Hot tip alert! When our writer mom, Julie, was checking out the trails and playgrounds at the Tehaleh housing development in Bonney Lake, she ran into the marketing manager for Tehaleh who tipped her off to a great free event coming up on Saturday, May 14th, at Donald Eismann Elementary School.
The Tehaleh builders are hosting a Build–A–Bear Workshop. It’s from noon-3 and open to the public. The first 1,200 bears are FREE. Plus from 11-3 they’ll have an inflatable slide, Daffodil Princesses, balloon art, and food trucks in an event tent. Note from SFM-I have no idea how crowded this will be, or how hard it will be to score a free bear, so go with your spirit of adventure!
If you are house shopping (or dreaming), you might also want to enter the Tehaleh 2016 Families Love Tehaleh Sweepstakes. If you visit each of the eight builders at Tehaleh you can enter to win a birthday party at the Point Defiance Zoo or a 200.00 gift card to REI. The sweeps started on the 14th and runs through May 22nd. There are entry forms at The Post or with any of the builders. When Julie was visiting there were very few entries, so it sounds like your odds are good!
