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.
As always, it’s best to confirm with your local store before you make a special trip.
Lakeshore Learning: Kids will make a President’s Day Mask on February 13th. 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.
Many stores will have a Love Monster and the Last Chocolate Storytime on Saturday (2/13).
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.
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.
Michaels: Kid’s club event on February 13th from 10am to 12 pm. Children can make a Valentine Dreamcatcher for $2.
There is also a new craft series coming up- Spring Break Edition. Keep little makers busy during Spring Break with a new project each day! Parent or guardian must remain on premises. Schedules vary by school district. See your local store calendar for details. The craft classes will be Monday – Friday 10am until noon. The cost is $2 per project and all supplies are included. Ages 3 and up and each session is 30 min.
Pottery Barn Kids: Stop by for Storytime each Tuesday from 11-11:30 am. Kid’s can become a book club member and get a special gift after attending 5 story times.
