Keep Those Heads and Hands Busy!

This is the time of year when mommy and daddy brains are sizzled to a crisp grasping for indoor activities. Fortunately, many businesses in the community offer free or inexpensive workshops and events that not only fill up an hour or so of fun, they can be a great spark for a new hobby!
Michaels Kids Club. Drop in on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon to create a craft or check their calendar for free activities during the week. Supplies or a small fee are sometimes required.
Lowe's Build and Grow Kids Clinics. Sign up for their free wood building workshops. Goggles, aprons and a cute little hammer are all included! While you're there, ask if they have any scrap wood to take home. You can often get a box full for less than a dollar. Registration fills up quickly so get your name on the list. Select Saturdays at 10 a.m.
Barnes & Noble. Story time and other activities are offered throughout the month. Check with your local store for a schedule. As a bonus, when you enroll your children in their Kids Club, they get a treat on their birthday.
Körner's Folly Family Revue Puppet Show. Check out a fun show in the historic theater followed by a sock puppet make and take craft. Free with admission or $2 for puppet show only. January 30th (and the fourth Saturday of every month) 10:30-11:00 a.m. 413 S. Main Street, Kernersville.
