Find Your Family Fun. Family Mind Body & Soul

By Melissa Shrader Editor/Publisher Fort Collins Macaroni Kid March 1, 2021


Alright! My daughter and I are going to be beginning a journey. A fun revolution.  This week I start working on my mind, body, and soul with a very special group of people. In a couple of weeks, my daughter begins the Kid's Revolution. I attended a meeting recently to find out about this movement. Yes, it's about getting kids up and moving in a new and different way. It will get their minds activated and their bodies moving. This helps grow neuropathways in their brains which, in turn, will increase not only their ability to learn, but their moods will improve greatly too.  The group will work on confidence and finding a sense of self. I'm excited to see the improvements in both myself and my daughter.  I'll be updating our journey here from time to time to let you know how it goes. 

There is always room to improve no matter where you are in your journey.  Learning new skills and ways to improve add tools to the toolbox for you and your family.  Filling the cup so that you can fill other's cups too.

If you want to know more about the Kid's Revolution check out our article from earlier in February.  Visit this link for contact information. 

Next week we will be premiering our Summer Camp Guide! Stay tuned. 

What are we up to?

Beginning January 1 and running through February 28th we will be featuring Preschools and Kids activities. 

We will be having a Virtual Summer Camp Fair February 28th - April 10th. Live and Video's released March 8th - March 20, 2021.

The calendar is slowly beginning to repopulate with in-person events and we will keep virtual events too. Many of the usual events we would normally see this year have been canceled or reimagined and will not resume again till next year. Keep an eye out I will be verifying events asap and regularly. 

We will update you as we get information. Most updates will happen on Facebook and here. 

Online Events and Gatherings that are open to all are welcome on our calendar.

 Do you have a virtual class, A virtual event, Something fun for everyone? 

 Post it on our calendar at

Don't forget to check out Facebook too for other events that have been popping up randomly since the State has changed the Stay at home quarantine to the Safer at home guideline.

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 email me as well. ESPECIALLY IN SPRING AND FALL. Now that COVID has come please comply with the COVID guidelines requested by each establishment and organizer. If you have a question about their policies please contact them directly. COVID Guidelines change regularly too so be sure to make sure that an event is still compliant and that it is not canceled.  We will update events regularly however we can't catch everything. 

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. (see the tabs on the right or at the bottom to visit the social site) 

Wishing you Love, Light, and fun for the week (and your life) ahead! 

Stay safe, Stay healthy, Love, Live and Be Fierce for what you believe,
