Did you know that Lakeshore learning next to Kenny and Ziggy's and Gallery furniture offers free crafts on Saturday mornings? So after those mornings you finish building your free project at Home Depot or Lowe's, you can head over to the galleria area, take the kids to Gallery furniture to a) see the birds b) see the fish c) get a free cookie and d) shop for that new mattress or couch you were looking for.
Then head next door to Lakeshore for their free Saturday craft. Pick up a birthday gift, or just browse the store (and clearance aisle!) while the kids create another masterpiece. For a listing of what's being crafted this month, look here http://www.lakeshorelearning.com/general_content/store_locations/storeCrafts.jsp?ASSORTMENT%3C%3East_id=1408474395181113&bmUID=1302315681529
Then lunch at Kenny and Ziggy's, maybe that's not free, but is sure is de-lish!
