As a Racine mom of 4 kids, I am so excited to share with you this new kid on the block, Just Add Kids, born out of my passion and the need for every mom, dad, grandparent, educator, and childcare provider to quickly access timely, kid-friendly, family-oriented fun opportunities available in the Racine, Kenosha, and surrounding southeastern Wisconsin communities.  I refer to him/her as JAK, for short. Currently, the website (http://www.JustAddKidsOnline.net) provides calendar items driven by what the community wants to let you know about, and what you’d like to inform area families about.  I look forward to your contributions, whether it’s a school open house, theater performance, sports registration start dates, or a benefit event to help a family in crisis. Please submit your items from the Happenings (http://tinyurl.com/2388spe) page.

This valuable, one-stop calendar of events is only the beginning. JAK continues to grow up with the recent addition of the Business Directory (
http://tinyurl.com/2fzghe7), plus seasonal directories such as the Summer Camp, Resale Resource, and Harvest Happenings pages.  Check back for more school options, childcare facilities, recreation and enrichment programs, retail  shops, health care providers, parks, etc. listings in the Business Directory.  New content is continually being added.
JAK is one!  In celebration of this milestone, Just Add Kids is throwing an on-line party with the JAK Birthday Bash. (You’re invited to come back and join in on the party. (http://tinyurl.com/37fwyyz)

A free subscriber based weekly e-newsletter is also available.  Delivered each Thursday, JAK Happenings highlights activities and events taking place in our communities…things you may know about, and those you should know about! Each edition includes picks for the upcoming weekend, the following week, then previews the next weekend, all in an effort to make your life easier.  And mine, too!
Subscribe today to the JAK Happenings e-newsletter. (http://tinyurl.com/2388spe)

Just Add Kids recently held it’s first special event, Just Add Kids Expo 2010.  Check out the special events page for more info about this exciting gathering of moms, dads, grandparents, kids and the businesses/organizations that serve this family market.  Plans for our 2011 event are in the works.

Finally, Just Add Kids gives birth to the newest family member…JAKChat, this blog!  Not tauting this mom’s editorial skills, , it gives me a platform to rant and rave about my family, experiences, challenges, and current events.  Hope you enjoy it.
Your thoughts and ideas are encouraged…shoot me an email and let me know what’s on your mind.  And, if you’d be so kind, please share Just Add Kids with those that can benefit.
I look forward to having Just Add Kids serve you as the leading provider of local family resources and information.
