Playing around is always free, but sometimes it helps young kids and their caregivers to have something a little more structured. Enter the Children’s Museum of Tacoma: For years now, this institution has been reaching out to the community with free Play to Learn sessions.
The sessions are for those ages 6 and younger and those who look after them: parents, grandparents, neighbors, family and friends. With a new theme each week, they offer individual play with tactile toys from the museum, group activities, songs and circle time. Here are the times and places:
10-11:30 a.m. Sept. 21 and 28, Peace Community Center, 2106 S. Cushman Ave., Tacoma.
