For the Kids: Family Crafts, Tea, Fairs

Stay local with the family this weekend

Each week, we'll give you the info on the best family activities or events for the week. 

You're time-pressed enough, so we're happy to do the research and find the best things to do and places to go, both locally and within reasonable striking distance.

Look for the kids' planner each Wednesday, and help us build the planner with your own suggestions and tips‚ just add them to the comment box. We want to hear from you!
