From single-digit temperatures to a balmy 64 degrees in less than seven days is just weather in the Carolinas! Enjoy the warm-up out and about playing with the family with the top seven for fun with the kids. Oh and GO PANTHERS!

1. Monster Truck lovers will not want to miss the awesomeness of Monster Jam. Gravedigger, Man of Steel and other big-wheeling favorites will be tearing through the obstacle course at Time Warner Cable Arena.

2. In the spirit of Panther’s pride, head over to the Play 60 KidZone at Freedom Park. The one-of-a-kind play area and obstacle course is a ton of fun and great way for kids to get out their energy.

3. Celebrate creativity and art with face painting and caricature drawings, plus doughnuts and coffee at The Art Room Relaunch.

4. Learn how to build motor circuits and write code to build your own robot at Build it, Make it, Take it.

5. Explore galaxies far away through the lens of the Hubble telescope at the new IMAX movie “Hubble” narrated by Leo DiCaprio.

6. Bejewel your own treasure box, make a Panthers badge and learn healthy living activities to treasure a lifetime at Sunday Fun Day: Treasure Chest of Art.

7. Check out some of the snakes and turtles that live around the Latta Nature Preserve and meet some up close at Radical Reptiles.

And it’s not too early to start thinking about summer camps. Check out our overnight camps directory to find the one that fits your child.
