Can't Miss Weekend Picks

BUGS: Creepy, crawly… and cute? That’s your decision. Take the family out for a day at the Insectarium in Philly on Sat. and cast your ballots for which bug in the collection should be crowned favorite baby insect as part of Family Favorite Bug Day. All the baby insects featured will be phasmids (stick, ghost or leaf bugs) and counting on your votes.

 

BIRDS: The superstars you’ll meet at Adventure Aquarium’s Celebrity Penguin Weekend in Camden, NJ, Sat. and Sun. bring a whole new level of cute to the table. 2013’s ‘It-Penguin,’ Cassie, passes the torch during the public debut of penguin chick siblings, Pumpkin and Patch, who hatched in Oct. See these celebs up close and even get a penguin photo op.

 

ZOO ANIMALS: Grab your sketchbooks, pencils and erasers and take the family to the Brandywine Zoo in Wilmington, DE on Sat. for the Art in the Ark: Drawing and Sketching in the Zoo workshop. Kids 9 and older, along with their parents, will learn basic drawing skills and move around the zoo before it opens to the public to sketch live exhibit animals.


Other Events the Kids Will Love

  • Celebrate the Abington Art Center in Jenkintown, PA, at its 75th Birthday Bash on Sat. with cake, snacks, gallery tours and crafts.
