Past Courses

Busy Bag Workshop: Stocking Stuffers & Travel Activities

Make your holidays a little more merry by keeping your kids engaged and busy! Busy bags are simple, captivating activities for kids you can pull out at a moment's notice. They are perfect to use on the airplane, while waiting for a holiday dinner, or when your child needs some quiet time. Busy bags also make great stocking stuffers and can be used as gifts between friends and siblings!
 
Each ticket includes 3 busy bags to take home. More busy bags can be purchased at the workshop. Coffee and snacks are included.
 
This workshop is kid friendly! Please let me know how many kids you plan on bringing so I can limit ticket sales accordingly. Every adult must purchase a ticket.

Tricky Conversations: A Discussion for Parents

Where do babies come from? When will you die? Will there be a shooting at my school? Why is that kid so mean to me?
 
Hearing these tricky questions from your children can feel like a gut punch. But when the stakes are high, our answers mean more than ever. How can we guide our children through a world that can be scary and confusing, even for adults?
 
Join us to learn what the experts say about tough topics. Then, we'll have a discussion with parents in our local community and share our own thoughts, stories, and advice.

Complimentary tickets are available to parents in financial need. If you would like more info, please email info@tacomachildrensschool.com .
