There will be several mini-lectures on hot topics for parents, including:

Kids get to have fun, too, boogying to live music, enjoying a puppet show and storytelling from Frye Art Museum and Seattle’s Children’s Theater, trying their hand at a dinosaur matching game provided by the Burke Museum and a craft and storytelling session with the Nordic Art Museum.
Free active fun (parents, read ‘FREE childcare’) will be provided by Seattle Preschool teachers from the Seattle Gymnastics Academy. Goody bags will be given to the first 200 families.
