4. For Families: If You Give a Cat a Cupcake Storytime
Where/when: Barnes and Noble, Saturday, 11 a.m.
Why go: Kids love this book series, and the story teller at Barnes and Noble is very good at using fun voices and makes the story so much fun for your kids to listen to. While the kids are busy at storytime, parents can hit up the travel section to research a Spring Break destination or the craft section for ideas for a “staycation”.
5. For Free: Adult Scrapbooking Craft
Where/when: Michaels, Saturday, 10 a.m.-noon
Why go: Calling all scrapbooking fanatics: Michaels will have a free event for adults this weekend. Crafty folks can use their supplies to make a cool shadowbox scrapbook page to take home.
