5 Things for Families

ATTENTION: Mr. Steve is coming to town. Mister. Steve. Here. (And some other stuff is happening, too.)

1. ADHD: Paths to Success

It’s the middle of July which means it’s almost August which means OMG school will be starting before we know it. Back-to-school anxiety, I imagine, can be more pronounced if your kid has an ADHD diagnosis. This workshop will explore how symptoms can affect education while also offering instruction on teaching organizational skills to your child and tips for positive communication between home and school.

  • Thursday, July 17th • 6:30 — 8:00 PM
  • Children’s Museum of Richmond-Central, 2626 W. Broad Street
  • $30

2. Frozen Party

Games, music, frozen treats, probably repeat sing-alongs to “Let It Go.” While they’re not required, costume are welcome. Glitter, however, is not. (Seriously, click on the link, it actually says that.)

  • Friday, July 18th • 4:00 — 5:30 PM
  • Romp ‘n Roll — Midlothian, 11541 Busy Street
  • $15 for members, $20 for non-members

3. Mr. Steve is Coming to Town

You know that guy who sings to kids in between shows on PBS in the morning? This is him, and all kids love him. He’s coming to Richmond this week. Oh and Clifford the Big Red Dog is coming along, too, NBD.

  • Friday, July 18th • 6:30 PM and Saturday, July 19th • 1:00 PM
  • The Community Ideas Station, 23 Sesame Street (for real)
  • $5

4. Sweet Corn Festival

If your house is anything like ours, corn is probably viewed solely as a vehicle for butter and salt. Help your kids learn that it’s actually a plant that grows out of the ground–and enjoy free hayrides and live music while you’re at it.

  • Saturday, July 19th • 10:00 AM — 4:30 PM
  • Gallmeyer Farms Pumpkin Patch, 4506 Millers Lane
  • Free admission

5. Sensory Friendly Screening of Rio 2

I love this. Join The Autism Society of Virginia for a sensory friendly (i.e. lights up, sound down) screening of Rio 2.

  • Saturday, July 19th • 2:00 PM (box office opens at 1:30 PM)
  • The Byrd Theatre, 2908 W. Cary Street
  • $1.99
