As East Tennessee begins to slowly reopen, more events are filling our Knoxville Moms calendar. Many organizers are taking social distancing to heart and coming up with creative events families can enjoy safely. Park West Church is hosting a “Daddy-Daughter Date Night” with a new spin. Participants can come to the church for a picture, cupcake and an activity packet for a date night out on the town! Advanced registration is required. The great outdoors is always open! The Tennessee Wildlife Federation is hosting a “Learn to Fish” clinic. Children ages 9 to 16 will learn more than how to bait a hook. The clinic will include how to identify different fish species, wildlife conservation principles and more. Parents will be active participants in the clinic.

Families can hop on their bikes for a rolling tour of Knoxville thanks to the Printshop Beer Company who is hosting “Explore Knox” rides. Organizers say they’re suitable for beginners to advanced cyclists. No culinary experience required at The Cutting Edge Classroom’s “Parent-Child French Macaron” class. Learn how to make the colorful meringue confections found in patisseries. You’ll leave with a box of your very own handmade macarons. C’est magnifique! The Cutting Edge Classroom is following new protocols from the health department to ensure a safe cooking experience. Speaking of safety, East Tennessee Children’s Hospital is offering “Safe Sitter” courses starting in June. Participants will learn correct babysitting techniques, emergency responses and how to run a babysitting business. With so many great activities to choose from, Knoxville Moms wishes you and your family and safe, healthy and fun month!
