It’s President’s Day weekend, the kids are out of school and it’s going to be a wet weekend. Instead of being disappointed that you won’t be able to enjoy the great outdoors, check out some of the fantastic indoor activities you can do with your kiddos. Here are three events or activities you may want to check out this weekend.
1. Hands on History at Sutter’s Fort. Ok…so this one may not keep you completely dry, but it is worth it, I promise. The fort’s Hands on History: By Land and By Sea will take you back in time to the 1840s. Visitors will learn about the two ways emigrants came to California, the challenges they faced and what daily life was like when they arrived. Enjoy the fort in its re-enactment of its glory days, experience hands-on activities like packing a wagon, weaving rope, tying knots, creating maps and marching in the drum corps, and more. This is a fabulously fun and education experience for your whole family. Sutter’s Fort
2. Live Free: California Motorcycle Culture at the California Automobile Museum. Been to Sacramento’s auto museum lately? If not, you’ll want to get out there by Saturday, Feb. 19 to see the California Motorcycle Culture exhibit before it leaves. Learn about the first motorcycles and see how they have evolved over the years. If you’ve got a motorcycle lover in your house, you won’t want to miss this exhibit. California Automobile Museum
3. Junior Engineer training at the California State Railroad Museum. Head on down to the railroad museum this weekend and let your kids earn their Junior Engineer award. Download this pamphlet before you go and then set your kids free to complete the tasks and activities inside. Once they finish the packet and take the Junior Engineer Pledge, they are all set to help the hundreds of volunteers who protect and care for our California State Parks.
