Magic tricks, sea lion science, and meditation mean there's something for everyone in this edition of MacKID picks. Cruise through the week when you check out these can't-miss events happening March 20-26:

1. Do Sea Lions Wear Sunglasses?

Going to the zoo without going to the zoo? Sign us up. It's even better when you get a behind-the-scenes look from zookeepers. Add in high energy and movement and you've got yourself the perfect stay-at-home field trip. You're welcome. Mar. 21

2. Make Science Magic with a Geologist

When science meets magic (with a few rocks thrown in), it's basically the perfect event for any curious kid. Tune in to this virtual workshop and let them expand their trick repertoire. Because the rubber pencil gig is getting pretty tired about now. Mar. 22

3. Chill Out! Yoga for Kids

Longing for a moment of zen? Embrace the silence and join this online meditation workshop for kids. Music, games, and crafts to soothe the soul. Find some calm amid the chaos – for a few minutes anyway. Mar. 23

5. Mailtime! Look Who's Got a Letter

The best times of day? Storytime and mail time, of course. Combine their two loves at this interactive virtual read-aloud from the National Postal Museum.
