Grab & Go Kids Planner: A Hawaiian Luau, Megaminds and more

A Hawaiian Luau for middle schoolers, reading buddies and a movie at the library, a museum visit and a music performance next week—are our suggestions for this week's Kids Planner.


Where/When: , 1 N San Antonio Rd., Friday, 8 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.  

Why Go: Well, we all can't go, since this is a dance for 7th and 8th graders living or attending school within Los Altos or Los Altos Hills. But if you are one of the lucky ones who can attend, don't miss this dance that promises to be a lot of fun. Wear your best hula gear and your flip flops!

Pricing: Check with LAYC website for different pricing options.


Where/When: , 13 S San Antonio Rd. Saturday, 2 p.m.

Why Go: This can be a nice way to spend an afternoon together—a good family movie at the library. And it's a fairly recent movie, too! The synposis provided by the library: "In this animated feature, super-villain Megamind kills his good-guy nemesis, Metro Man, and becomes bored, since there is no one left to fight. He creates a new foe, Titan , who, instead of using powers for good, sets out to destroy the world!"

Pricing: Free


Where/When: , 13 S San Antonio Rd., Saturday, 11 a.m. 

Why Go: If your child is a reluctant reader, Reading Buddies might be a good program to try. It encourages reading for children from kindergarten to 4th grade by letting them read to a dog. The dogs are specially trained therapy dogs that come with volunteers, who work with kids.

Pricing: Free


Where/When: , 51 S San Antonio Rd, Los Altos; Thursay, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Why Go:  This is a stellar exhibit—and the final month—about a family that was key in the development of the Los Altos Hills and surrounding area. And certainly, over the years, you have taken your child at least once to what was their family home, Hidden Villa. The exhibit is only up for another few weeks, so if you haven't gone with your child yet, this is probably a good time to do something you may have been thinking about doing for a while.

Pricing: Free


Where/When:, 230 San Antonio Circle, Monday, 7:30 p.m. 

Why Go:  This event starts off your week on Monday. You won't want to pass this up. A perfect, fun family event. Part of the program includes director Daniel Steinberg's outreach to all when he will teach the chorus and audience a song.

Pricing: Free
