Snail and Hummingbird
Friday 8pm
Dallas Children’s Theater
Snail and Hummingbird are two characters that take time to listen to each other and manage to create their own music, dreams and much-desired wishes. The play speaks to the intelligence and hearts of children who discover their own way to reaffirm the essence of their identity. Adults will return to their childhood innocence. Recommended for all ages.

Home Depot Kid Workshop
Saturday 9am-noon
Home Depot stores
Make a Valentine’s Mailbox. Free, they recommend the workshops for ages 5-12, but my 3 1/2 year old did fine (and I can’t imaging many 12 year olds wanting to do this). PAM Review
