2019 Update – Election Day, May 7th is not a day off for Ann Arbor Public Schools since there is nothing on the ballot. Instead school was closed on Friday, February 15.
The weather is supposed to be great for today’s day off from school. We’ve got a few ideas to entertain you today. Plus, don’t forget to take a few minutes to vote today. There is an AAPS millage on the ballot.
The nice weather makes it a great day to visit a playground. Check out our Playground Profiles and find a new playground to explore. My daughter and I are planning to visit one or two new ones to add to the list.
Tuesday is the perfect day to visit Putterz. They offer all-you-can-play golf from opening at 2p until 5p for just $10. Plus you get 15 game room tokens.
Spring is the perfect time of year to visit the Matthaei Botanical Gardens (unless you have bad allergies like my daughter).
It’s also a great day for a hike. Check out 5 Family Friendly Ann Arbor Hikes as recommended by Hike it Baby (note that Leslie Science Center has day off camps today, so it may not be the best place for a hike).
Days off from school are a good day to enjoy lunch. Lunch is typically less expensive than dinner, so it’s always a great choice.
One of our family’s lunch recommendations is Totoro’s bento boxes. They are only available at lunch on weekdays, so we can only go over the summer, days off, and half-days (for a late lunch).
We spent the November Election Day at The Henry Ford Museum. My daughter loves exploring the museum.
Last year, SEA LIFE Michigan hosted my daughter an I on the May election day. Check out our profile of SEA LIFE Michigan at Great Lakes Crossing in Troy. I suggest pre-booking your tickets since I don’t know how many other schools are off today. Plus, you may be able to fill your child’s summer wardrobe at outlet prices.
Of course, our everyday indoor activities are a great choice today.

Don’t forget that Avengers: Infinity War is at the theater. A Tuesday matinee is typically a great price! Be sure to check our Parental Guidance before heading to the theater.
