Need something fun for your kids to do? There are plenty of kids activities that will be going on in November. Many of them are free to attend. Others require a small cost. Your child can participate in an arts and crafts or building event, try something new, and have fun.
Your kids can attend a free craft event at Lakeshore Learning. Each one takes place on Saturdays. They start at 11:00 in the morning and end at 3:00 in the afternoon. You do not have to register for these events. Just show up!
