How are you and your family spending this week off? (Assuming you get a week off, of course!) Since many families have working parents, they use Spring Break as a “stay-cation” instead of a vacation. We’ve got the down-low on what’s happening in Central Arkansas this week!
At the Arkansas Arts Center, their newest play, If You Take a Mouse to School is showing a daily matinee at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are just $11 for children, $14 for adults. If your kids like the “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” books, they will LOVE this play based on the same characters. Call 372-4000 or visit ararts.com for more information.
State parks all over Arkansas have special nature programs and guided hikes to get your family up and moving this week, not sitting on the couch. Check out www.arkansasstateparks.com for an easy to use, searchable calendar to find the closest parks to you and see what’s going on daily.
The Clinton Center downtown has free activities daily from 10 a.m. -2 p.m. in the Garden Room. Crafts, history, fun and more! These activities are free, but if you want to go through the museum, regular admission applies. The Center is located at 1200 President Clinton Avenue, Little Rock. Call (501) 374-4242 for more information.
Heifer Village, right next to the Clinton Center, also has educational activities this week. There will be exhibit hunts, crafts, and more! As kids play and learn in Heifer’s campus, they will learn about the message of global hunger and how to care for our planet. Programs run daily from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Call (800) 422-0474 for more information.
We’ll be back tomorrow with even more suggestions for spring break fun!
