Bunnies, Baseball & Robots: Weekend With the Kids

Spring is finally hereā€”go out and play

Easter Eggstravaganza (Alexandria)
Saturday, head to Top Golf of Alexandria for the Easter Eggstravaganza from 10:30 to 1. Kids activities include egg hunts by age group, moon bounce, magic shows, games, prizes, and music. This event appeals to all ages.

Celebrate Robots With the Museum of American History
Saturday, head to the Museum of American History’s Spark! Lab to celebrate National Robotics Week. The Spark! Lab is the museum’s newest family-friendly hands-on center, and I’ve heard rave reviews about it. Kids can invent a robot’s arm, experiment with electronics, and play with ELECTRO, the lab’s robotic dog. Activities are held from 10 to 4.

Kids Spring Fling With the Bowie Baysox (Bowie)
Sunday at 11:45, the Bowie Baysox host the annual kids Spring Fling. Kids of all ages can participate in one of the largest egg hunts in the area, visit with the Easter Bunny, play games, and participate in kid-friendly activities until the afternoon game begins at 2. One of our readers tipped us off a few weeks ago that he thinks the Bowie games are the most kid-friendly baseball games in our area, so Sunday’s event seems like a great way to find out, and the weather (fingers crossed) should be great that day.

Sunday Fun Days at Imagination Stage (Bethesda)
Every Sunday through May 22, the ever-amazing Imagination Stage is hosting “Sunday Fun Days.” These hourlong workshops appeal to kids ages one to five, and each session centers around popular books, such as toddler favorites Are You My Mother? or If You Give a Pig a Pancake. The workshops are for parents and kids, and when Imagination Stage hosted them in the winter, I noticed they booked up fast (because I couldn’t get into any of them). Tickets are $10 each for kids and parents.
