Whether you need to burn off some steam before, during, or after the game-or maybe you’re just not sports fans, I’m here to help!
Here is a list of things you can do with the kids all over the South Sound today. Do note that if you’re headed to a private business, it’s a good idea to call first, as many are closing up early to let their staff watch the game.
1. Get outside! Try one of our favorite South Sound nature walks. Maybe practice up for the Great Backyard Bird Count!
2.Hit the slopes! Local ski areas have plenty of powder, and are likely to be relatively uncrowded. While not a frugal outing, their beginner lesson/rental packages are typically their best deals. You can check out the options from Crystal here. They’ll also have the game on in their restaurants if you want to take a break. Need a deal? If you head to Snoqualmie you can get an afternoon ticket for just 12.00!Thanks, reader Jamie for the tip!
Sledding more your speed? See this post for area options for sledding and snow play.
3. Get your skate on. Admission to Tiffany’s Skate Inn in Puyallup is just 1.00 Sunday (rentals a few bucks more). Yes, they’ll have the game on.
4. Find your prince charming. Mane Stage theater in Sumner is showing Snow White. Bring your camera for princess photo ops. after the show.
5. Talk to the animals-Both the Point Defiance zoo and Northwest Trek are unlikely to be crowded tomorrow, and you can get a deal if you wear Seahawks gear. You say you wouldn’t be reading this if you were a fan? Get a solid shirt and draw a big, blue 12 on it, and you should be good to go! Near Olympia? Visit the South Sound Estuarium and get up close with sea critters!
6. You can also get a discount at the Museum of Flight and the Washington State History Museum-both great, kid friendly spots.
7.Play like a kid! Speaking of museums, The Children’s Museum in Tacoma and the Hands-on Children’s Museum in Olympia are both open today and likely to be much less crowded than usual. Xtreme Bounce of Fun is open at the Outlet Collection (Supermall) (no TVS). I suspect other mall located play areas are also open, though I haven’t had a chance to check.
8. Take a walk on the wild side. The Nisqually Wildlife Refuge is a great, kid friendly spot with easy trails and interesting displays inside if you get chilled.
9.Look for monkeyshines! The real life treasure hunt is on in Tacoma, and you’ll probably have less competition during game time. How many are there left to find? There’s just no telling!
10.Get in the swim! There is an open swim session at the very cool Federal Way Community Center Pool. I’m guessing during the game would also be a great time for a less crowded workout at your favorite area rec spot!
11. Get your bounce on! Our sponsors at Trampoline Nation are open, and they have two 60″ screens in the mezzanine.
If you’ve got another great idea, let me know!
If you’re looking for a kid friendly spot to watch the game, our friends at ThriftyNorthwestMom have compiled a great list. Note that I think all of these places are going to be crowded?
If the party is at your house,I have the recipe you want to bring. It’s Seahawks guacamole (at least it’s green…). Just go one down for that-feel free to serve it with blue chips!
