Marble Kids Museum was teeming with princesses over the weekend for its popular Princess Tea.

Kids and their adults sipped tea, munched on cupcakes, crafted their own crowns, met with "real" princesses, and participated in a Princess Power Circuit that involved shooting with a crossbow, among other activities. Check out the adorable pictures here.

The Princess Tea is one of many special events that Marbles offers in addition to regular play in the museum.

Next up is the Pirate Adventure Fest from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., March 15. Kids 3 to 7 and their adults can spend the morning as pirates in training. Participants will learn how to work, play, walk and talk like a pirate. They'll also hear the "untold legend" of how The Blue Marble, Marbles' pirate ship, shipwrecked.

Pre-registration is required for these events. Tickets are $9 per person for members and $10 per person for non-members. The fee includes crafts and a snack. Kids and adults need to have a ticket. 

For more information and to sign up, go to Marbles' website.
