Grab & Go Kids Planner: Hobby Shows, Acrobats and Barnyard Animals

Here are five ways to have fun with your kids this weekend in Scarsdale and the surrounding Westchester County area.

The “Grab & Go Kids Planner” will be now appearing every Wednesday, just in time for you to take a brief mid-week breather and start thinking ahead towards the upcoming weekend. The planner will include local, low-cost activities, along with the occasional far-flung, pricier, but oh-so-worth it city sojourn.

Help Scarsdale Patch with the weekly planner by e-mailing kirstin.fawcett@patch.com, or by leaving your own suggestions or tips in the comment box. Is your business planning a Spring Fling family festival? Does a local museum hold educational reenactments that will transform even the most ardent World of Warcraft tot into a budding Revolutionary War scholar? We want to hear from you!
