Whether you have budding farmers, musicians, entomologists or paleontologists, there’s an activity for you this weekend!
Get your little entomologists ready to grab their magnifying glasses and notebooks and fly down to the Academy of Natural Sciences at Drexel University this Saturday and Sunday. Activities include a bug yoga class where you can pose like a phasmid, a costume contest, bug clinic, scientist talks, a glorious rendition of “poop or bug?”, roach race and more. While you’re there, you can also check out the Animal Grossology exhibit in its final weeks.
No budding entomologists in your house? What about paleontologists? Whether you have a scientist or a musician/actor in the family, this show is sure to please. Dinosaur Musical is playing just outside of the city at the Players Club of Swarthmore on Saturday and Sunday at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. A coming-of-Jurassic-age show about Quincy, a 14-year-old Tyrannosaur with big shoes, err, footprints to fill.
YUM! If you’re out of the city checking out the Dinosaur Musical on Saturday, the Peach Festival at Linvilla Orchards won’t be too far away. Stop by and pick-your-own yummy in-season peaches, enjoy music with Makin’ Music, dress as your favorite Fairy Tale character, and dabble in crafts, games, and activities. 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Head over to Big Blue Marble Bookstore in Mt. Airy for a one day festival of books, arts, music, action heroes and dinosaurs. In addition to meeting some of your favorite authors, you can make-your-own action hero cape, learn to draw dinosaurs with one of the world’s top paleoartists and participate in a lego building contest. 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
