Disney Tricks, STEM Fun, Memorial Day & More: This Week's MacKID Picks

Kid-friendly free events happening May 24-31

By Macaroni KID May 23, 2023

It's the final week of May, and if you're anything like our family, you are EXHAUSTED. Last week alone we had two school concerts and an art show to attend in the evenings, along with our normal sports practices to shuttle kids to and from. 

I told a friend who helped us with transportation logistics on one of the nights we had to be at two places at once that it takes a village ... especially in May.

I know other parts of the country are already into summer break. Hope that transition is going well!

We've gathered details on  free events that are both educational and fun this week you can do from home, ranging from science experiments to diving down deep to learn about coral and turtles. Plus ... Disney!

And don't forget Memorial Day. Take time on Monday to honor those who have sacrificed.

Here are our five ideas on what to do with your family this week:

1. Tune in for Insider Walt Disney World Tips, Advice

Macaroni KID is super excited to partner with Walt Disney World! We're kicking off the fun with a live panel discussion at 3 p.m. ET Wednesday diving into everything you need to know about planning the most unforgettable Disney World vacation for your entire family. You'll get insider tips, expert advice, and all the magical secrets to make your Disney World dreams come true! Watch it on Macaroni KID National's Facebook page. May 24

2. Celebrate World Turtle Day
