Don’t Miss This
Spring is almost here, I personally cannot wait. There is a lot coming up in the next few months, we don’t want you to miss a thing. Here are a few Metro Detroit family events, places to play and things to do that you don’t want to miss.
1. The Robot Garage
As one of our newest sponsors, we wanted to take a moment to say thank you and highlight some of the great programs they offer. The Robot Garage provides a hands-on experience with robots and Lego that is truly unique. The Robot Garage offers a wide variety of services from birthday parties, classes, workshops, camps, kid’s night, drop-in play, and much more.
2. Homeschool Week at Sea Life Michigan and Legoland Michigan
Starting April 8th through the 12th, homeschooling families can purchase tickets to either Sea Life in Michigan or Legoland Michigan for just $10 per person. This offer is available from 10 am to 1 pm daily. Both Merlin Entertainment venues offer extended learning opportunities during this special week. It’s the perfect time for families to check out either at a steeply discounted rate.
3. My Current Obsession: Hamilton
Broadway in Detroit is currently in the midst of a six-week engagement of HAMILTON at Detroit’s Fisher Theatre that will end on April 21, 2019. Tickets for this engagement of HAMILTON are still available through Ticketmaster, the sole, authorized ticketing agent for Broadway In Detroit. Safe Ticket Buying Tips for HAMILTON in Detroit If purchasing tickets at retail is outside of your budget, you can also try to win a chance to purchase Hamilton tickets for just $10 in digital lottery!!!
If you aren’t familiar with the music, I highly recommend that you listen to it before you attend. The singing is fast-paced and you will likely miss a lot if you haven’t heard it before.

4. The weather is warming: Let’s Get Outside
Fellow Metro Detroit Mom, Ginny, is the founder of a fantastic website, 1000 Hours Outside. Her family, including her husband and five children ages ten and under, set a goal of spending 1000 hours outside every year. You might think that this goal is unattainable, however, when you compare it to the average 1,200 hours average screen time, it becomes much more plausible.
So, let’s get outside. We have so many great resources, visit a Southeast Michigan Nature Center or a local Park. We love visiting the Detroit Zoo in the spring too. Spring is also a great time to visit a local farm, chances are you will get to see newborn farm animals. Upland Hills and Maybury Farm are two of our favorite metro Detroit farms. If you are up for a road trip, check out the Whiting Forest in Midland, which hosts the longest canopy walk in the United States.
5. Peppa Pig World Of Play Opens
Entertainment One (eOne) and Merlin Entertainments plc (Merlin) will open the second U.S. Peppa Pig World of Play indoor attraction at Great Lakes Crossing Outlets in Michigan on Tuesday, April 9 at 10 a.m. Visitors will get a first look at the unique immersive play experience based on eOne’s much-loved animated series.
