Here are some free or cheap children’s activities available this week to keep the kiddos busy.  I thought posting these now will help you plan your week.

These are all the things that are free to do this week with just a few that are very inexpensive.

Pottery Barn Kids: Every Tuesday from 11AM-11:30AM, kids of all ages are invited to story time. Times can vary slightly from store to store so you might want to call ahead to verify.  

Lakeshore Learning:  Kids will create a Celebration Noisemaker on December 27th.  Stop by from 11am-3pm.

Barnes and Noble: There is a free storytime Tuesday and Thursday as well as Saturday of each week with books, a cookie and usually coloring pages and activities. Check your local store to confirm and verify time.

Some stores will feature a special Please, Mr. Panda storytime with activities. Check your local store to see if your store is participating.

Bass Pro Shop: Your kids can participate in the Free Kid’s Adventures Activities- treasure hunts, crafts and more.  These are weekly activities and vary greatly by location.  You can head over here to find your local store to confirm activities and times. And just a heads up from personal experience, it is best to get in line early. These events tend to be very popular.

Through December 24th, stop by Santa’s Wonderland and get a free 4×6 picture with Santa.  Check your store for specific times and dates. 

REI: They offer the Family Adventure Program with various classes for children and adults.  I saw hiking and camping classes plus fun Geocaching adventures. I also saw outdoor photography lessons.

The selection and dates/times vary by location but you can check to see what your store is offering here. 

 

  

If you live near an American Girl Store, you might check out their events.  Times and dates vary.

How to Make Salt Dough Ornaments- perfect children's holiday craft!

 

I have been wanting to make salt dough ornaments with my children for a few years now and we finally had a chance last week.

The ornaments were really easy to make and you can let your imagination run with this as there are so many fun ways to customize your ornament.

We actually made two batches because I made some mistakes with ours so I will share what worked and didn’t so yours (hopefully) turn out perfectly.

How to Create Salt Dough Ornaments- so fun for children!

Free Printable Christmas Lunchbox Jokes for Children

Free Printable Lunchbox Jokes for Kids

Here is a fun and free printable that you can grab today. My children absolutely love silly little jokes- we are forever going to the library looking for new joke books and when I pop little jokes into their lunchboxes, they are always a huge hit.

I decided to put together a free printable of 8 lunchbox jokes- you can print these yourself at home or send them off to Costco or Staples to be printed for about $.50 per page.

Cut them up and pop them in lunchboxes and I bet they bring a smile yo your child’s face!  If you want to hit two birds with one stone, you could even position Elf on the Shelf to be stuffing these into lunchboxes for you as your morning surprise.
