Need something to do this long Veteran’s Day weekend?
I’ve got ceremonies in Tacoma, movies in Gig Harbor, story time events all over, and adventures in Olympia!
Whatever part of the South Sound you call home, Sounds Fun Mom is here to help with a complete list of family events and activities just for the South Puget Sound every Friday morning! I also have lots of fun ideas the rest of the week!
What to do Saturday

Kids’ Club at Michael’s Stores 2.00 per child for a 30 minute session. Sessions begin on the half hour starting at 10AM It’s a Thanksgiving ,”Handcrafted,” turkey today.
Ultimate Wish Saturday at Toys R Us Stores Activities and giveaways every Saturday through 11/23 from 10AM-2. I have no idea whether this will actually turn out to be an event, or just a, “Toy push.” If you go, let me know whether it’s worth including on the list.
