Make the most of your upcoming weekend, and plan for one (or more!) of these fun activities!
Eat Out (Way Out)
Choose an exotic cuisine that your children haven't tried, such as Thai or Portuguese. Find the country on a globe or a map, and read a short encyclopedia or Internet introduction to that nation's culture. Go to the restaurant early, before the evening rush begins, so your kids can really take in the atmosphere.

Toddlers can mess around in the dirt or pull up weeds (with supervision), and older kids can plant seeds and bulbs at flower beds near your house. Another option is to help out at one of the many animal-rescue organizations, or take your kids to visit the elderly at a retirement home.
Check out the Stars
Buy a star chart to get started. Then choose one spot in your yard that affords a clear view of the heavens, and venture out after dinner to watch how the night sky changes hour to hour and day to day. A little fresh air before bedtime can really help your kids sleep later too.
Watch a cartoon
«The secret life of pets» premier is a super funny family cartoon about a terrier named Max, whose quiet life is upended when his owner takes in Duke, a stray, who Max instantly dislikes. They have to put their quarrels behind when they find out that an adorable white bunny named Snowball is building an army of lost pets determined to take revenge
Watch the cartoon at major Kiev’s cinemas from August 4th, 2016.
Plan a Treasure Hunt

On your own, plant little dime-store jewels and treasures in the garden. Then draw up a map with directions. (For an ancient look, let some coffee soak into the map to brown it with age; while the paper is wet, rip it around the edges).
You can even hide the map somewhere in the house and let the kids find it while making the bed or putting away toys.
Kids especially love making pie crusts, biscuits, and pizza, because they can squish the dough with their fingers. Watching yeasty dough rise and then punching it down is especially entertaining.
