This time of year is filled with mixed emotions. Those that enjoy the freedom of summer with its lack of schedule are sad to see it go. But many parents (and some kids) are ready for the school year to return. As summer slowly comes to a close, make the week ahead memorable with the amazing experiences found in our events calendar.
Music lovers have many options. Learn how to play a ukulele at Fumo Library or listen to the sweet strum of the guitar at Wissahickon Library. Check out a drop-in class with Music Monkey Jungle at Old Pine Community Center, The Children's Boutique, Momo's Treehouse, or Tildie's Toy Box. Rock out at a concert at Philadelphia City Institute's Summer Concert Series, Penn Museum's Summer Nights Concert, or The Market at DelVal's Wine Concert.
Kids interested in science and nature can wander through the Enchanted Woods at Winterthur, explore the exhibits at the Delaware Museum of Natural History during its last Two Dollar Tuesday event, and be mesmerized by the fountain shows at Longwood Gardens. Don't forget to stop by Tyler Arboretum to say goodbye to the Big Bugs exhibit which concludes Tuesday. Save some time to chill out with a movie at Queen Memorial Library, The Colonial Theatre, or FDR Park.
Since September is just around the corner, be sure to plan a month full of fun with new, interesting, and unusual experiences. For now, keep reading and make it a great week!
