It appears we will finally be stepping out of the arctic blast and into a warmer weekend. We know how stir-crazy everyone (not just the kids) is getting. So get out and get to it.

Peter and the Starcatcher” is a prequel to J.M. Barrie’s classic, this one staged at the Kennedy Center. (Best for ages 10 and up.)

Chinese New Year Parade. It’s the year of the horse, so why not celebrate with music, dancing and a street festival right downtown?

How about some electronic pop for the kids? Elska will perform from her first children’s album at the Alden Theatre in McLean.

Lots of good Black History Month events are coming up. One way to kick it off: Black History Month Family Day: Power of the Word. There will be performances, crafts and tours of the exhibit “Changing America: The Emancipation Proclamation,1863, and the March on Washington, 1963” at the National Museum of American History.

For a few more weeks, you and your kiddos can take in “Miss Nelson is Missing” at Adventure Theatre. Recommended for 5 and up, the play based on the book by Harry Allard is just under an hour.
