Looking for something to do with the kids this weekend? Here are a few ideas from Red Tricycle:
The Great American Backyard Campout Turn off the televisions, computers and cell phones to connect with nature, family and friends. The Campout is a national, overnight event that encourages everyone to spend the night in their own backyard. Even the most dedicated glamper can manage that! Sat., Sundown. Your own backyard (or anywhere else you want to camp out!). Free. All ages. Details.
The Amazing Bubbleman There’s plenty of audience participation and enough spellbinding bubble tricks to keep every kiddo (and grown up) mesmerized: square bubbles, bubbles inside bubbles, fog-filled bubbles, giant bubbles, bubble volcanoes and even people inside bubbles. Sat & Sun. at 11 a.m. & 1 p.m. Santa Monica. $20-$25. All ages. Event details.
Stuffed Animal Portraits Kids love their stuffed animals almost as much as they love you! Get a free portrait of their favorite stuffed animal by author and illustrator Salina Yoon after a reading of her new book, “Found.” Sat., 10:30 a.m. – 11:15 p.m West LA. Free. Ages 3-6. Event details.
See “Frozen” on the Pier It’s everyone’s favorite movie (OK, you’re sick of it – we are too – but it makes the kids soooo happy). On the pier, under the stars. Olaf would love this beachy way to kick off a summer weekend. Fri., Dusk. Redondo Beach. Free. Ages 3 and up. Event details.
Pirate Invasion and Mermaid Festival Sword fights, treasure hunts, a kid’s costume contest, live music and even a pirate food court: this festival is perfect for your baby buccaneer! There’s also a Mermaid village for those who prefer to be ‘under the sea.’ Sat. & Sun., 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Long Beach. Free admission. All ages. Event details.
