We’ve got another great weekend plan, chock-full of activities you won’t want to miss. Whether you’re looking ahead to mid-winter break, or trying to get a jump start on Valentine’s Day and the Lunar New Year, we’ve got you covered. From a washi-tape film making workshop and an important radio drama, to nature scavenger hunts that are…wait for it… legendary, here’s what Seattle families can look forward to this weekend.
Seek the legends
Join the Seward Park Audubon Center to celebrate our Seattle-area legends—the trees, flowers and wildlife that makes our area unique. This month’s challenge Fir Mix-A-Lot is all about big trees. Now through Feb. 21. Event details.
Snag a Year of the Ox Craft Kit
If you’re as excited as we are for the Wing Luke Museum’s Lunar New Year Celebration next weekend, you’ll want to make the most of it. If you haven’t already, register for your free craft kit while there’s still time.
Seattle Symphony’s Tiny Clips for Tiny Tots is back! During this online presentation, kids will swim like a swan, hop like a kangaroo and strut like a lion as they learn about the instruments of the brass family with host and Seattle Symphony Horn, John Turman. Fri. Event details.
Get a jump start on Valentine’s Day
We’re sweet on these two baking classes—one virtual, one IRL—that teach kids how to bake treats just in time for Valentine’s Day. If virtual is your game, check out Kids Bake: V is for Valentine, hosted by PCC. Or drop your kids off for a hopping good time baking lady bug cupcakes, teddy bear Oreo pops and sugar cookies in Kirkland.
Go on an ArtVenture
The Henry Art Museum is at it again, and this time they’re making magic patterns using everybody’s favorite decorative tape—washi tape. During the online workshop, families will get hands-on, combining washi tape with 16mm film to learn about how patterns, rhythms and textures function in art. Feb. 7-14. Event details.
Listen to the Laramie Project
This weekend only, Studio East is honored to present the gripping play, The Laramie Project, as a radio drama. The Laramie Project tells the true story of Matthew Shepard, a college student, who was killed in October 1998 as a hate crime for being gay. Recommended for ages 12 & up. Fri.-Sun. Event details.
