Creativity lesson(preschool activity)Each month, there are a bunch of fun (and free) events for kids. If you don’t know where to look, you might miss them. January is a great time to try something new. Check out a story time. Visit a store for a craft event. What will your kids have fun with?

Story Time
Does your child love to have stories read to him or her? There is more than one place to find a free story time event. Some Barnes & Noble stores offer one (or more) story time events each week. These are free to attend, and do not require registration ahead of time.

Typically, the story time events are intended for children who are between the ages of 2 and 7. Use the Barnes & Noble Store and Event Locater to find out when the store near you offers story time.

Your local library might also offer a free story time. Give them a call and ask. Some libraries offer story time, a baby time, and a time for young children to get involved with music. What does your library have?

Every month, LEGO stores offer a free mini model build event. It is for children who are between the ages of 6 and 14. On January 7, 2014, the featured mini model will be a snowplow. The event will begin at 5:00 in the evening. This is offered “while supplies last”, so you may want to get there early.

Lakeshore Learning

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
