Kids and sports are a natural fit — and a great way to stay fit. The popular NFL PLAY 60 Training Camp returns to Heinz History Center. The indoor event offers a mini-combine, with speed and agility drills. Wear your favorite jersey and practice your touchdown dance. Sat., Jan. 27. Strip District. 412-454-6000 or

At Monster Jam, it never ever gets old watching ginormous trucks driving over smaller cars. (We see you, Gravedigger.) And fun for the whole family, since it’s a harmless way to let the kids vicariously destroy things. Feb. 9-11. PPG Paints Arena, Uptown.

Pigeons and buses: two things that already exist near the Children’s Museum. But now, pop inside for The Pigeon Comes to Pittsburgh, an exhibit celebrating the characters of Mo Willems’ book Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! Lots to play and learn with, including foam hot dogs. Starts Feb. 17. North Side.

Nothing says winter like “Disney on Ice.” Head over to the PPG Paints Arena, in Uptown, to catch Reach for the Stars, in which popular Disney characters such as Mickey, Minnie and Goofy glide and twirl across the frozen stage. Did somebody say “Frozen”?! It’s a good bet Elsa will come by, too. Feb. 22-25.
