaur Camp and Craft Tube Monsters on Saturday,  AADL Upcycles | Storage Tote on Sunday, and Superhero Popsicle Stick Bookmark on Monday.


Ad:


Sunday is a day for LSNC with Nature Storytime – Big Earth Little Me and Fireside Fun – A Good Old-fashioned Campfire Circle.

Be sure to check our list of School Break Camps with options for both Friday and Monday.

    Looking Forward to Next Week

    Personally, my goal for this week is for the kids to be in school Tuesday-Friday. Do you even want to hear that there is 1-3″ in the forecast for Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. Could school possibly be cancelled for a 5th Wednesday in a row? Hopefully the forecast improves and we have no snow days next week!
