Grab & Go Kids Planner: Irish Trinkets, Retro Toys and Wild Redheads
Play around with our family picks for the week, including childhood classics brought to life, an exhibit of toys from the 1950s and St. Patty's craft fun.
Are you looking for something to do that's fun for the whole family or will entertain the kids awhile? We've got events scheduled throughout the week to quench your thirst for crafts, entertainment and more.
A LITTLE IRISH TRINKET
Where/When: Marvin Blank Senior Citizens Center, 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, March 16.
Why Go: Let's face it: We're not going to be finding any clover, four-leaf or otherwise, anytime soon after the winter we've been having. So stop in and celebrate St. Patrick's Day a wee bit early with a fun craft project: a gold and green bracelet made of beads and crystals.
Pricing: $15 for Macomb Township residents, $20 for nonresidents.
THE 'TRAIL YOU LEAVE IN INK'
Where/When: Clinton-Macomb Public Library, 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 16.
Why Go: Have you ever wondered what your handwriting says about you? Here's your chance to find out as handwriting analyst Ruth Elliot Holmes will be at the library to enlighten you. Holmes will also have handwriting samples from famous and infamous folk for analysis and discussion.
Pricing: Free. Call 586-226-5040 to register.
TOYS OF THE 1950s
Where/When: Lorenzo Cultural Center, 1:30-3:30 p.m. Saturday, March 19.
Why Go: This exhibit, part of the Lorenzo Center's 1950s show, should be a fun and informative event for the whole family. The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum will be on-site showing "The Science of Toys" and families can enjoy nine interactive activities that afternoon.
