During this May weekend, Philly parents can find many ways to spend quality family time together. For starters, there are quite a few springtime festivals to enjoy. Eat delicious Italian foods in South Philly, appreciate the beauty and splendor of the Asian culture in Franklin Square, nibble on strawberry treats at Peddlers' Village, delight in children's entertainment at Annenberg Center Live, or applaud children's authors and literature at Big Blue Bookstore's Literary Festival.
After festival fun, spend some one-on-one time making art at Exton Square Mall, learning about weather at Fairmount Water Works, or trying a mindfulness class at Ahimsa House. Or, consider stepping back in time to simpler days where children can learn how soap is made at Newlin Grist Mill, wool is spun at the Thompson-Neely House, and horseshoes are created at Merion Friends Meeting House.
