Free Kids Events in January
Posted on Friday, December 27th, 2013 at 7:00 am
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?
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 offers free craft events for kids every Saturday. They start at 11:00 in the morning and end at 3:00 in the afternoon. You do not need to register ahead of time. The events are designed for children who are age 3 and up.
