Things to Do: March 2018

I'm back! After taking a break from collecting things to do around Sacramento each month - I decided to start this monthly post again. March is a time when the weather can be good one day and bad the next - so it can be hard to make plans. Easter is April 1, so the end of the month has a fair amount of Easter stuff happening.


Here's what's going on in March:

March 2: Books Before Bedtime - It's Dr. Seuss' birthday - and Fairytale town will be hosting bedtime stories in his honor. I'm not going to be in town that weekend - otherwise, we would totally go to this. Sound fun!

March 2: Red Panda Beer Release Party - For beer lovers who are also animal lovers - the Sacramento Zoo is partnering up with local breweries for an "Animals on Tap" fundraiser. This is the first of the series.

March 9: Sprouting Chefs: Taco Time - This is kind of a tease, because I'm 99% sure that by the time I share this it will be sold out. BUT you can look ahead and see if anything else grabs your attention at the co-op. Specifically these cool sprouting chef classes for kids.

March 16: Leprechaun Catchers - My kids LOVE trying to catch the sneaky Leprechauns this time of year. They make very elaborate traps at school. This event is at the McKinley library and sounds like a fun time.

March 24: Fun on the Farm - If your kids are interested in planting and soil and getting dirty - Soil Born Farms is having a kid-friendly event that lets kids dive into the soil. Recommended for ages 3-9 and it has a cost of $15 each.

March 24: Storytime at Underground Books  - There are story times all over - all the time. Mostly at the library. So while I don't always share all of them, they would all be great activities - especially on cold or rainy days.

March 24: March for Our Lives Sacramento - If you are sick and tired of shootings in our schools - then this march is for you. Show yourself and be counted as someone who wants changes made in Washington regarding gun control.

March 30: Guest Author - Erin Dealey - Event at the Sacramento Children's Museum during Literacy Month. This is the author wrote K is for Kindergarten and Little Bo Peep Can't Sleep. We have read (and loved) the Little Bo Peep one and the Kindergarten one is on my list before Lucille starts school. Seems like it would be a fun author to see.

March 31: Easter Eggstravaganza - This is happening "rain or shine" over at Fair Oaks Park. The thing I find challenging about events at Fair Oaks Park is the parking. But events like this are always fun for the kiddos. There is one at Arden Park too.
