Find Your Family Fun! Grandparents Rock. What To Do For MKAOK Day?

By Melissa Shrader Editor Publisher Loveland Macaroni Kid September 10, 2018

Welcome Everyone!  

We kick off this week with Grandparents Day! Grandparents – our parents. We love them and so do our kids. This is the time for them to just enjoy the kids right? Well in some cases they are now parents to their grandkids. There are resources in our community that can help if this is the case for you. The Grand Family Coalition can be reached at This group has resources and help for family (grandparents, uncles, aunts etc) raising kids. If you are in need of assistance of any kind and maybe just a group setting with others in a similar situation this is the group to connect with. 

This weekend is a busy one for Mac Kid! Night on the Town in Loveland, DaySpring Dash in Windsor and Artisan you Old Fashioned Harvest Festival in Loveland as well. I’ll be at these events and handing out some samples of Peatos! I’d love your reaction to them. They are a new puffed crunchy savory snack for those looking for something a bit healthier than the alternatives. 

Saturday the 15th is MKAOK day! What do you have planned? We are writing thank you notes to 1st responders and will deliver them early next week. I’ll have some paper and other items for you to use to create your thank you! If you want to take your card yourself to your favorite 1st responders you can! If not we will deliver them for you. Last year at Artisan You Old Fashioned Harvest Festival we did Kindness Rocks. It was a hit. I think the letters will be great too! 

What’s up in September? Dayspring Dash, Artisan You Fall Festival, Pizza & Print Storytime, Loveland Night on the Town, NOCO Baby Expo, and so much more. 

Don't forget to check out Facebook too for other events not always on the calendar. 

What's up next for Macaroni Kid? Well, I'm so excited to be working with Dayspring Dash, Artisan You for their Fall Festival September 15th. I'm also working on some Halloween events too. And a Christmas Event as well. Not to mention I'm working on some great events for 2019. The Preschool & Kids Activities Fair January 26th. The Summer Camp Fair will be in March. I'm looking at doing a Back To School fair next year too. 

If you have other things you want to see Mac Kid do drop me an email. If you want to partner with Mac Kid I'd love to hear from you. 

Remember with any event, If the weather looks questionable - Always check in with the event itself to be sure the event is still on! You can call or text me as well. ESPECIALLY IN SPRING AND FALL.

If you have the newsletter you only have part of the fun! I post on Facebook, twitter, Pinterest, Instagram with holiday and everyday crafts, recipes, special offers, contests, news and new events.

Wishing you Love, Light & fun for the week ahead!
