Austin Kids Recommeded – June 1 – 7

Welcome to Austin’s tiniest kids’ calendar with just a few carefully selected activities during the coming week, usually hiking, music and art-related.

But, before we get started, I want to welcome a new sponsor,Teresa’s Tidy-Up, a professional and affordable maid service in Southwest Austin. I started back to work full-time recently and if I didn’t have help to clean the house, it would all fall apart. Teresa is a Mom and an entrepreneur. She is also pretty-darn good at making a house sparkle, so when you walk in the door, you can’t help but smile.

I love that the Beatles wrote “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” AND “Why Don’t We Do It In the Road.” The Eggmen are a Beatles cover band and they keep it pretty clean at Jovita’s. There is a cover charge, $8 for adults and $5 for kids, which isn’t my favorite, but they have one of the most kid-friendly dance floors in town, so it is worth it.

Ballet Under the Stars at Zilker Hillside Theater
Friday and Saturday, June 1-2, 8:30 pm
I love Dance because Dance is art that moves and instead of a person painting a picture, the dancer is the picture and every performance is an original. Zilker Park and Barton Springs make for a great background. Show up early for a swim or to ride the Zilker Zephyr, a mini-train so cool it has its own Facebook page.

Insect Safari, ages 6+ only
Sunday, June 3, 8:00am-11am
This is a turbo-hike, with an expert entomologist and her bag of tools to find, measure and identify insects and spiders that live all around us. This is a guided hike along Bear Creek, one of the city’s Water Quality Protection Lands. Thanks to Rose Ann for the tip.

    Austin bike zoo is doing a cool rendition of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream on bikes. It is 7:30-9:30, but it’s free in the park (bring food or drink if you lke, a blanket, and donations are appreciated). I went last night, it was fun and there were lots of kiddos around.
