Great Weekend for Kids!

Looks like a great weekend to be a kid! The weather should be good to be outdoors enjoying the spring flowers, and there are a ton of fun free activities over there in the free fun calendar --------------->

For Saturday, I have located these three events:
  • 8:00-11:30 am Celebrate Families at the Boone Middle School.  See the link for more details.  This starts with a free pancake breakfast, and then there will be a lot of fun crafts and activities for the kids, all free!  Dan Wardell from IPTV will also make an appearance.
  • 9:30 am Spring Egg Hunt at Inis Grove Park in Ames.
  • 10:00 am Lowes Build and Grow Clinic at your local Lowe's store.
For Sunday, my pick is always Sample Sunday at Prairieland Herbs and Picket Fence Creamery.  It goes on from noon to 5 pm, and will have lots of fun activities, free samples, and many ways to spend your money.

All weekend, Reiman Gardens is debuting their new theme.  It's LEGO!  If you have a Lego lover in your house, this should be a great summer to get your family a membership to Reiman Gardens.  It's pretty inexpensive, and you will more than make up for it with multiple trips to the gardens with your kids.   The details:
From 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 14th the artist will be available to answer questions, take photos, and sign autographs with the public. Then from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday there will be a book signing where you can purchase one of Sean’s books in the Gift Shop and have him sign it for you.

On Sunday, April 15th Sean Kenney will be available from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to answer questions, take photos, and sign autographs.

On Saturday and Sunday, there will be a continuous build station at the end of the Exhibit Hallway where guests can have fun and experiment with making creations out of LEGO® bricks. Visitors can “play and let it stay.”

Do you know of any more great activities?  Please contact me in the comments or email if you have something to add to the calendar.

Did you know that Groupon now has kids club deals?  There are some awesome ones today!  $39 for a reptile birthday party, $25 for 10 tickets to the Iowa Cubs--use them for any game you want, all at once or split them up over several games.  Check it out!
