Breakfast with the Wabbit
Kids don't have to wait until Easter morning to get up close and personal with the Easter Bunny. Everybody's long-eared pal is going to be hanging out, live and in person, at the zoo. Don't worry -- they haven't put him in a cage. He's sitting in at a pre-Easter breakfast in his honor. Can we safely predict that eggs will be on the menu? Have breakfast with Mr. B. from 8 to 9 a.m., then hippity-hop off to hunt for Easter eggs in the zoo. Animal exhibits will also be featured. Palm Beach Zoo at Dreher Park, 1301 Summit Blvd., West Palm Beach. Call 561-533-0887.--Audra Schroeder
Think your son or daughter might have -- eek! -- musical tendencies? Don't just stand there. Do something about it. "Music for Minors" brings you a world in which the kids can start expressing themselves in the old do-re-mi. The program introduces basic music theory in an eclectic variety of musical styles, from folk songs to world beat. Nanci Sobule teaches kids of 3 or 4 the basics of sound, melody, harmony, style, pitch, and rhythm through the use of instruments, props, songs, and creative movement. It makes a lot of sense. Children can develop a keen ear, Sobule says, and better their listening and communication skills through musical expression. The classes run for six weeks on Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. at Old School Square, 51 N. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach. Call 561-243-7922, ext. 317. --Audra Schroeder
Glop smearing, anyone?
Want to get away from it all, boys and girls? Charles Schulz' "Good Grief!" exhibit offers the unpredictable, adult-free world of the Peanuts gang, with some of the carefree pleasures that make kids' lives so interesting. Like finger painting. The Young at Art Museum understands the messy pleasures. How many grownups wish they could glop paint around with the palms of their hands? "Finger Painting with Snoopy" is for ages 5 and up. Children and, all right, parents can create hands-on masterpieces of their own from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. And Snoopy himself will be hanging around to give everyone a little creative encouragement. Good grief, don't be afraid to get dirty! Young at Art Children's Museum, 11584 State Rd. 84, Davie. Admission is $5. Call 954-424-0085. --Audra Schroeder
