5 Things for Families

Don’t you just love Richmond in the fall?

1. Busy Hands Craft

Preschoolers (ages three to five) are invited to head over to the Gayton Library to make Thanksgiving place cards. This sounds super adorable…I really hope hand turkeys are involved.

  • Wednesday, November 12th • 4:00 PM
  • Gayton Library, 10600 Gayton Road
  • Free!

2. Happy in Two Homes

OK, this event probably won’t be tons of fun, but I can pretty much guarantee it’ll be all kinds of helpful. Find out how you and your co-parent can best help your kids adapt to life split between two homes and get tips on communicating in ways that minimize conflict for everyone.

  • Thursday, November 13th • 12:00 — 1:00 PM
  • Children’s Museum — Short Pump, 2200 Old Brick Road
  • $25

3. Richmond Fall Classic Gymnastics Meet

Catch the 2014-2015 gymnastic season opener featuring gymnasts from all levels from all over the state. Related: I was semi-convinced I had a chance to become an Olympic gymnast until I was about 15. Why spare your children from such delusions?

  • Saturday, November 15th • 8:00 AM — 5:00 PM
  • U-Turn Sports Complex, 2101 Maywill Street
  • $12

4. Richmond Indigenous Gourd Orchestra

I realize I promoted an event featuring the Richmond Indigenous Gourd Orchestra (or, as I like to call them, RIGO) a couple weeks ago, but I can’t help myself. They play friggin’ gourds, for Pete’s sake! Gourds grown locally! I’m only human!

  • Saturday, November 15th • 10:00 AM
  • Gottwald Playhouse at CenterStage, 600 E. Grace Street
  • $6-$10

5. TEDxYouth@RVA

It’s the TED you know and love, but with a Richmond and youth focus. Come watch the young folk explore the theme “Worlds Imagined,” hear from incredible local speakers, and enjoy some free food, music, and entertainment.

  • Saturday, November 15th • 6:30 PM
  • Oates Theater at Collegiate School, 279 N. Mooreland Road
  • Free!
