Giant Magnet coming to Seattle on May 11-15

Since I started review blogging last August, my family has gotten to try out so many wonderful products and we've enjoyed them all. But what we love even more than the things that come in the mail are the opportunities to go participate in special activities in our area.  Yesterday I got an email with another invitation- one that we quickly accepted!

We are going to be attending Giant Magnet- a global event taking place locally. In our case, it's very local- just down the street at the Seattle Center.  I love it when the world shows up on my doorstep! This is an event taking place May 11-15 in Seattle, with events also occurring in Tacoma on May 17th.

There are both performance and participation events going on at Giant Magnet- the ticketed events are suitable for all ages, which I love. So many of the cultural or musical events that we would like to attend aren't baby and toddler-friendly. No tickets necessary for those 2 and under.  If you click on this site, you can see some of the performances that will be taking place at Giant Magnet- circus acts, music, dance, puppetry, so many great events!

In addition to these ticketed performances, there will be Discovery Centers set up around Seattle Center where you can go and actually do a hands-on activity such as make a kite, play an interactive game, create an origami creation, or hula-hoop! This site has a full list of the activities going on at the Discovery Centers.These activities are free with the purchase of a ticket to one of the performances.

Hope to see you there!

Disclosure: I received complimentary tickets to Giant Magnet as a thanks for spreading the word about this event. I was not compensated in any other way and opinions expressed here are mine and mine alone.
