Tacoma Free Day at the Zoo

This Saturday the 28th of January, the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium is offering free entrance to all Tacoma residents. Proof of residency is required, zoo membership, utility bill, drivers license, etc.

This is a great opportunity to see great animals, and enjoy the wonderful views of the Puget Sound. This is one of my favorite places, my boys too. Even in the rain there is much to enjoy at the aquarium, discovery center and other exhibits.

***Get there early as it can get crowded fast***

How to Train Your Dragon and Craft – Summit

On Friday, Jan 27th from 3:30pm till 6pm, at the Summit Pierce County Library, you can watch the movie ‘How to Train Your Dragon’, eat some snacks and make a dragon themed craft after the movie.

The movie is rated PG, the rating blog from IMDb will give you more information to see if the movie is right for you and your youngster.  It is a hard line to walk to make a film the kids will find funny, and entertain parents too.  So use your best jugement.

Healthy Teeth, Healthy Smiles

For my southies, the Parkland/Spanaway branch of the Pierce County Library, tomorrow on Jan 25th at 10:30am, you can make a tooth themed craft and learn all about dental health from a special guest from the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department (Feburary is Dental Health Month).  Everyone have healthy snacks and walk away with a free toothbrush and resource information for dental care. 

This is a great excursion for the family on a blustery, windy day.  Make a craft, eat a snack, and learn all about your teeth.  My boys are always interested in learning about their bodies, sometimes to my chagrin – in public.  But this is safe. 🙂

Soundbridge at Seattle Symphony

Every Friday, from noon till 4pm, Soundbridge is FREE! Soundbridge is a great part of the Seattle Symphony where children can play instruments, make noise, and experiment with sound. At 1:30, participate in musical storytelling.

My boys love music and are always dancing around. I keep meaning to bring them to this, but it’s a bit of a trek for a Friday night. But, if you’re based closer to Seattle, then this is definitely a must-do.
