Here are five ways to have fun this weekend.

1. The big movies opening this week are “Rio 2,” a G-rated sequel to the animated hit; “Draft Day,” a PG-13 drama starring Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner; and “Oculus,” an R horror flick.

2. The Masters Tournament tees off Thursday, with action taking place all weekend. While Tiger Woods won’t be in the running for the green jacket, this is still can’t-miss golf. Head to the official website, http://www.masters.com/, for TV information and more.

3. Sunday is the beginning of National Library Week, and Saturday is D.E.A.R. Day (aka Drop Everything and Read Day). These special days are designed to get people reading and to get people to check out their local library. Head to the library this weekend to kick things off and pick out a book or three.

4. Sunday is Scrabble Day, a holiday celebrated on the birth of the inventor of “Scrabble,” Alfred Mosher Butts. Take some time today to have an old-fashioned board game afternoon. Challenge family, friends, neighbors or whoever wants to play!

5. If golf isn’t your thing, be sure to check out NBA and NHL action in the last moments of their regular seasons. And don’t forget MLB is in action, NASCAR takes place Saturday and Major League Soccer has games all weekend. Check your TV listings for broadcast times.
