Here is one more reason why I will always shop at Target over their competitors- Target Free Family days at the local museums. They are great and allow us to visit these wonderful museums without having to pay a penny. It’s a great way to spend a day with the family and not have to spend any money. I would say that it’s crucial at this time.
Target has brought another Free Family Day at the Japanese American National Museum. Generously sponsored by Target, these special Saturdays are filled with fun activities giving families unique ways to learn, play, and grow together. The Free Family Saturdays are held on the second Saturday of the month. I hope you can all take advantage of this wonderful opportunity!! I know I sure will!!
Here is a list of the upcoming events-

Kidding Around The Kitchen:
It is such a common problem in today’s world that families rarely get to eat together anymore.
Kidding around the Kitchen shows that families can make and eat food together without a lot of fuss or a huge time commitment.
The family food demo helps families with tips on smarter shopping, fun recipe ideas, advice on how to incorporate healthier choices when possible and advice on how to delegate tasks in an age-appropriate way. This family food demo is a “how to” get everyone involved in the family meal. Kidding around the Kitchen is for families that have full plates in life as well as wanting a full plate of food to enjoy together. It’s about time well spent.
