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 create a Hello Sunshine Mobile on May 30th. 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.
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: Stop by on May 3oth to make DIY Paper Fans. Just $2 per child for 30 minutes of craft fun, including supplies. Ages 3 and up.
Williams-Sonoma: Children will learn how to make vegetable dishes on May 30th at 10am. Suitable for ages 5-13.
If you live near an American Girl Store, you might check out their events. Times and dates vary.
There is a special event at American Girl stores nationwide to see an advance screening of the new movie plus a little goody bag and a red carpet photo. You can call to reserve a space and get the dates for the event here. This will fill up extremely fast so don’t wait on that one.
