Lovers of cute, this one’s for you. Rare Bengal tiger cubs are now on view at their new home at Cougar Mountain Zoo in Issaquah. The older male, born in April, is one of fewer than 100 golden Bengal tigers alive in the world. The younger, a royal white Bengal tiger, was born in May. They’re unique in our state, and you can watch them in the play area, Wednesday-Sunday, 1-4 p.m. 206-391-5508, www.cougarmountainzoo.org

Adult $20, ages 12 and younger $10. 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Amphitheatre at Magnuson Park, Seattle. www.brownpapertickets.com/producer/4338
The big kids are going back to school — do you have a tyke who feels left out? Head to Imagine Children’s Museum in Everett, where little kids can feel like the big shots at Not-Back-to-School Days. On Wednesday, Sept. 12, pack a lunchbox and bring it along for lessons in nutrition, a craft, story time and lunch in the “cafeteria” (10:30 a.m.). The following week, also at 10:30 a.m., kids can run wild at recess — on the roof — complete with wacky recess monitors and a lesson about the importance of exercise. The event series wraps up on Sept. 26, at 10 a.m., with a bus ride to the museum from the Everett Transit Station. More info needed? Call 206-258-1006, ext. 1012, or visit www.imaginecm.org.
