Weekend Planner

Welcome to our weekly post that highlights things to do on the weekends as a family, with friends, or date night ideas. We'll share what we'll be doing each weekend, things to do at home or outdoors with the kids, and things to do in and around Des Moines, Iowa (where we live). A little bit of everything rolled into one post for everyone to draw ideas from!

What We're Doing:

  • Easter Party at Living History Farms
  • Eggstravaganza at Blank Park Zoo
  • Jester Park Equestrian Center Easter Egg Hunt
  • Easter Bunny-ing it up and Easter dinner with family

Other Things To Do:

  • Dye eggs (if you haven't done so already)
  • Create your own egg hunt
  • No plans for Easter day? Check out local brunches. Many restaurants run buffet style specials with their best food
  • Visit Michael's Craft Stores and get Easter crafts for the kids. These are great to keep kids entertained and fantastic for family gatherings
  • Watch Easter movies. Our favorites include: Hop, The Easter Bunny Is Coming To Town, and (for the older crowd) Jesus of Nazareth

Things To Do In Des Moines:

  • Easter Egg Hunts. There's so many that it's impossible to miss one! Check nearby churches, parks, etc. because they all have them!
  • Adult Easter Egg Hunt (Sunday at Sumerset Winery)
  • Easter Brunch Buffet and Egg Hunt (Iowa Cubs)
  • Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice
