The High Museum of Art has lots of family friendly for Toddlers to Teens based on the latest exhibit Frida & Diego.
I know most folks have already had spring break, but ours starts on Friday. I can’t wait. I don’t have any big field trips planned, but I’m looking forward to a slower grind. I know after next week, it’s a mad dash to the end of school and our summer is already booked with lacrosse tournaments up and down the East coast. It will be nice to hang out with friends next week on the beach at St. Simons. I’ve gotten some great recommendations on things to do and places to eat from fans of Field Trips with Sue on Facebook. If you aren’t a fan, join now. I get some great ideas from the group.
If you’re looking for something to do here in Atlanta the next few weeks, the High Museum of Art has a terrific line up for families with kids from Toddlers to Teens. It’s all based on the latest exhibit Frida & Diego. Here’s a list of upcoming fun.

Sagebrush Ranch is an educational indoor playground at the Booth Western Museum
Play. It’s how kids learn. But is all play equal? When the weather outside gets frightful, where can you take your little ones to work off some energy in some educational play. Here is a list of five wonderful Indoor Playgrounds in Atlanta that offer not only a place for physical exertion, but a mental workout as well. Many also have guides for parents to understand just what their kids are learning as they play. All of these places target kids from toddlers to elementary age. Please note, although I am describing them as ‘playgrounds’ all of these locations require that a parent engage with their children while they play. However, the good news is there is only one way in or out, so if you are chasing multiple kids and one gets away, you’ve only got one exit to cover.
