Did you turn your clocks back last night? We did but I couldn’t sleep in this morning, which is weird because I’m usually a champion sleeper. Curses!
Here are some ideas for today. I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to! If you’re new here, think about “Liking,” SFM on Facebook so you don’t miss out.
Free Day of the Dead Celebration at The Tacoma Art Museum 10AM-4PM Chance to learn about another culture and see the museum lobby filled with a colorful sand painting. The Day of the Dead is traditionally a celebration of life, and is a joyous occasion, not a spooky one.
Be the Spark Community Sing Event in Tacoma-As part of a Youth Against Violence event, organizers hope to fill the Stadium Bowl in a giant, community sing. This would be a very cool event to do with tweens or teens.
I noticed the Curious George build at The Children’s Museum of Tacoma is Full. I’m thinking some of you may have gotten in on it! Let me know if you go!
There is a Family Play Day at Learning Sprout Toys in Tacoma. Families are invited to play board games or puzzles together every Sunday.
*I won’t be able to confirm this one until we get back from church, so you may want to call. Learning Sprout truly is a fantastic toy store. It has goodies floor to ceiling Santa’s workshop style, and there are tons of creative toys and quality, wooden toys. The prices really aren’t bad, either, but yeah…..the idea of letting you play with their games and puzzles is that you’ll want to buy one. You’ve been warned!
You might want to check my list of Top Playgrounds and Runners-up and get outside while it’s not raining. The lighting this time of year makes for great outdoor shots. My friend Lisa got some amazing ones of her girls in the leaves at Pt.Defiance.
If you like to spring for a professional, the Groupon today is for Yuen Lui. You can use it locally, and it’s a very good value if you do like to get professional portraits done.
Family Night at Pattison’s West skating rink in Federal Way
I’m working on a preview of Veteran’s Day events and more fun for the week ahead. I’ll be kicking off Monday with some more easy giveaways.
Be sure to check back and bring a friend!
