Love this site. Glad we talked on Tuesday….so excited to tell my other friends about it!
Any chance you can find some live Nativity activities in the Chicagoland area/churches? Thank you.
Thanks for your comment. I published a list last year and plan to again this year, but usually do that mid-December so I can verify the information before letting everyone know.
Here’s the link from last year: https://mykidlist.com/2014/12/live-nativities-in-the-near-western-suburbs-2014/. If you know of another, please let me know so I can add it this year! I always search and Google like crazy, but appreciate tips as well. :)
Have a good night,
This site is awesome! I thought up of doing a blog or site similar to this when my son was born in May 2011. I realized how much work it would be and there was no way I could do this by myself. I created some Facebook Naperville groups and am doing something comparable on Facebook but I will absolutely absolutely be referencing you from here on out on my Facebook group and creating events from your site. You just made my job easier. Expect to see a SURPLUS OF VISITS now. I admin a 5000+ moms group and I admin a 330+ moms group as well. And I just shared your Halloween link as it came up for the first time on my newsfeed last night. :D :D Sharing is caring is my motto :D :D Good luck to you on this for-profit-website. I hope your site layout continues to be the same. It seems to have less ads than other sites and mommy blogs that rhyme with Rice-a-roni. ;)
Kathy, thank you so much for both your kind words and sharing the Kidlist posts! You made my day! :) Have a great weekend.
The house in Orland Hills is up and running from 5:30-9:00 Sunday- Thursday and Friday and Saturday 5:30 – 10:30 andChristmas eve 5:00- 1:00 AM
It was super nice to meet you in person at Western Springs’ Gathering on the Green! As I mentioned, you are my personal, and a lot of my mom-friends, go-to resource! Great articles, timely posts, very friendly and useful website! Thank you so much again! Keep up the great work!
Ahhh, wish I had discovered your site sooner!!! It’s fantastic. Looking forward to using it for ideas from now on. Gonna share it on my Facebook Page right now.
Do you know of any classes for children that teach beginning woodworking, carpentry or mechanical skills? Our grandson loves to work with his hands.
We have not found any independent businesses that offer these classes, however I have had luck finding woodworking classes through park districts. I would also recommend checking Home Depot because they have free workshops the first Saturday of every month. We include them on the Kidlist calendar (https://mykidlist.com/events) or you can contact Home Depot directly to find out the project schedule and reserve a spot.
Hi!We moved to Illinois in 2017 and we have a 5 year old daughter and I was constantly on move to keep her engaged and so finding events and new places was one of job every morning then finally after I found your page and its a big relief:)Thank you for taking initiative and working constantly for all the moms .Its a blessing to have you all.Keep up the good work.Stay blessed!!
I am exploring this place so trying to find new places for weekends near chicago with 5 hr drive if you have anything on that line and any drama or theater workshops for kids.We live near Desplaines.
Thanks for your comment! We have a list of theater/drama classes here: https://mykidlist.com/kids-theater-classes/ and here are some travel articles we have done for places within 5 hours: https://mykidlist.com/category/travel/. Hope that helps!
