What to do with the kids on President’s day?
Here’s a round up for Tacoma, Olympia, and the rest of the South Sound. Got something fun I missed? Let me know!
Eat Breakfast With Blade! Enjoy a pancake breakfast, photos and skating with Sprinker’s penguin mascot. Registration is closed, but you could call and see if you could still get in.
Step outside and Join the Great Backyard Bird Count Spend as little as 15 minutes in your backyard counting feathered friends. Submit your results to help scientists around the world. All kinds of helpful info. at the link.
Play at the Children’s Museum in Tacoma Admission by donation; special Monday opening!
Meet Northwest animal friends at Kids n Critters at NW Trek Up to 4 children get in free with each paying adult. Special activities, too. Adult admission is around 18.00 (Yeah, spendy). There should be a free admission opportunity next weekend if you do a Volksmarch walk first. Other than that, there is just one free day a year for Pierce County residents, so this is a really good deal. If you’d do more than twice this year, you may want to get a pass. You should be able to apply what you spend today to one, and they can be added on to zoo memberships.
Here is my list of area malls with play areas. Near Federal Way? SuperJumpPartyZone has moved into the commons.
Skate and save with Cheapskate pricing at Sprinker Two times 5.50 includes admission and skate rental. Link is a pdf. Look in the middle right column on pg. 12
Roll at a Schools-out Skate Session at Tiffany’s in Puyallup Also offered on the Tuesday inservice day
Explore the new Hands-on Children’s Museum in Olympia. Special President themed activities today.
Thrift it up. It’s half-off day at Value Village.
Stay warm with my lists of Indoor Play Options
Most places attached or associated with a school or parks department will be CLOSED but privately run businesses will be OPEN. Yes, I think you can expect crowds.
President’s/Mid Winter Break Ideas
I’ll have my usual list of weekday fun up later today, too!
