Grab & Go Kids Planner: Shiny Cars, Woodsy Trails and Creative Kids

Weekend activities for your kids.

For you, dear Patchers with tiny Patchers, we’ve assembled a weekly calendar of kid-friendly activities, places and events. Each week, we feature five family-focused ideas to help you plan your week. We know how busy life with kids can be, so we're happy to do the legwork for you and find things to do and places to go, both locally and within reasonable striking distance.

We also include links to help you learn more about the places and events listed. Click around to get more information like pertinent phone numbers and addresses. It is our goal to make the planner as reliable as possible, but keep in mind, some events change at the last minute.

This week your family can check out vintage cars, enjoy a free art class and get out into that spring sunshine.
