Aloha for keiki

The 2018 Jersey Fun Run is just around the corner. Kids can don the colors of their favorite team (or their own team jersey) and run through Aloha Stadium. In previous years the route took keiki through the locker room and across the field to live out their 100-yard touchdown fantasies. The race is Feb. 3.

And the Oscar goes to…

When the Oscars are announced I always skip the best picture nominees and go straight to the animated films. That’s the category I know best. “Boss Baby” I know, but “The Breadwinner?” How did I miss an animated movie this year? Now’s my chance to catch up. The Honolulu Museum of Art’s Doris Duke Theatre is screening the Oscar-nominated movie at 4 p.m.m Jan. 28, 1 and 7:30 p.m. Jan. 30 and 1 and 7:30 p.m. Jan. 31.

Get in touch with the land

The Honolulu Board of Water Supply is offering free Blushing Bromeliads as part of its free xeric seed of the month program. It’s nontoxic and doesn’t need much light of water. Sounds perfect for a beginning gardener like me.

Mini fun for mini me

Where have Shrinky Dinks gone on the craft scene? Perhaps parents thought it better not to encourage kids to play with the oven. But watching the scraps of plastic shrivel to a quarter of it’s size was a vital part of my childhood. Celebrate the year of the dog at Ben Franklin’s Keiki Saturday craft workshops. For $5 kids can make a shrink art dog keychain Jan. 27 10 a.m. to noon.
