Since drinking green beer isn't really a family activity, consider celebrating another fun holiday in March.

March is National Craft Month. Craft projects help create fun memories for your kids. They're also a great way to keep the kids occupied on snowy or rainy days.

Locally, we have some exciting places to explore. Wholly Craft, in Clintonville is sure to get your creative juices going. (They also have great classes for grown-ups.)

The Ohio Craft Museum, is another fun place to get inspired. The museum also offers classes.

Michaels, has tons of projects on their website. The chain of craft stores routinely offers free crafting sessions for kids on the weekends.

Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, also sells lots of fun craft kits and supplies.

Lowe's stores are another spot for free kids' activities. The DIY store hosts free Build and Grow clinics for children on many Saturdays. Check out for details.

And to honor National Craft Month, we’ve got a giveaway for you: a copy of “Recyclo-Gami,” a great new book with 40 craft projects to do at home! It’s by Laurie Goldrich Wolf and comes from Downtown Bookworks. Just go to our Facebook page and tell us you want it where we ask you to tell us if you want it!
