Things to do in Minneapolis-St Paul this weekend!

As the snow piles up and the temps crash, we’re encouraging you to stay indoors this weekend and hunker down with crafts, a kids film festival and other indoor activities. For more inspiration, check our March Family Guide or our Family Fun Calendar.


Heartfelt | Minneapolis

Most drop-in crafts are priced between $10-$20 apiece.

Michaels | Twin Cities locations
Offers: Kids Club crafts are simple and inexpensive yet could lend a nice personal touch to a small gift. Drop in Saturdays 10am-noon during Nov and Dec to make felt ornaments, clay pot elves and other holiday themed items. $2 per project, supplies included.

ArtScraps | St Paul
Offers: The ArtScraps Reuse store is a little treasure trove of crafting materials you can browse and purchase for a fraction of what you’d spend at a chain craft store. Take your haul home and get creative!

Sat, Mar 2: First Free Saturday: Kids Film Fair | Walker Art Center, Minneapolis
It’s not always easy to enjoy art with little ones (or grade schoolers or tweens, for that matter), but Walker attempts to make it a more inclusive experience during their First Free Saturdays. The museum buzzes with art-making workshops, kid films, scavenger hunts in the galleries and live performances that stretch young attention spans and might spark conversation about the art.10am-3pm, FREE.
