ok quick stupid queston: every year on vacation we do some sort of diy thing for a souviner. We painted pottery, made build a bears, built sand castles, made braclets and sea shell jewerly.

The kids are now teens (16, 15) and we want to do something like this in dc. Any suggestions? So there not girly girls, are into music and nightmare before Christmas and funko

 

Also the 16 year old would like to know how likey she is to find a single stall bathroom. She dresses and acts male, and dosn't like using the ladies room.

so were going to be staying in silver springs. I know that dc only has a build a bear open at game time. I need to know if we can take the dc metro to a build a bear in another city. We are totally willing to walk or take a taxi from the last metro stop if nessacary

There is no Build A Bear easily accessible solely by Metro rail. There is no location in DC proper but there is one in Westfield Montgomery (accessible by bus from Medical Center Red Line station) in Bethesda, Maryland. There is another location in Fair Oaks Mall in Fairfax, Virginia but you'd have to cab it from Vienna station on the Orange Line.

Of the two options I'd probably go to Bethesda check out the mall websites for directions (I think there's a bus from Grosvenor Red Line station which is more time on the bus but a shorter train ride from Silver Spring.)

random question again:

Where is there a ikea I can get to by metro or bus? I need a new set of klas kids plates! On that note: will my dc metro pass work for the busses there?

Best shot of that is College Park. You can take the Green line to Greenbelt, and probably catch a bus from there. If not, it's a really short cab ride.

The main scenery is the eight to ten lane Capital Beltway. You would have to walk thru a major, heavily trafficked interchange with Route 1 that has multiple on and off ramps of lanes merging.
