Our family likes to make the most of our weekends by getting out and doing fun things together as a family. Whether it’s something simple like a walk at a park in our neighborhood or going to a community event, it’s been a great way to reconnect as a family and spend some quality time together.
So I’ve been doing a little research to see what fun events are coming up this month and I thought I’d share it with you too. Take a look at the top 10 kid-friendly events going on in North Texas this month.
- Mary Poppins Jr. Live
With performances still running from March 1 through March 4th, there are still a few days to catch this great play. If you were a fan of the movie and would like to share the fun with your kiddos, then this play will be great for your whole family. Ticket prices are pretty reasonable too: Adults $14, Students and Seniors $10 and Children 9 and under $9. To get more info and to purchase tickets, visit https://getintotheact.org/.
