Weekend Fun: Soccer, Slime, and a FunFest; Jul 13-14

Nothing says summer more than being outdoors, eating awesome food, and just plain having fun. In Boston, we're lucky enough to have these options all summer long, and many are kid-friendly. This weekend, budding chefs can learn the fine art of pasta making or eat as much pizza as they can eat. The annual, WGBH FunFest is back, along with one of our picks for summer art-themed events. Young scientists can get up close with some creepy crawlies or learn how to create slime "ice cream." Sports lovers won't want to miss this all-weekend tournament (with a special event on Sunday just for kids).  

Also on Mommy Poppins this week:
