Weekend Family Fun For April 6-8th

Not only is it Easter Weekend, but this fabulous spring weather is suppose to stick around for the next several days!  If you are looking for Easter or spring related activities, you will have a long list to choose from (For a more comprehensive list of Easter activities, click here.)  If you are looking for non-easter activities, you’ll find plenty of those too.  Here are some of our favorites…have a good one!

4/7   Egg-cellent Adventures at the Crocker Art Museum – Look at different kinds of eggs, from ancient giant emu egg carvings to sparkly Fabergé eggs. Spend time together decorating papier mâché eggs with paint, fabric, and beads, then have fun hunting for eggs in the E. Kendell Davis courtyard.  Noon to 1:30pm.

4/7   Easter Bonnet Promenade in Old Sacramento – The Historic Old Sacramento Foundation invites one and all to dress up in your favorite Easter finery – or other historic apparel – to celebrate in high style during the 17th Annual “Living History” Easter Bonnet Promenade!  Year after year, visitors of all ages come from near and far to take a leisurely one-hour stroll through the historic boardwalks and cobblestone streets of Old Sacramento.  Women tend to get all dolled up in fanciful dresses, lovely parasols or colorful hats while attire for the gentlemen might include top hats, frock coats, vests and trousers with a walking stick and watch fob (pocket watch) to complete the distinguished look. 

4/7   Build a window bird feeder at Home Depot – Kids can build a window bird feeder to observe wildlife.  They learn to build their very own bird feeder while learning tool safety, have fun, make friends and gain a sense of achievement  and work ethic.  9am to noon.

4/7   Kids Club hosts Magician Trevor Wyatt at the Arden Fair Mall – Arden Fair Kids Club is proud to welcome our favorite magician, Trevor Wyatt! He will chant the magic words, and poof!  Something magical will happen! 12 pm.

4/7  Dinosaur Eggstravaganza at the Discovery Museum – Looking for unusual eggs? The Discovery Museum has prehistoric egg fun for everyone! See dinosaur eggs in the Blast from the Past exhibit. In addition, a collection of bird eggs are on display in the classroom. Each child (age 12 and under) receives a plastic egg with a baby dinosaur inside. Today’s make-and-take activity is a paper Protoceratops egg.  Today only: Any child (ages 4-12) wearing a dinosaur shirt or costume receives $1 off admission.
