The weather this week is a bit more summer like than the weekend. Temperatures are back to the 70s and there is a bit less rain in the forecast.

Top of the Park continues this week (except for Monday). Be sure to check out our Top of the Park Kids Guide for the daily schedule, tips for attending, and more. This week’s Kid Zone activites are Origami, Calligraphy, Puppets, and More on Tuesday, the popular Mo Willems series Elephant and Piggie Series on Wednesday, Japan Week: Games from Around the World on Thursday, and Around the World with American Field Service.

On Wednesday the Ann Arbor Jaycees Carnival starts. It’s an annual tradition for us to attend. They are hosting us this year so that we can share all of the fun with you. Be on the lookout for our roundup and a video walkthrough.

Ann Arbor Jaycees Carnival

Lots of summer event series start this week. Matthaei Botanical Gardens starts their Summer Children’s Garden Pop-Ups on Monday. Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum is doing a Summer of Space and also adding extra workshops. The Ann Arbor District Library has a full slate of fun events all week long.

Strawberry picking should still be great this week. I am hoping to get out one day this week.

Ann Arbor Strawberry PickingI enjoyed the Peony Garden last week, but couldn’t get my daughter to visit on Friday afternoon. She has a cold on top of allergies so she didn’t want to make the allergies worse.

Arb Peony Garden - Pink Peonies

It is also Japan Week. There are several fun events all week. Last year my daughter enjoyed Japan Week: Japanese Video Games which is on Monday. Other good choices are Japan Week: Family Art Studio: The Six Senses of Buddhism on Thursday plus the Center for Japanese Studies has the KidsZone Tent at Top of the Park.

Summer Movie Series continue this week at Quality 16 and Emagine plus the Cinemark series starts. Quality 16 is showing Smallfoot (Monday-Friday). Emagine is showing Despicable Me (Wednesday & Thursday) and Cinemark is showing The Grinch (Tuesday).

Summer Movie Clubhouse - Dollar Movies at Cinemark

The local pools, water parks, and spray grounds are open regular hours this week – pending the weather. If you have little ones, the Tot Splashes are a great time to visit.
