All your family fun Apr 17-23

April 16, 2024

Need a little inspo for filling spring days with fun? We've got you covered with five great events heading your way this week including a cooking class, DIY building workshops, and even some ways to celebrate Earth Day. Family fun is easily done thanks to this edition of MacKID picks. 

1. Crafting + Electronics = Craftronics

Say goodbye to gluesticks and hello to next-generation craft projects at this virtual workshop. Kids will learn how to combine circuits with crafting to create epic designs like robot bugs, moving origami swans or light up LED bracelets. Craft time just got way more interesting. Apr. 18

2. Explore the First Amendment

We the people are in for a treat at this interactive online program all about the First Amendment freedoms. Far from a boring civics class, this workshop will use primary sources and historical pros from the National Archives to get kids hyped about the Bill of Rights. Talk about life, liberty and the pursuit of educational happiness. Apr. 19

This free workshop gives them a chance to hammer stuff and make noise in public, plus you come home with a cute project to display (or give to Grandma). What could be better? April 20

4. Make Banana Chocolate Pancakes with Your Little Chef

Sunday morning breakfast just got tastier thanks to this virtual cooking class. Your kids will learn to create some delish pancakes on their own. Breakfast in bed this Mother's Day might actually be edible. Apr. 21

5. Celebrate Earth Day

Shout out to the planet, it's Earth Day! Hug a tree, pick up some litter, and check out these easy ways to become a greener family. It's always a good day to love your mother, Earth that is. Apr. 22
