Recently, my family had the opportunity to do a private Seattle Aquarium behind the scenes tour. Let me tell you: It was fantastic and my kids are begging to go back!
Seattle Children’s Theatre Presents The Velveteen Rabbit
Running November 1-December 30, 2018, The Velveteen Rabbit is Seattle Children’s Theatre’s holiday show.
The show comes to Seattle from the Unicorn Theatre in London, which is the UK’s leading theatre for young audiences.
What are the Seattle Amazon Spheres?
Amazon is always trying to come up with ways to make life easier and a bit more enjoyable. I mean, Amazon Prime has changed the way most of my Mom friends live!
So, it should be no surprise that they created a unique work space for their employees: the Seattle Amazon Spheres.
I saw my first Eric Carle book when I was in kindergarten. It was Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? and our class did an art project where we each created a page in the book.
It’s my most memorable art project from elementary school and that book was definitely a favorite growing up.
Seattle Waterfront Shuttle
Have you heard about the Seattle Waterfront Shuttle? It’s the newest Seattle tour bus (it just launched 3 weeks ago) and it’s completely free!
It’s available 7 days a week from 10am-8pm this summer/fall and stops at 9 attractions near downtown Seattle and along Seattle’s waterfront.
Have you ever done an escape room?
You know, those places where a group of people are locked in a room and have to figure out puzzles, find clues, and escape within a short time limit.
What’s the Seattle Ice Cream Cruise
The Seattle Ice Cream Cruise (also called the Sunday Ice Cream Cruise) is a little boat ride offered by the Seattle Ferry Service.
Day Trip From Seattle
To me, it’s hard to beat the Seattle Waterfront on a warm summer day. It’s just comes alive! And it’s the best spot to see ferries and cruise ships. The only thing cooler than being on the Seattle Waterfront is seeing it from the water on a Seattle cruise! So for my birthday this year, I decided to take my family on a Seattle Argosy Cruise to Tillicum Excursion on Blake Island.
Pier 57 in Seattle with Kids
Whether you are visiting Seattle with kids on a family vacation, or you are a local Seattle family, Pier 57 is the ultimate spot for family fun in Seattle.
The Funko headquarters is in Everett, WA and is a fun thing to do near Seattle with kids who love Disney, Star Wars, Marvel, DC Comics and more!
Pacific Science Center with Toddlers
The Pacific Science Center is a great stop for tourists and locals alike when visiting Seattle Center. Not only do they house fabulous exhibits year-round suitable for kids and adults, but they also have really interesting traveling exhibits. The Pacific Science Center is a fun thing to do in Seattle with kids of all ages. It’s also the ultimate place to watch an IMAX movie.

The Lamp is the Moon
The Lamp is the Moon is a new works production at Seattle Children’s Theatre. Annelih GH Hamilton plays Shawn, a young girl who is supposed to be taking a nap, but can’t fall asleep. But, it’s not surprising. See, her grandmother gives her an old lamp right before nap time. This is frustrating to her because her mind is already ticking about all the possibilities of things she can do with her lamp. Her parents have already taken out the light bulb and cut the cord so its only function is to inspire creativity. It’s impossible to fall asleep when she has a lot of dreaming to do.
Seattle Children’s Theatre at Seattle Center
I was thrilled to be invited to the opening night of Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed: The Rock Experience at Seattle Children’s Theatre last Friday. My 4 year old loves Mo Willems’ humorous books. However, we had just seen Hamilton at the Paramount. That’s a REALLY hard act to follow for any theatrical performance. But, I’m very passionate about arts for kids. Plus, we heard Mo Willems was going to be at opening night! Post contains affiliate links.
