Weekends r 4 Kids: The Trains are Coming!

43rd Annual Atlanta Train Show
This was such a hit last time I took my boys! This is an expo for model train collectors, sellers, and buyers – but in the back there are maybe a dozen large train exhibits – that are kid friendly. Some are even remote-controlled and the kids can try them out! It seems mundane – but my boys LOVE it. They talked about it for days afterwards.  I also like it because children under 12 get in FREE!

Second Sunday Funday
We went to this last month and it was a different twist to a hot, lazy Sunday.  My boys weren’t so interested in the art exhibit, although I was. But they love the hands-on exhibits and art projects. This month, in addition to seeing the Picturing the South art, young patrons will create a “digital self-portrait and a unique photo transfer using blender pens and photocopies.” To get more information, click here.


National Water Gun FIGHT Day!

This is being promoted as a family fun event… but – as the national website puts it – Don’t leave your house without your strap!

For your WATER gun that is! This Saturday is National Water Gun Fight Day which gives kids of all ages permission to blast whomever, whenever with a water gun. 

In Atlanta, there will be an ‘organized’ event held at Freedom Parkway with family activities, giveaways and prizes. I mean, one of the sponsors is GoGo Sqeez Applesauce – so I guess  younger kids will be attending.

It’ll be at Freedom Parkway from noon – 5pm. Check the website first because there is a registration fee ($1) and other particulars.
