Here are my picks for South Sound weekday fun for the week of June 20th. Know something great I missed? Want my help finding something else? Let me know!
The Pierce County library system rolls out summer craft and story sessions for young children, as well as multicultural activities for tweens. Here is the link to their calendar this week. Pick a day and find an activity and branch near you! If you’re one of my Thurston County readers, here is the link toTimberland regional library. Here is the link for my Kitsap readers (this is a large-ish pdf file-scroll down for the storytimes). I include Puyallup and Tacoma Public libraries within the regular list.
Note that many area children’s museums and bouncy facilities offer special camps during the summer months. I’ll work on updating those listings, but for now, if you’re headed to a facility in my indoor play or bouncy house list, call to check first.
