This week’s suggestions include seeing the last “Harry Potter” movie, watching the Women’s World Cup final, celebrate National Ice Cream Day and more.
1. The last “Harry Potter” movie or book has finally arrived: “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” opens in theaters this week and is sure to be a hit. It’s rated PG-13 and looks to be too scary for young children, but everyone else should enjoy it. For the wee ones, another beloved hero returns to the screen – “Winnie the Pooh,” rated G.
2. The Women’s World Cup final is Sunday at 2:45 EDT on ESPN, with our very own U.S. team playing for the championship. The tournament hasn’t had as much press as last year’s men’s tournament, but there have been some incredible moments, and you won’t want to miss this game.
3. It’s currently National Rabbit Week, a week dedicated to pet bunnies. If you’re looking for a pet, why not consider a rabbit? Head to your local pet store or animal shelter if you’re interested. And before you buy one, make sure you know all about rabbit care.
4. Sunday is National Ice Cream Day. It’s sweltering out there, and there’s nothing like ice cream on a hot day, so head to your favorite shop to celebrate. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could try to make your own ice cream.
5. This week is National Zoo Keeper Week, an occasion to recognize the contributions of zookeepers. Head to your local zoo if you can, or find more information at http://aazk.org/national-zoo-keeper-week/.
