Family Fun Activities in New Hampshire November 6-8

Why does Ariana always get grounded when there is so much cool stuff going on around the state??? We won't be enjoying these activities, but I hope someone else can...

First off, free is the best, right??? Tonight is Family Fun Night at the Children's Museum in Dover from 5:30-8pm with free admission for all! We have gone there and can honestly say it is blast for kids up to about 9 years old. Our 3 year old and her 3 year old cousin really enjoyed it.

Also free is the admission to Currier Museum of Art tomorrow, November 7, 10am-12noon.

For those music fans, Saturday, 10:30am at Baker Free Library in Bow you can catch:
Music in my Pockets: Family Fun in Folk Music (FREE)

At Border in Concord there is a Book Release of new kids book with Josh Judge
Saturday from 1:00pm - 2:00pm
The release of "Weather Facts and Fun," the new children's book on weather by WMUR TV-9 meteorologist Josh Judge and Kathe Cussen, will be held at Borders in Concord. Meet the authors, have your kids ask them about the weather and get an autographed copy of the book!
Free and open to the public!

Cats is playing through Nov 14 at Palace Theater in Manchester.

Cirque du Soleil is at the The Music Hall in Portsmouth on Friday and Saturday.

Something that most everyone in NH can make it to is the NH Open Doors Festival. Nov. 7 & 8 there will be dozens of participants around NH opening the door to creativity, adventure, relaxation and tax-free shopping. Let the scenic highways and country roads of New Hampshire take you to picturesque towns and roadside farm stands. Meet the talented artisans and craftspeople who are opening their studios to welcome you. Stroll through the shops and galleries filled with NH-made products and artwork. Savor the local cuisine. Sample the wines.
I might just go to the Concord participants to get a jump start on Christmas with some local goods. Check out the website, there is a lot to see.

If you and your family like to volunteer and give back to our great state, this Saturday is the second to last Beach Cleanup at 10:30am at Jenness Beach in Rye, NH.

I am not personally a fan of the American Girl conglomerate, but I know lots of people are so there is an American Girl Fashion Show at Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord this weekend:

For those of you near Amherst, Gymnastics Village is sponsoring Parents Night Out
Sat 11/07 from 6:00pm - 9:30pm. Leave the kids for $25 for 5 years and older and go on a much needed date.

Also in Amherst: Creature Feature, Saturday 2:00pm - 3:00pm at the Peabody Mill Environmental Center. This program is geared towards people of all ages who want to learn about and/or visit with local and exotic animals. Those brave enough might even get the chance to hold or touch the creatures. A different critter will be featured each session.

Charlie and The Chocolate Factory is playing Friday and Saturday in Epping at the Leddy Center.

Enjoy your weekend, the weather should be gorgeous!

  1. I would totally get a sitter for her if she's grounded and take the other two on an adventure! It will show her that she should follow the rules since you'll have fun without her.

    My mom did that once. We were on our way to the beach and my brother and I wouldn't stop fighting. We were half way there (already an hour into our drive) and she told us if we didn't stop she'd drop us off at my grandma's and go by herself. We didn't believe her, but that's exactly what happened! We never doubted her agian!

  2. Wish we were able to go to some of those great events. Em is still sick, she is finally feeling a bit better but I am going to talk to the school nurse before I send her back. I don't want her coughing her germs all over a bunch of healthy kids! Did you hear that there are kids out of PES with this flu?
