Tacoma Kids Weekly: February 25

1. Going to see the University String Orchestra would be a great compliment to any study of music appreciation. They will be performing Wednesday, February 27th at 7:30pm. The concert takes place at the Schneeback Concert Hall at UPS and is free to the public.

2. If you are studying African culture in any way here is an event for you. Lute Explosion, a student run African Dance group from PLU, will be doing a demonstration at the Garfield Book Comany on February 28 from 6-7pm.

3. The Pantages Theater is offering a concert featuring favorite film scores, show tunes, and classics from ballet and opera. What a great way to introduce a wide variety of classic music to kids. Friday, February 29th at 8:00pm there will be a special showing; students 16 and under will receive a complimentary ticket with a paid adult ticket. Adult tickets run from $10 to $21. I do not know if there is a limit to how many students can receive a complimentary ticket with each paying adult. If this is something you think you'd be interested in, give them a call. There's still plenty of seats left when I checked.

4. I've mentioned Izilla Toys in the last couple of weeks and here they are again. Celebrate this year's leap year with a Leapathon at Izilla Toys with a jump rope contest, refreshments, prizes and more. This event is free for all ages and takes place on February 29th from 4-6pm up in Seattle. I can't wait to check out this fun-sounding toy store!

5. If you've never made it up to KidsQuest Children's Museum in Bellevue, Fridays are the day to go. Admission is free from 5-8pm.

6. If you've been wanting to visit Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo, Friday, February 29th is the day to do it. In celebration of leap year, Woodland Park Zoo is offering free admission to any kids ages 3-12 who are dressed in green or other frog-related clothing; kids' admission usually runs $8 each. They will be hosting a variety of learning and craft activities about frogs, toads, and amphibians from 10am to 2pm. Adult admission is $11.

7. It is time for Home Depot's Kids Clinic again. Saturday morning from 9am - 12pm stop by any Home Depot to build something fun with the kids. All materials and supplies are provided for free. Home Depot's website doesn't show what March's kit is y The kit for March is a race car (Thank you, Unmainstream Mom, for finding that). You can see what we've built in the past by looking through my previous Home Depot posts.

The Tacoma Kids Weekly button looks great! The Home Depot site says that March is the #20 Race Car. Haven't Mika & Sammy already done race cars? I hope you all are recovering from the flu and feeling better :)

Hey...I use to live in Puyallup! Warmed my heart to see the dome. Now if only I could see the mountain again....
