The Week in PreView March 19-25th 2012

Happy Sunday!! Here’s your list of kid-friendly Prince William County events for this week!  There’s lots more on our calendar, too!

One of our favorite library events, Lunch Bunch, happens once a month at the Chinn Park Library at 12pm.  Pack a lunch for your munchkins and head over to see Squirt the turtle and listen to stories while you nosh!  After, if there aren’t preschool classes out, you can play on the playground adjacent to the Chinn Center right next door!

In the evening, Jump N Jimmy’s will be holding a fundraiser for the Kolos Family to support a medical crisis in their family.  Bounce between 5pm-8pm for $10, and while the kids bounce, you can shop with local HBB’s who are donating a percentage of their sales to the Kolos’, too. 

Tuesday is the first day of spring, and Rita’s Italian Ice shops will be offering a free regular ice to each customer in honor of the start of the season!!  It appears all stores will be participating.

It’s Toddler Tuesday at the Manassas Museum! This program offer toddlers and their caregivers an opportunity to enjoy music, story-telling and crafts, and include a special take-home surprise. Prior registration is encouraged as space is limited, and is $10 per child.

There is a 7pm-8pm HOPE meeting for parents who have lost children this Tuesday, as well.

I’m not going to lie, I feel like Wednesday is library story day and that’s about it.  The weather is getting nice, though, so why not check out a local park or playground? We’ve got some great reviews here!  Do you know of an event missing from our Wednesday calendar? We’d love to hear about it!!

Be sure to check out our list of Easter events in the county and surrounding areas!! If you live in Triangle or Quantico, today is the day to register for the Stafford Parks and Rec programs!  You’ll also want to call ahead if you’re wanting to attend this weekend’s Egg Hunts at Pump it Up Manassas!

Live on the other edge of the county? Princess Genevieve will be at the Warrenton Chick Fil A for Family Night! A little closer in, it’s also CFA Famly night at the Signal Hill Location.

From 5pm-9pm, you child gets $1 off each game at Laser Quest Woodbridge with their student ID! This would be a fun one for your older children.  

Younger kids (or the non fake shooting inclined) may prefer to head to the Manassas Park Community Center for their Lego Challenge night from 7-8pm.

It’s time to shop for spring!! St. Paul UMC and Old Bridge UMC’s Preschools will both be hosting consignment sales at their respective locations.

This Saturday there’s also a few fun low-cost events (Build and Grow and The Knack) but if you’ve got some wiggle room in your budget and a girl, call ahead and reserve a space at the Rippon Lodge American Girl Tea! $25 per person, girls must be 5 or older. 703-499-9812.

Central Park Funland in Fredericksburg will host their annual Spring Fling, 4 hour wristbands starting at $20, Face painting, Buzzy from B101.5 on site.  It’s a drive, but for the price and special activities could be a worthwhile Sunday excursion.
