So, I know we usually end up at Lowe’s for their Build and Grow activity but this Saturday we will be heading to The Home Depot for their Kid’s Workshop. The Home Depot offers free workshops for kids. At each workshop your child will get to keep their craft, receive a certificate of achievement, a commemorative pin and an apron!

This Saturday (April 2nd) they will be building butterfly houses.Perfect activity for the beginning of spring. After the house is built, children can decorate them with paint. Register here!


What’s Happening?

Okay, so I’m finally doing it guys. It’s no secret, my family and I are always on the go. I’m constantly finding new and exciting things for us to do….and the exciting part is….most of it is usually cheap or FREE! Whatttt???? Who doesn’t like cheap or FREE! Scrolling through my Facebook comments there seems to be a trend. Where were you guys at? How much was it? Will they be doing it again? I wish I knew about these events!

So……….(drumroll please) from now on I will keep you guys up to date on WHAT’S HAPPENING! I’ll try to post as far an advance as possible (as soon as I know) so that you can have time to prepare. We all know that being prepared is essential when having families and kids and pets…and whatever else you may have going on.

Spring Break is coming up so I’m sure everybody is looking for things to do with their little ones to keep them from going crazy or dying of boredom, right? And I don’t know about you guys but my kids get really antsy being cooped up in the house, especially on the weekends….Speaking of weekends……..

creative kids

Every first Saturday, The Old Bag Factory hosts their Creative Kids Event from 11 a.m -2 pm. They have free bouncy houses, make and take art stations, and kid friendly activities throughout the ENTIRE building. They even offer tables for your kids to sell their own art! In the past our kids have gotten to make their own clay sculptures, play with lincoln logs, take a ukelele lesson, and do tons of craft projects.


Again, this event is TOTALLY FREE. Just show up with your kids between 11 and 2 on the first Saturday of every month. The next event is this Saturday April 2nd!
