What's Happening This Week

Find Your Family Fun in Clintonville, Shawano, Gillett, Antigo, Marion and surrounding areas!

By Marie Vandenberg, Publisher/Editor Macaroni Kid Clintonville, WI April 23, 2022

This has been a crazy week here.  My youngest daughter makes her First Communion this weekend.  It's been fun the last month or so visiting a few different local towns and shops to find the supplies and gifts that are needed.  It also means we stopped at a few new restaurants so we have a few more to add to the restaurant guide.  I feel a little bit like the Vengaboys "Venga Bus is Coming".  My big 8-passenger SUV with parents and kids galore - The MacKid bus is coming to your town!  You'll know it's us, even if I don't have a sign on my truck.

Today is Earth Day!  We have some fun ways to celebrate Earth Day! First, check out the calendar for the events that are happening. Navarino Nature Center Earth Day is today.  Meet Alpacas, buy some local honey, maybe check out the hives, and build a bat house or birdhouse.  Then we have some fun articles: Mud Masterpiece, Art Projects using Nature.

The MacKID Family Fun calendar is packed full the next couple of weeks too!  There are plenty of options. The weather this weekend is supposed to be great to take advantage of all the outdoor fun and there is still a chance to catch some of the school performances this weekend too.  There is one in Tigerton and one in Clintonville.  

Things are getting very busy very quickly and I have some fairly serious things happening behind the scenes that we're preparing for.  So, watch next week for the Summer Camp and Activities Guide. It's hard to believe it's almost that time again, but school is almost out too!  I have some fun "business cards" available for you to download and print for your kids, so they can stay in touch with classmates and those fast friends they make on the playgrounds.  (The QR code on the card links to the Family Fun calendar so it's always close at hand or phone).  If you know of an event that's happening, the best and fastest way to get it on the calendar is to submit it via the website. If you have questions on how to do that, feel free to send me an e-mail ( or message me.

I'm not doing a Mother's Day guide or giveaway this year.  I'm planning on spending as much time as I am able to with my own mom for as long as I have her. If you still have your mom, give her an extra hug, If you can. Time truly is a priceless gift and you don't know when it's going to run out.

Time for my Top Picks of the Week!

I already hinted at a few of my top picks, but I'll put them here too: 

Until Next Week,

Peace, Love, and Macaroni
