If you are looking for something fun to do with kids in Ambridge, Bulger, Crafton, Carnegie, Clinton, Coraopolis, Greentree, Leetsdale, McDonald, McKees Rocks, Moon, Robinson, Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas, MacKID Robinson has you covered by providing five things for you to do with your kids in the area or a short drive away over the coming week. Go find your family fun!

Here is Macaroni Kid Robinson's picks for the five things to do in the Pittsburgh area with kids Monday, September 13th - 19th, 2021. Click on the links for all the details!

1. Find Your Fall Family Fun

While I'm still not ready to let go of summer, once Labor Day passes and the pools close, I try to get into acceptance of what is to come. This weekend I did my cleaning in preparation of pulling out our fall decorations and planning our fall festivities. Whether you like to PYO apples, attend as many local fairs as possible or just stay home and do a fall craft with the kiddos, MacKID has you covered. The Burgh's Ultimate Fall Family Fun Guide has everything you need from an Apple Picking Guide to Pumpkin Patches to Fall Recipes and more. Scroll to the bottom of the guide to see all the Fall fun happening in the 'Burgh by day and refer to the MacKID Robinson event calendar for things specifically in Pittsburgh West. 


2. Plan a fun Outdoor Activity for the family!

We just got word this weekend that the Sunset Run and Hike has been cancelled due to low registration numbers, but Ohio Township Parks & Rec has modified the event to encourage everyone to get out for a walk, run or hike to celebrate Trails Months! Anyone who registers HERE and logs their mileage between September 11th-30th is eligible for a race pack, while supplies last. Virtually log your miles with National Aviary's Hike-A-Thon for double the rewards and satisfaction! We have also heard wonderful things about the Asian Lantern Festival 🏮at Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium. 


3. Check out Pittsburgh RADical Days

Pittsburgh RADical days are happening all month long, offering fun experiences for you and your family at no cost. Visit the Hidden Life of Trolls exhibit at RADical Days at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens or take part in a STEM program at RADical Days at Sto-Rox Public Library. City Theatre Company presents "The Rivers Don't Know" at various times throughout the weekend. See our event calendar for the full listing of RADical days this week. 


4. Get your Teens Moving

School is back in session but that doesn't mean your teens need to stop having fun! Teens love crafts at Western Allegheny Community Library, (TLC) Teens Love Crafts: Paracord Bracelets or playing board games at Teen Board Game Cafe 🎲 in Sewickley. 


5. Plan Ahead

Simone Biles and Team are coming to PPG Paints Arena on October 29th. Macaroni KID has 3 different opportunities for you to win tickets HERE. If you don't win, you'll definitely want to order your tickets now to see this lineup!
