Macaroni Kid Makeover ~ Getting Familiar with Our New Look

January 30, 2017

Macaroni Kid has a fabulous new look and feel so I wanted to take a moment this week and highlight some of the changes to help make sure you are able to keep up-to-date on everything fun happening for you and your kiddos in Douglas County each and every week.

First, the weekly email. Each week I will be sharing several great articles and my top 10 (or so) event picks for the week. Our WEBSITE will have TONS more on it. More articles, more events, more everything. So bookmark the page and visit us each day to see what's going on and see if anything new and fun has been added.

Second, the EVENTS. Our calendar looks a little different. Right now we don't have the month-at-a-glance calendar that our old site did, but that doesn't mean those events aren't there. They are! One of the things I LOVE is the ability to search for events by date, age, and category (Free Day, Teen, Library, Crafts ... even by City). We are still in process of updating and categorizing all the events on the site, but this will make finding just what you're looking for even easier!

Third, finding the ARTICLES that are most relevant to you also just got easier. Click here for a complete list of all our site's articles, and you can now easily search for them by the categories you love, such as crafts, recipes, parenting tips, technology, health, safety, holidays, and more.

Fourth, our online business DIRECTORY is still the best way for you to connect with great family-friendly businesses right here in Douglas County. Whether you're looking for party supplies or tax advice, make it your first stop!

Finally, our newly added GUIDES tab features is where you'll find Kids Eat Free, Weekly Story Times, Upcoming Races, and more. Soon you'll find our Summer Camp Guide, SCFD Free Days, and so much more!

We really hope you love our new site as much as we do. Let us know what you think and what we can do to make it even better. You can email us anytime at
