Mother Goose Goes to the Symphony
Kids’ Concerts with the Federal Way Symphony 7.00 tickets
Water Weekends with HCC Mast at Redondo Every Saturday visit the center for free and get up close with sea critters in their touch tanks.
Dr. Seuss Event at the Tacoma Mall Meet at the JCPenney Court for bookmark making, stories, character meet and greet, viewing of PBS Cat in the Hat show and more. 1-3 PM The online info. says this is a free, public event, though I do think there is a chance you’ll have to get your kids a 5.00 yearly Kiddigit mebership. Thanks to reader JC for letting me know about this event!
Kids’ Dental Health Day at the South Hill Mall Free dental screenings for children who qualify. Honestly? We’ve been to this, and I was a little underwhelmed, but the kids liked the free toothbrushes. If your kids draw a picture of themselves brushing and flossing they can enter to win a family membership to the PDZA. Goody bags; visit with tooth and tooth fairy mascots.
10-2 Left hand side of this site has a link to a you-tube video about the event.
Family Day at the Karshner Museum in Puyallup Small, family friendly museum with lots for the kids to touch. 3.00 person/10.oo per family Event is on; info. on website isn’t current, but the directions are the same. This month’s theme is shapes and patterns. There will be tangrams and other shape fun out for the kids.

Apparently there is some sort of football game going on Sunday. ‘Um….duh?
If you’d like an alternative our friends at Tiffany’s Skate Inn in Puyallup let me know they have a bargain skate planned. Admission is just 1.00 (rentals extra), and yes, they’ll have the game on.
or Michael’s has two craft events today. 1-2 is a foam mailbox and 2-3 is a card. Events are free for kids, while supplies last. As always, it’s not a bad idea to call first.
If you’d like the kids to get in on the fun, here’s a list of Super Bowl Game activities for the kiddos from Parent Map. Is eating chips and dips not considered an activity? Hmmm…..
If you haven’t already done so, make sure you’ve picked up tickets if your little girls are wanting to attend a daddy/daughter dance. Many of these are sold out already, but you may have luck in a neighboring town.
