Five Things To Do This Weekend

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

Time for another weekend!  Looking for some things to do that are free (or cheap)?  Here are five ideas for you.  Some of these are available only in Kansas City, but some are available nationwide.   No matter what you decided to do – have fun!

Spring Thing – Presto Dots
Micheal’s Stores – Nationwide
Saturday, March 27th
10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Cost:  Free

Come and join the fun for a FREE family event creating spring projects with Crayola Model Magic Presto Dots.  Head here for more details and to find a location.

 Make Your Own Suncatcher
 Bass Pro Shops – Nationwide
 Saturday March 27th & Sunday March 28th
 12:00 p.m. (while supplies last) 
 Cost: Free

Head on on out to Bass Pro and have fun with some Easter activities which include making a sun catcher.   From 2:00 – 4:00, your children can take part in an Easter Egg hunt and they can have their picture taken with the Easter Bunny while you are there as well.   You can get more details and store location information here.

Lowe’s Stores – Nationwide
Saturday, March 27th
10:00 a.m.
Cost:  Free

Head out to Lowe’s with the kids and make this fun kaleidoscope!  It’s a great way to get everyone involved — and if you are like me — a chance to give mom a couple of hours of “me time!”   You can register here.

2010 Passport to Adventure Kickoff
Bass Pro Shop – Independence, MO
Saturday, March 27th
1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Cost:  Free

This is a something that is SO much fun!  Each year, the Interpretive Site Coalition of Kansas City sponsors this event.  Families can pick up their “passport” and begin their adventure in and around Kansas City.  As you take part in various venues,  you will get your stamp.  If you visit over half of the locations (there are 22), you can turn in your passport and get a prize!    You can read more details,  including the locations, here.

Easter Egg Hunts
Various Locations – Nationwide
Cost:  Normally FREE

There are NUMEROUS Easter Egg hunts in Kansas City and around the country this coming Saturday and/or Sunday.  I’ve grabbed some of them here, but I know I didn’t get all of them, so be sure to check with your local Chamber of Commerce to see if there is one in your neighborhood.

Saturday – March 27th:
Belton Memorial Park, Belton: 11:00 a.m.
First Baptist Church, Raytown: 10:00 a.m. 
Stocksdale Park, Liberty: 11:00 a.m.
Blue Springs Assembly, Blue Springs: 1:00 p.m.
Great Mall, Olathe: 11:00 a.m.
Lenexa Christian Center, Lenexa: 11:00 a.m.

Sunday, March 28th:
Leawood City Park, Leawood: 11:30 a.m.

As I mentioned, I KNOW there are more than this — these are the ones that I could easily track down without spending hours searching.  There are also more egg hunts scheduled for April 3rd – so those will be posted next week.

Have a great weekend!

    Crown Center announced their line-up for Free Friday Night Flicks today! They don’t start until July, but it’s always a great way to have some free fun. 🙂 Yay for summer!
