This weeks installment of the Grab and Go calender features a few things that Mom would love.
(Ahem, for those who have forgotten, Sunday is Mother's Day! A perfect excuse to slip out of the house and get creative.)
When/Where: 6:30 p.m. - 10-30 p.m., Friday at in Gig Harbor.
Why Go: Dads, kids, remember how much you love that special lady in your life, give Mom some quiet time and decorate her some special in this Dad and Me ceramics night. Choose a piece you think Mom would love and beautify away!
Price: $20 (for Dad and one child, each additional child is $8), price does not include ceramic chosen. Reservation required.
When/Where: 7:30 a.m. - noon, Saturday beginning at the University of Washington Tacoma campus.
Why Go: Even if you haven't preregistered, you can show up bright-eyed and bushy tailed and walk this 5K event to help raise funds for juvenile diabetes. You can register and learn more about the event online.
Price: Free to register.
When/Where: 11 a.m., Wednesday at the Tacoma Art Museum at 1701 Pacific Ave.
Why Go: A trip to the museum is not always looked forward to by the youngest members of our families, not usually having developed a sense of art appreciation quite yet. Story time with Leroy is a good excuse to visit the current exhibit, while the stories being shared are related to the work you'll be viewing.
Price: Free with museum admission.
When/Where: Times vary depending on your local Home Depot store.
Why Go: 's first Saturday workshop conveniently falls the day before Mother's Day. So that makes you super last-minute folks in luck.
When/Where: 4 p.m. - 5 p.m., Wednesday at the Parkland/Spanaway Library and 2 p.m. - 3 p.m., Saturday at the Graham Pierce County Library.
Why Go: Kids in the 3rd through the 5th grade pair in teams to solve science and engineering challenges that have been featured on the PBS series. Hands-on fun and uses their noodles.
Price: Free (must register for the event).
