Seasonal family fun & Macaroni Kid:

1. Back to School Bash

We had a blast at our local Back-to-School-Bash hosted by Macaroni Kid Lafayette LA!  Grandmothers, parents, teens, tweens, preschoolers, and children of all ages participated and had so much fun. We had so much fun for our entire family, and we have three generations!  My daughter is in CYT (Christian Youth Theatre) and was performing as Disney’s Merida with a few others at a Back-to-School-Bash in our city’s mall. I asked around to find out who coordinated this amazing event, I had never seen so many people at our mall.  Macaroni Kid Lafayette LA hosted this event and many more throughout the year, all family friendly and many free events across the nation!  Our local chapter of Macaroni Kid put this big event on and wow was there a huge turnout & so many free fun activities!

Hug a Friend or a Coke:

One grandmother got a big kick out of kids hugging a Coca-Cola machine to get a free coke.  I’ll admit, it was hilarious and quite a surprise when a coke would roll out after you hugged the machine!

JUDO Self Defense:

Judo for all ages
Wow, Judo self defense for all ages is awesome!
Judo teaches self defense for all ages!
An aunt was challenged to do Judo by her nephew and of course, had to take the plunge! Luckily, the Judo instructor was excellent and the aunt really enjoyed throwing him down.  Then all the nieces, nephews, and even the aunt joined in the fun to throw down this Judo instructor, one at a time of course.  Fun for all ages & a great self defense option!  (and no, that’s not me in the picture;)

Interactive Games:

The kids seemed to really enjoy all the games at all the booths and winning prizes:
  • bean bag toss & bucket toss for prizes
  • Judo self defense
  • face painting
  • Escape Room display
  • honking the horn on the kid-friendly train
  • spin the wheel to get a prize
  • coloring pages
  • hand squeezed lemonade
All of the activities were free!!  Talk about a good deal for an afternoon of entertainment for the entire family! Macaroni Kid features free family events all year long.

2. Fall Family Fun

What does your family do for free family fun in the Fall season?
Wow the back-to-school season is intense and exhausting, just go to your local store and try to get some school supplies right in early August!  Stores are packed and stress levels can get high.

3. Holiday & Winter Family Fun

Holiday seasons are so full of mid-year school exams, family gatherings, cold winter season changes, and gift shopping. This is a great time for families to help others and see how others around the world celebrate.

During holiday breaks and winter season, what does your family do for fun?

4. Spring Family Fun

It’s springtime, time for longer days of sunshine, time for going outside with the kids, and time for springing forward. Countdown till summer, schedules packed with sports, and plans for family fun.

5. Summer Family Fun

Yeah, summer is finally here and it’s time to enjoy relaxing days, family fun activities, and trips to explore.  During this free time, helping others can help kids be thankful for what they have and for being in a loving family. Summer doesn’t mean your kids forget everything they learned at school, there are many relaxing and fun educational toys and STEM games.
