Saturday. Hop to the Children’s Museum of Denver for the Bunny Trail EggVenture, an all-day spring celebration. The whole museum, inside and out, will be prepped for a party full of live performances, demonstrations and activities. Stop in for storytime with The Big Bunny, see performances by Radio Disney or watch liquid nitrogen ice cream being made. In the meantime, try on Colorado Ballet costumes, dye some eggs, make bunny ears and more. Weather permitting, outside activities will include a petting zoo, games and rides on Vern’s Mini-Train. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Children’s Museum of Denver, 2121 Children’s Museum Drive; 303-433-7444.

Friday-Sunday. There are just a few more days left to catch “Embrace!” at the Denver Art Museum, closing on Sunday. The exhibit invited artists to have their way with the museum’s striking Hamilton Building, and this weekend, kids are especially welcome to see the result. Make your own “Embrace!” creations and display them, just like the artists (or take them home). Dance with Colorado Ballet teachers in the gallery, and grab a Family Backpack or Art Tube to take through the museum. Best of all, kids age 17 and younger are admitted to the museum free, as part of the museum’s Spring Break celebration. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and Saturday, noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Friday-Sunday. It’s the last weekend to get “a spoonful of sugar” with “Mary Poppins” at the Buell Theater. The touring production of the Broadway musical mixes P.L. Travers’ original stories with moments from the classic Disney film. And of course, there are the songs: “Chim Chim Cher-ee,” Step in Time,” and a little ditty called “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” 7:30 p.m. tonight, 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Sunday.

Through April 24. Take a turn for the weird with “Captain Swift and the Invasion from Planet X” at the Bug Theatre. Presented by the Planet X Players, the show is a serial science-fiction melodrama.

Friday. Wind down the week with an evening walk at the Audubon Society of Greater Denver’s Audubon Center. The “Dusk into Darkness” walk starts just when many creatures are getting ready for bed. Learn how the nocturnal creatures of the South Platte River habitat have adapted to life at night. After the walk, warm up with a campfire and snacks. 7:30-9:30 p.m. tonight. The Audubon Center, Waterton Road at South Wadsworth Boulevard, Littleton. Tickets are $12 for adults, $7 for children under age 12. Audubon Society members receive a $2 discount.
