Beatrix Potter Puppet Play

Leave a comment



I never could resist alliteration!

The weather is frightful, and parents of cooped up kids may be looking for a fun family activity again this weekend. The Beatrix Potter tales were a family favorite when we were kids–I almost have the Tale of Timmy Tiptoes memorized since I read it so many times. Puppet and Potter fans should check the Puppet Co. Playhouse in Glen Echo, MD for a special treat.

What are these two bad mice up to? Find out in “Tales of Beatrix Potter.” There are just two more weekends – tomorrow and Sunday at 11:30 and 1:00, and next week Friday at 10:00 and 11:30, and Saturday and Sunday at 11:30 and 1:00. Tickets are just $10 (kids who have not reached their 2nd birthday are free) and may be purchased online with no service charge!

Best Egg Hunt Ever!

Work 2013

Everyone seems to have egg hunts in spring, and let’s face it; they’re all variations on a theme. If you’re looking for a family outing that will provide the kids with something more than a sugar rush, check out the Fossil Egg Hunt at the Calvert Marine Museum on March 30 starting at 10:30 a.m. Designed for children age 3-8, the kids are divided into two groups to give everyone a fair chance at the goodies. Best of all, participants get to keep the fossils. Bring your own basket for egg collecting. Free with museum admission.

 Also at the CalvertMarineMuseum, enjoy learning about otters, the merry prankster of the mammal world, on April 1 for a fun April Fools Day activity. Sign up for the Otter Breakfast and learn about otter enrichment, habitat, and the mischief these mammals get into with their playful curiosity. Go behind the scenes to talk with a keeper and observe a feeding. 

A continental breakfast will be provided as part of the fee. Children must be at least 8 years old and accompanied by an adult to participate. Space is limited, pre-registration required. Fee is $15 per person, $10 for members and includes museum admission. Call 410-326-2042 ext. 41 to register.  Program begins at 9 a.m.
