Have you checked the calendar for this week yet?
Here are a few highlights!
On Wednesday at 11AM, the Seymour Conservatory in Tacoma’s Wright Park is hosting another excellent story time. These feature nature stories followed by art or science projects, and readers have loved them in the past. The conservatory is warm and tropical all year round, making it a nice stop this time of year! I will say it looks like a walk might be in store this week, as it’s a, “Neighborhood,” theme.
This special place makes a nice outing any time. Just don’t try it with a stroller or any child young enough to want to pick and eat plants. You can read more about an outing to the conservatory here. Adult admission is 3.00, and kids are free!
There are some library activities that look fun for young artists this week. School age kids can make Free art projects after school on Thursday at the Orting Library-all supplies included!
There is also a Discover Art program on Thursday in Gig Harbor. This one is also for kids 6 and up, and kids will learn about the artist, Georgia O’Keefe, and create art inspired by her works. Registration is required for this one. There are 13 spots left right now.It probably goes without saying that you need to dress for mess for both of these events!
If animals are more your thing, you might want to take your preschooler to Critter Club at the Point Defiance Zoo Thursday or Friday. These aren’t a total bargain, and they don’t include admission, but I went to several with my boys, and we really did think they were worth it. Besides the story and a craft, there is almost always a close-up animal encounter, and the educators are excellent.
For more weekday fun, be sure to check the calendar. As always, you’ll find it up in the menu bar. It’s near my Rainy Day Play tab…….you know……just in case!
