Now that the snow has melted and our weather has returned to Seattle’s signature soggy storms, the little ones are sure to be extra wiggly on these wet weekends. Here at Fidler on the Tooth we are always on the look out for fun things to get out and do with the family. Here are some great events that just happened, and we hope you got a chance to be a part of:
Doktor Kaboom! Live Wire, The Electricity Tour Feb. 11, 11am & 3pm
Doktor Kaboom is a German mad physicist that educates and entertains kids and adults alike with his interactive, character-driven comedy. Kaboom’s “Live Wire” will explore the fundamentals of electrical energy and the history of humanity’s adventures into its potential. The show is happening at the Northshore Performing Arts Center in Bothell.
Children’s Film Festival Feb. 11, 11am-6pm
Introduce the kids to independent film culture at this festival designed for the family. From animated shorts for toddlers, to live action shorts of kids from around the world for the elementary kids, to full-length features geared towards the 12+ crowd—there is something on the schedule for all ages.
Don’t Worry – There’s More!
Aside from the amazing events that happened in these past few months, with Spring quickly approaching, we have many more exciting events to look forward to in our Community! Here are Fidler’s top picks for awesome things happening around the area:
Seattle Children’s Theatre – Seedfolks March 23rd – April 13th
Head to Seattle Center for a performance of “Seedfolks Directed by Peter C. Brosius.” Based on the popular book of the same title, this one-woman show will plant wonder in your heart, as a reminder that we’re capable of making the world a better place, and an inspiration to do so.
Scout Discount Day at Northwest Trek March 18th
If you are up for a short jaunt to Tacoma, children who are Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, or Camp Fire Members, can enjoy the park for a discounted admission of $12 per person (They can even bring up to 4 friends). The tram tours at this 400+ acre wildlife park are the perfect way to see the animals on a rainy afternoon. Between storm clouds, the one-of-a-kind Kids’ Trek playground is always a big hit.
Family Theater – A Little Mermaid Apr. 8th –May. 20th
Produced by The Storybook Theater, this adaptation of the classic fable was written by Lani Brockman with music and lyrics by Susan Bardsley. Performances will be held at the Shoreline Conference Center, Kirkland Performance Center, Rainier Arts Center in Columbia City, Everett PUD Auditorium and Hales Palladium in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood. Check the website for exact dates and times.
