Put on your pink and head to 12 Oaks Mall to check out the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck and Barbie…
Three days into home school and it can be a challenge to fill a 12 hour day so we’re here to help! Each day, join LittleGuide on a themed adventure full of activities, crafts, nature and games that will help you and your littles have fun at home!
Let’s get started with Peppa Pig! We could all use a good belly laugh these days and Peppa, Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig and George know a lot about being home together. Here are some activities to do on Thursday and a giveaway! Enter to win 4 passes to Peppa Pig’s World of Play in Auburn Hills that your family can use once this public health emergency is over.

8:00 AM – Dress up breakfast and make Peppa Pig Fruity Pancakes
9:00 AM – Visit Peppa Pig online and download coloring sheets and activity pages, help your kids build a Den like Peppa and let them do the activities quietly in their own ‘special’ sapce.

Try all of the activities, just a couple, or binge Peppa and cuddle on couch – whatever makes your family feel happy and safe during times of uncertainty is the best thing to do.
