Arbor Annie’s Spring Break Picks March 25-29

It’s Spring Break and Arbor Annie has the best events for the week plus additional activity ideas to help you enjoy a staycation if you’re at home this week. Even if the kids are in camp and you’re at work, with most activities cancelled this week maybe you can enjoy some extra fun in the evenings.

Arbor Annie's Spring Break Picks

Arbor Annie’s Spring Break Picks

The Ann Arbor District Library leads the way with events during spring break week. They have several great events this week. They have STEM events, Storytimes, and Crafts. Some of the highlights are Pom Pom PartyFamily Reading & Science Program: Life in the Next FrontierSecret CodesMission to Mars, and Walkalong Gliders.

On Thursday and Friday, stock up on reading material and other books for the family at our sponsor, the JLC Booksale. The way my daughter goes through books, $1/book is a great deal.

Beyond the calendar activities, it’s a great week for a day trip or other fun activities:

    Dumbo opens on Friday with showings starting on Thursday evening. I am not sure if we’ll get to it on Thursday night, but it’s on my list to see. From the trailers it seems a bit dark, so I recommend caution with younger or sensitive children.

    Wonder Park opened a couple of weekends ago. It’s had mixed reviews, and my daughter vetoed seeing it over spring break.

    Captain Marvel continues its strong run. We saw it opening weekend. Be sure to check out our review and parental guidance suggestions. Maybe we’ll go see it a second time over break.

    Quality 16’s Free Morning Movies series continues on Friday with Hotel Transylvania 3.
