Lowes Build and Grow Kids Clinic: Waving Flag 6/25/11 at 10am

Lowes is having another free kids clinic tomorrow, Saturday, Jun 25 at 10am.  Kiddos will be building a "Waving Flag" for the 4th of July.  You can just show up at these clinics, but they encourage registration ahead of time if possible.  To register, click HERE.

These clinic are recommended for ages 5+, but if your kiddo is younger you can still go (you'll probably just have to help a bit more!).  We started going with my son at age 3 and he loves them!  He comes home very proud of what he has made.  My husband has been taking my son to these as sort of a special one-on-one Daddy-oldest son morning out - they go to the clinic & go and get a treat (last time was a donut), and both my husband and son LOVE these special days!  Have fun!

Grant County Fair - Discount Ride Tickets

The Grant County Fair is June 19 - 25.  Grounds admission at the fair is FREE, but as you'd expect, nothing else is free once you get inside!  They are having pre-sale on tickets for wristbands at New Market for $10 until June 20th.  The wristbands are good for unlimited rides any (one) night of the carnival.  After June 20th you can purchase the wristbands at the carnival, but they are $20!  So, I've never been to the Grant County Fair and can't endorse it, but I suggest if you are going to go and want your kiddos to go on unlimited rides to head to New Market before June 20th and save some $!

Sorry this is last minute notice, but I just learned about one of the kids Build & Grow Clinics tomorrow (6/11) at 10am at Lowes.  These are free clinics & a fun activity for parents & kiddos to do together (don't be intimidated if you're not a builder - neither am I!  They're really easy & come with instructions & help from Lowes' employees!).  You can register ahead of time, or just show up (they usually do first come first serve up to 50 kids).  Recommended ages are 5+, but we started taking my 3 year old last year & he had fun (but he did require a lot of help).   Have fun!

National Donut Day - Fri, June 3, 2011 - FREE Donuts!

National Donut Day., according to my husband a day that should be celebrated with as much vigor as his bday and Christmas, is this Friday!  See below from RedPlum for details.  
FREE DONUTS: At Krispy Kreme & Dunkin Donuts & Various Other Donut Ships Nationwide

The end of May means that National Donut Day is almost here. That’s right, it’ll soon be the first Friday in June, when donut shops large and small throw open their doors and start handing out those dough-y bits of goodness…for free!
The biggest players in the game are Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme, both of whom will once again be giving out free donuts this year. At Dunkin Donuts you’ll have to purchase a beverage to get the gratis goodie (bottled sodas don’t count) while at Krispy Kreme you’ll have your pick of donuts without any purchase. On the regional level Lamar’s will also be handing out free donut holes. But make sure to check in with your favorite local or regional donut outlet, too, as they may have their own giveaway planned.

Though it sounds like a totally made-up holiday, National Donut Day is actually legit. It was begun in Chicago in 1938 by The Salvation Army to honor women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I.

As with every dining deal, make sure you call ahead to check with your local restaurant before heading out. “At participating locations” means just that!
