Free Weekend Family Fun: Children's World of Play

Hey Science Time friends and families,

Queen City FencingMy family and I will be at Children's World of Play Saturday, May 3.  This is a great, free, family event going on at Imaginon and 7th Street Market.

We will be supporting Queen City Fencing and Coach Sean Bates.  There will be fencing demonstrations and Q&A.  Stop by, say hello and check out an Olympic sport.  My kids love fencing with Coach Sean. 

Southern Girls Regional Chess Championship will also be there providing a great chance to expose your kids to a wonderful, portable game.  Our family has recently gotten in to chess and now we don't leave home without our travel set.  

Here are some of the other things you can do there: 
  • Craft a Greek mask
  • Fold a Japanese origami animal
  • Enjoy face painting
  • Listen to a storyteller from Latin America
  • Delight in a magic act
  • Make an alphabet bracelet
  • Learn Chinese calligraphy
  • Watch a martial arts demonstration from Korea
  • Learn to Zumba
  • Giggle at an Indonesian puppet show
  • Go on a scavenger hunt
  • Learn to say hello in another language
For more information go to the International House: Children's World of Play site at

The Light Rail line ends at Imaginon so the kids and I will be hopping on, fencing gear and all, at the Pineville Station.  Taking a train makes it extra special, right?
