FAMILY BEST BETS OF THE WEEK
Where/When: Marin County Mart, 2257 Larkspur Landing Circle, Larkspur, Saturday, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Why Go: Because your kids want to be involved. Really. Help by making some baked goods to sell at the Mart. Or if you don’t feel like baking, why not go out, buy something delicious, knowing that all proceeds go to Peace, Winds, Japan. You can drop off the goodies after 8 a.m.
Pricing: Depends on whether you’re baking or buying. Either way it’s a win-win. For more info contact email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where/When: Sky Oaks Road, Fairfax
Why Go: The kids are ready for a hike (and so are you). This time of year is the perfect time to walk around the lake. The kids can search out salamanders and newts or watch the birds. You can take in the fresh air.
Where/When: Marin Kids and Maternity Consignment, 814 W. Francisco Blvd., San Rafael, Saturday 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Why Go: Come in and get a "mini shoot" with Kelly Baker Photography. Have the kiddos bring their favorite toy, stuffed animal or blanket for this relaxed session.
Pricing: $60 for mini shoot. Make an appointment early as the sessions book up fast at email@example.com.
Where/When: Playhouse, 27 Kensington Rd., San Anselmo, Friday 7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday 2 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Why Go: There’s something about this ballet that kids love, and why not? Could it be the lovely princess and lavish costumes? Or maybe it’s the fairies and magic spells? Either way, there's plenty of tutus.
Pricing: $12-$20. For more info call 415-454-5759.
