My jaw dropped when I saw what the folks at Artist Home had planned for this year at Timber! Outdoor Music Festival. This is consistently one of the best music festivals for Seattle families. This year, you can expect two special kids concerts, nature painting and art classes, nighttime bat talks and sightings, stargazing and storytime. There will also be an opportunity for kids to participate in recreational tree climbing with Tree Time LLC, where kids are harnessed up to climb a huge maple tree and learn about its ecosystem. This festival takes full advantage of its outdoor location, giving kids a chance to immerse themselves in nature through scavenger hunts and more.
