How was your holiday weekend?

It was a slightly exhausting weekend at the Rockford4Kids house, we celebrated Easter 3 different times with our families AND it was my birthday. 31 years young! Woohoo! I now understand how Thanksgiving and Christmas babies feel. The holiday totally took over. We enjoyed every minute though and loved the good food.

Now we’re ready to tackle the week and find new places to play and things to do with the kids!

Here are this week’s picks for fun things to do with the kids in Rockford.

Remember, some events require registration and always check with the hosting organization for the most up to date information before heading out.

If you would like to add your event to this list or work with Rockford4Kids to be a Featured Event, let us know!
