Christmastime is here! If your kids are restless waiting for Santa to come down the chimney, we have a few ideas how you can entertain them before the big day. Here are a few family-friendly events happening this weekend. 
 
Winter Solstice Sunrise Celebration
Revel in the start of the season with a morning of science. The Perot Museum is hosting a Winter Solstice Sunrise Celebration on Friday starting at 6 a.m. With a yoga session surrounded by dinosaurs, a sound-centered experience using singing bowls and other instruments in the Gems and Minerals Hall and a dance party in the museum’s lobby, there will be plenty of fun to be had while celebrating the solstice.
 
Breakfast With Santa At Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark
If your kids are tired of the colder weather, treat them to a day at the waterpark by heading over to Epic Waters in Grand Prairie. On Saturday at 8 a.m., the indoor facility is hosting Breakfast With Santa for all of their visitors. Kids can enjoy a meet and greet with the big guy and a breakfast buffet all while splashing away in the park.  
 
Artisan Children’s Theater presents: “Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas”
Does your daughter love Fancy Nancy? Let her experience the character in real life by reserving your spot at the Artisan Children’s Theater’s presentation of “Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas.” This production, based on the book written by Jane O’Connor, is a great way to treat your kids while also getting them excited about the holidays. Their last show is at 2 p.m. on Saturday, so be sure to grab your tickets early.
 
Animated Double Feature at Palace Theater
See some classic animated Christmas movies on the big screen at the Palace Theater’s animated double feature. Charlie Brown and The Grinch will play back-to-back starting at 4 p.m. on Saturday. Your kids are sure to laugh along to their jokes while also learning about the true meaning of Christmas.
 
“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”
Kids may know Santa’s most famous reindeer, but what about all of his friends? Treat your kids to a special presentation of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” this weekend by snagging tickets to the Grapevine show. The show finishes its run on Sunday at 2:30 p.m., so you have all weekend to be a part of the fun.
