Family Friendly Fun in Orlando 8/15/2016-8/31/2016

By: Jacqueline Foust ( Art in the Park Orlando)

I know we are all thinking about posting a back to school picture in the upcoming days but please, lets be careful here. Rule number one, “Bye Felicia” is not a term of endearment. See “Friday”and/or “Straight Outta Compton” for more info on that).  Rule two, wine drinking at breakfast in your bathrobe gets you a visit from family services not 10K likes. Rule three, this is the important one, BE CREATIVE this is a memory your child will have for a lifetime. Shoot them out of a cannon or something special like that. If your not feeling creative yet I’ve peppered some brain flexing activities into the calendar for the bi-weekly Family Friendly Fun In Orlando #WorthDoing so, get to work!
