Grab and Go Kid's Planner, May 4th

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.


South Sound Walk to Cure Diabetes

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.


Story Time With Leroy

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.

Price: Free.


Fetch! With Ruff Ruffman

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.
