Grab & Go Kids Planner for March 16-20

It's that time again to look for some special things to do with—or for—your children.

So much to do, so little time to figure out just what it is you can do with and for your children. This week is easy; we've got some baby sharks, a play, a kid's cooking class and a chance to watch sheep being sheared. See what else we've lined up for you as possibilities in our Kids Planner for Los Altos this week.


Where/When: 1451 Middlefield Rd., Palo Alto.  Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sunday, 1-4 p.m. 650-329-2111

Why go: There are new animals at this little zoo, always a pleasure to see. At the Shark exhibit, there are two new swell sharks, and the Bat Habitat has three new Egyptian fruit bats.
