Activities To Get You Out of the House This Weekend: Passover, Egg Hunts, Art of the Brick

Like a butterfly at the Natural History Museum, LA is emerging from its stasis. Something new is reopening almost every day. (Seriously, keep checking our calendar, as there are a slew of openings in April, and we're tracking them all.) As each world-class museum, theme park, and zoo opens, we can rediscover them—without pesky tourists. Also, we're heading into the spring holidays: Passover is this weekend and Easter is hopping into town right behind it, bringing plenty of egg hunts and bunny brunches.

Not ready to venture out just yet? WonderCon goes virtual, serving up all of the geek cred with none of the crowds. Same with this year's PaleyFest LA. Or pull up a front row (couch) seat for a new series based on the Mighty Ducks, a fiery flick from the Octonauts, or a mighty showdown between the king of the monsters and the king of the beasts.

If it's at-home enrichment you want, Poppins@Home has amazing new content, like a transportation-themed virtual Spring Recess Camp, a virtual hip hop dance class, and bilingual music from 123 Andres.

Did I mention free donuts? Our cups runneth over. (With coffee, which is also free.)

While we are trying to promote safer activities that occur outdoors or with social distancing guidelines in place, please keep your family and others safe by always wearing a mask and maintaining an appropriate distance. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our Event Calendar to find something else to do.
