A Knoxville Family’s Guide to January 2020

Knoxville Family Events January

Hello 2020! With a new year comes a chance to try some new family-friendly activities around East Tennessee.  This January your little ones can build, create and even cook!  Bricks 4 Kidz Knoxville is launching “Preschool Jr. Engineers” in partnership with Smart Toys & Books. Children ages three to five will build a new project each class with their parent’s help. That’s not the only LEGO fun this month. The Farragut Library branch is offering a new LEGO club that will meet weekly for kids in kindergarten through second grade. Best of all this activity is FREE! Then you can take all that kid creativity and unleash it in the kitchen. The Cutting Edge Classroom is offering a “Parent & Child Cupcake Decorating” class. You and your child will learn various techniques using buttercream frosting. Yum!

Next you can ward off the winter chill with a pot of homemade chicken noodle soup. Cook N Craft Academy is hosting the how-to class for adults and children. Put down the kitchen spoon and pick up a paint brush at “LitARTure.”  This arts and crafts class integrates art and literature. The inspiration book for this class is “Warning! Do NOT Touch!” by Tim Warnes.  Kids ages five to eight will learn several art skills including watercolor wash, layering and mixed media.  Nothing piquing your interest? Find activities to take your children beyond January at the West Knox Preschool & Activities Fair. It’s a great opportunity to meet representatives from area preschools and extracurricular programs. Be sure to stop by the Knoxville Moms table and say hello. We wish you and your family a happy new year!
