Here are 3 things you need to know for today, Monday, October 27, 2014.

1. Since the Bay Area Discovery Museum is closed today, hop on over to Playland Sausalito for drop-in play 9 a.m.-noon. Every kid leaves with a temporary tattoo and a balloon animal.

2. Head to San Rafael’s WildCare Center to meet a variety of animals. Get up close and personal to their hawk at 11 a.m., at 1:30 p.m. you can meet a tortoise and later in the afternoon at 4 p.m. they’ll host an opossum feeding.

3. Build strength, get back in shape and meet other moms at a stroller fitness class at 10:15 a.m. at San Anselmo Memorial Park.
