If you're one of those parents, then you've come to the right place. Macaroni Kid CEM has got you covered this summer. Remember to always check our calendar section every week to find fun things to do with the kids while they're out of school for the summer and in between camps and vacations!

This Week in Macaroni Kid:
- Congratulations to last week's contest winner: Rhonda B. (Little Learners Contest)
- In our contest this week, we've got something exciting! If you (or your older kids) are a fan of Zombie movies, you'll want to enter this week's giveaway for TWO tickets to "The Big Zombie Tour." The tour is offered by Atlanta Movie Tours, which opened March 2012, and gives you an insider's look at all of the cool places around the city where lots of Zombie movies have been filmed!
- We've got two Macaroni Reviews for you this week that you won't want to miss: P.J. Tuttles Party Decor & Cakes and "The Big Adventure" exhibit at Imagine It! The Children's Museum of Atlanta. Speaking of the museum, Macaroni Kid will be hosting a Macaroni Kid Day on June 24 there. Come to the museum on that day and you'll receive $3 off each admission ticket PLUS you'll be entered into a Macaroni Kid contest for a FREE Annual Family Membership!
- Time is running out on summer camps, especially if you have a little musical Einstein at home. Our friends at Spivey Hall Education are offering 10% off on registration of their Music Summer Camp. Hurry, camp starts the week of June 11!
- Atlanta's South Side Amusement Park, Dixieland Fun Park in Fayetteville is now Fun Junction USA! With the new name change also comes some other family-friendly changes to the park. Find out what they're up to this summer season!
- Keep your high school students reading even while schools out, with this summer reading list!
- Last week we published our list of great markets in South Atlanta that where you can get fresh locally grown fruits, vegetables and lots more! This week we have a list of places south of the city where you can bring the entire family for free summer movies!
- On our Macaroni Menu last week we provided you with a recipe for a breakfast power smoothie . This week, we've got a refreshing and delicious frosty Orange Delight drink you're going to want to make all summer long! From our Macaroni Made , if you're not a lover of dirt, but would still like the experience of growing vegetables with your kids, find out how to make an edible "No Dig Garden" this week.
