This Weekend With Kids

For someone who hasn't had more than a mouthful of tea in her life, my daughter throws some pretty lavish tea parties. And I think, if she was a little bit older, she would really love the Fancy Nancy Dress-Up Tea Party at Mountain House Branch Library this weekend. (10 a.m. on Saturday, 579 Wicklund Crossing. The event is free, but pre-registration is required. Call 866.805.7323). The invitation calls for feather boas, hats, jewelry and favorite dresses. Fancy!

Instead, we'll be spending some relaxing time with family. But if we were feeling more ambitious (and, again, if she were a little bit older), I'd also consider checking out:

Second Saturdays for Families at the Haggin Museum
On the second Saturday of every month, the Haggin invites families with kids, ages 5 to 12, to participate in art-related activities planned to complement the museum's temporary exhibits. This month, guests can take part in collaborative art projects - painting a mural and designing greeting cards - with the children from Pixie Woods. (From 1:30 to 3 p.m. on Saturday. No reservations are required, and activities and materials are free with the price of admission. For information, call 209.940.6315 or email education@hagginmuseum.org)

Adventures of a Comic Book Artist
KUDOS Children's Theatre Company presents a musical spoof. Stanley Leonardo Sappovitz is a janitor at Wonder Comics who dreams of becoming a coming book artist himself. When a set of magical pens bring the Wonder Comics drawings to life, it falls on Stanley to save the day. (7 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased on the KUDOS website. For information, call 209.507.6996). Guests are encouraged to dress as their favorite superhero.

Winter Benefit Powwow
Now in its 11th year, the annual Powwow is hosted by Stockton Unified School District/Native American Culture Center and the Stockton Community Powwow Committee. The alcohol- and drug-free event features craft and food vendors, music and dancing. (Noon to 10 p.m. at Edison High School's Taggert Gym, 1425 S. Center Street. Free and open to the public.)

Hope it's fun!
