By Macaroni KID February 27, 2024

We're ready to say sayonara to winter, but if the weather's not quite there, stay in for some free family fun. From podcasts to aquarium animals, this week's calendar is sure to please. Check out this winning lineup of can't-miss events happening February 28 - March 5:

1. Learn About Leap Day

Calendar-curious kids will leap at the chance to learn more about this rare holiday. Get the scoop on February's extra day and much more about the science behind time tracking. It'll have everyone saying "hip hip hooray, it's Leap Day!" Feb. 29

2. Sing in the Rain During a Raindrop Sensory Class

Forget the umbrellas, just bring your baby and a smile to this virtual workshop with Wriggle and Roll. Music, movement, and together time without leaving the house. Now that's worth dancing about. Mar. 1

3. Become Your Own Podcast Host

If they're going to be on a screen, may as well make the most of it. Let the kids tune in to this workshop by Techgirlz and learn how to start their own podcast. Maybe you'll get to be their first celebrity guest. Mar. 2

Aquarium animals and math? Count us in. Take a dive inside the Aquarium of the Pacific while practicing counting at this online event. If only algebra had involved clownfish, we might have paid more attention. Mar. 5
