Let the Games Begin!

Looking for something interesting to share with your kids this weekend? The 2010 Winter Olympic Games begin with the opening ceremony tonight at 6:30 pm on NBC, channel 5. The opening ceremony can be a really fun experience, and you can make it educational as well. Come to the library and check out one of our world atlases. Then, as each country is called to enter the stadium, have the kids find it on the atlas. Make it a contest to see who can find the country first!

Another fun activity for this weekend is to go Ice Skating. If you already have skates, head to Lake Opeka where they have a man-made rink already set up! If you don't already have skates and are feeling adventurous, you can always head downtown to Millennium Park where they have skate rentals and lots of hot chocolate for when you get cold. Sunday afternoon at 3:30 is when Olympic Ice Skating starts, so have your own fun and then sit down to watch some of the world's best ice skaters.

If you are looking for the entire Olympic Line-up, look here, and remember to have lots of fun this weekend.
