Best Things to Do Christmas Weekend In Washington DC with Kids

We don't have to remind you what's coming next week. Hopefully, the tree is decorated, the packages are wrapped, and your Christsmas travel plans have all been made.

Assuming you have some free time this weekend, the Washington DC area is just brimming with things to do on the weekend before Christmas. Usher in Hanukkah with a holiday skate in Arlington; thrill to the beat of a holiday musical performance in DC; or perhaps enjoy a holiday breakfast and photo-op with St. Nick in Sterling, Va.

Whatever you do, have a merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, and more from your friends at Mommy Poppins. 

It's hard to escape holiday-themed entertainment this time of year, but if you'd like to, why not take part in a Saturday art experiment or a Sunday morning nature walk, or enjoy a visit to the Capitol.

As always, see our holiday roundups for the best seasonal entertainment in the DC area. And remember, our events calendar is loaded with fun, family events right through New Year's Day.
