Things to do this weekend around Louisville - January 17,18,19

Wasn't it lovely this week with some warmer weather? I actually went for a walk outside.....with no gloves! But, it is that time of year when you just never know.  Welcome to Louisville.

It's a good thing there's so many options around this wonderful city and that you have me, your trusty online mommy friend, that you can turn to for some suggestions.  And, I don't take this job lightly. I ponder these picks and consider cost, diversity of options, weather, ages and all to make sure I present the best ideas!

If you are on Pinterest - be sure to follow this board we have created for the best LouFamFun stuff!

Here are the picks:

Friday - Crafty Kids!
In the morning, if you are hanging out with a toddler, why not hang out with other moms and toddlers at Mama's Hip? They have toddler art for $10. It's for kids ages 1-4, adult participation is required. They also have a Toddler Fun Class Card you can buy and use and it's less cost per class!

Do you have a child that's crazy about the Rainbow Loom? I was at Michael's (Springhurst) last week and saw a flyer saying they have a meet-up Friday nights from 6-8pm. It said "Grab your Rainbow Loom, rubber bands and friends, and head to Michael's. Meet new friends, learn from fellow rainbow loomers, share your skills. $5 for two hours of crafting fun. Ages 6 and up."  Before you go, pop into The Parent-Teacher Store & Toys Too! and do a little shopping - we love them.

Saturday - Learn something!

Starting at 10am and ending at 2pm, they have activities like: nest building, a “We’re going on a squirrel hunt” early childhood outdoor activity, a Squirrel Habitat Hikes along the Sycamore Trail/Black Willow Trail, an awesome Flying Squirrel Meet and Greet with Second Chances Wildlife Center and an outdoor food storage strategy game. Plus, they have a squirrel Scavenger Hunt in Beckley Creek Park. The schedule and info can be found here. It's FREE but they want you to register.

Sunday - Exercising fun!
Have you been ice skating yet this winter?  The Jeffersonville Ice Skating Rink (outdoors!) is still open (through January 26) and I think the weather on Sunday will be cold enough for you to get that outdoor skating experience but not too cold to be torture, ha!  It's open noon-9pm and details are here.  Awesome for tweens and teens especially.

Have a fabuLOUs weekend!
