The holiday season is officially over and it is now 2017. You might be worried that there isn’t as much to do now that the holidays are over. Even though there isn’t as much going on, there are still opportunities to get out there and have fun this weekend in Orlando with the kids.


If your kids enjoyed ice skating over the holidays, there is still a chance to take to the ice in Winter Park Village. Kids can also learn to skate, on wheels, over at Astro Skate; they are offering a lesson plus stay and play afterwards to practice what you learned. All ages are welcome, so you too momma can strap on a pair.

If you are looking to expose the kids to something cultural this weekend, the Orlando Symphony will present one of its Symphony Storytime series for younger kids, helping to introduce them to the world of classical music by combining them with stories. For those with a Bank of America card, both Mennello Museum and Orlando Museum of Art are offering free entry as part of the Museums on Us program. Orlando Museum of Art is also holding a Family Highlights tour to introduce kids to some of the works in their collection. Admission to the Orlando Science Center is also free this weekend with a Bank of America card.

If your kids are into creating art, then sign them up for a Saturday Art Encounters workshop at the Orlando Museum of Art. This month, they will be working on creating learning painting techniques which will help to elevate your refrigerator art work.

Older kids will enjoy Laser Weekend at the Planetarium, Glow-in-the-dark jumping at Sky Zone or Harry Houdini’s Hidden Magic Show.

This Saturday is the last day of Light up UCF, so if you were too busy to make it over the holidays, here is your chance. If you already went, nobody is judging you if you want to go again.
