It's been a while since we've posted kid-friendly anything on the site, but we're back at it and plan to keep it up. So, check back for more stuff to do with the kids every week.
This weekend, see CATS at The Children's Theatre for its last showing, go to Boondocks (indoor/safe from weather) for the Safe at Home event and auction and get ready for Discovery Gateway's Week of the Young Child.
If it snows enough and the sun comes out, we also recommend sledding at Sugar House Park. It might be your last chance until next fall/winter. And, depending on the weather, bring the teens to the Riverwoods Mall in Provo for the free Jam at the River including Sugar Ray, Fictionist, Ryan Shupe and a ton of local bands and singers.
