Jun 26, 2018 01:25PM ● By Ashley Madonna

Whether your kid is a master chef in training or an aspiring architect, there's an event for them this weekend that will spark their imagination. This weekend, let your creative little ones test their skills at one of these five fun family-friendly activities. 

"Mamma Mia!" At The Palace Arts Center

Before the hit blockbuster full of ABBA hits sings “Here We Go Again” with its upcoming sequel, see the 2008 film at The Palace Arts Center on Friday. This fun musical will keep your toes tapping all the way through. And you can make a whole family-friendly night out of it by grabbing dinner at any Grapevine restaurant before the show to receive free popcorn from the concession stand – just be sure to keep the receipt.  

Red, White & Blue Cupcakes Workshop

Get your kids in the mood to celebrate all things red, white and blue by stopping by Taste Buds Kitchen’s cupcake workshop on Saturday. Kids ages 5 to 8, with their caregiver, will create colorful sweets that are bursting with flavor. And with fun decorations on top, they are the perfect treat for your Fourth of July. Tickets are $28 per child, and spots are limited, so reserve your spot sooner rather than later. 

Dallas CASA Parade of Playhouses

This weekend kicks off the 23rd annual Dallas CASA Parade of Playhouses, a NorthPark Center display of whimsical playhouses to benefit abused and neglected children. A variety of designers and builders joined together to create these extraordinary homes that will be raffled off to raise funds for Dallas CASA. Your kids will love walking around the different models and seeing their different designs. And, you may even walk away with one if you buy a raffle ticket – available for $5 each. 

Dallas Children’s Theater presents “How I Became a Pirate”

Get ready to set sail on a musical adventure with Jeremy Jacobs and his pirate friends with Dallas Children’s Theater’s presentation of “How I Became a Pirate.” This whimsical story will teach your kids about following their own path and will fill them with a sense of adventure. Whether you come out on opening night on Saturday or check out one of their DCT sensory-friendly performances, everyone will fall in love with these characters.

Kimball Kids Drop-In Studio

This Saturday, The Kimbell Art Museum is inviting all children ages 12 and younger and their adult companions to come out and get creative at their drop-in sessions. Each class will allow guests to enjoy a gallery activity and a related art project. It’s the best way to enjoy a day indoors while letting your kids’ imaginations run wild. Space is limited, and sign-ups are available one hour prior to the program, so be sure to get there early!
