We got to have a few Spring-like days this week. Mother Nature was just teasing us and is sending us rain for the weekend.

If you’re looking for something to do indoors, head out to the Rockford Crunchy Ladies Natural Living Expo on Saturday! With vendors like Tinkergarten, Luna Movement, and Tastefully Healthy Rockford you are sure to find something for your family! Kids will be able to make their own tea bags and you can learn more about how you and your family can lead a more natural lifestyle.

Here are this weekend’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!
