Free School Fun

My inbox has been bombarded the last few days with “free printables” and craft ideas for back to school fun.  So I thought I’d pass a few along!

And there is more here, here and here.  Us?  We’re going to work on decorating a backpack this week.  I’m thinking paints and a little iron-on-fabric.  Hiding the stains to make a new backpack for preschool…


a Free Open Play Pass to KEVA Sports? Color on, Child!

We’re big fans of free things for our family, especially when those free things = family fun.   We just caught wind that if your child enters the Middleton Outreach Ministry Big Event Coloring Contest, they will get a Keva Open Play Pass  JUST for entering!   AND there are cool prizes such as gift certificates to the Mattell Toy Store  and a Brett Bielema signed football.  Awesome!

BigEventLogo_smallSo have your children color away, and bring it to the Big Event tomorrow.  Augh, you say, that’s a lot of work!  But when you arrive to drop off your submissions at the MOM Big Event kids area, your half-pints will be treated to free games, crafts, face painting, balloons, temporary tattoos, and more.    And for you a free performance by West Side Andy.  Ok, you’ve convinced me.  That is A LOT of free fun.

Hope to see you there!
