It's been a long winter for some of us in northern climates, but it looks like it's finally spring and time to get ready for outdoor activities.
Here’s part of my spring to-do list to help you get ready for kid-friendly outings.
- Check “spring” jackets and rain coats to see if they fit.
- Check out last year’s rain boots and try them on.
- Locate ball caps and sun hats.
- Spend some time with your kids trying on summer shoes, t-shirts, and shorts to ...
Summer Color Wreath
What you need:
- cocktail umbrellas (check party supply stores)
- Styrofoam wreath
What you do:
Easily poke the toothpick umbrellas into your wreath form. MORE is better in this case! Use a variety of sizes for interest!
HAVE fun! : )

NW Austin - Westlake and Central Austin
Children are always fascinated with LEGO® bricks and at Bricks 4 Kidz® NW Austin - Westlake and Central Austin they thrive to enhance your child's education while they play.
The program at Bricks 4 Kidz Austin Area provides a unique opportunity for students to be introduced to principles of science, technology, engineering and mathematics while participating in “hands on activities”. These activities are designed to trigger a child’s lively imagination and build their self-confidence through the use of lab-focused exercises utilizing LEGO® bricks to build models created by Bricks 4 Kidz®. Participants will also experiment with their own inventions, play games, and learn cooperation and responsibility through teamwork.
Please explore the Austin Area Bricks 4 Kidz website to locate information about programs that they offer; however, if you don’t find a program that works for you, contact them directly and they will do their best to customize a program to fit your needs.
