Weekend Planner

Last year's Toys For Tots donations

What We're Doing:
  • Holiday Promenade in the East Village (Des Moines)
  • Toys For Tots shopping 
  • 2 birthday parties
  • Seeing the Trolls movie (the kids have been dying to see it and with the weather starting to seem more like November, I felt it would be okay to sit in a movie theater)
Things To Do:

  • Holiday shopping. Start before the crowds....kind of, since the stores seem to already be bustling
  • Go through clothes, toys, shoes, etc. for donating
  • Grocery shopping for canned goods, diapers, formula, etc. for local food pantries
  • Make a turkey crafts (here's some ideas that the kiddos love)
  • Play at a park. I love parks when it's a little bit chilly outside because that usually means we have the park to ourselves

Things To Do In Central Iowa:

  • Downtown Winter Market
  • The Boxcar Children at the Des Moines Community Playhouse
  • 3rd Annual Warm Kids Campaign at Bass Pro Shops
  • World Food Prize Hall of Laureates Open House. We went last weekend and loved it!
