Family Fun

On Saturday, February 23 the University of Texas is having an Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day. Students in first through eighth grades and their parents or educators are invited to UT for an afternoon of FREE engineering fun. Parents will remain with the students throughout the event. Go here to register.  For more information, including parking information visit the Cockrell School of Engineering website

Family Savings

Just Between Friends is having its next sale in Pflugerville Thursday February 21st through the 23rd at the Pflugerville Lion’s Club. If you’re not familiar with this sale it’s a great way for you to get rid of some of the baby and maternity items you no longer need or store up on items you might need if you’re expecting or have children. There is a $2 admission fee on the first public day of the event, Friday, February 22nd. However, if you are a first time parent or a teacher, there is an exclusive presale on Thursday, February 21st from 6pm to 8pm allowing you to shop before the sale is open to the Public. If interested, sign up online www.pflugerville.jbfsale.com to receive your presale pass. For more details and to sign-up on the mailing list, please go to www.pflugerville.jbfsale.com. Thanks Cheryl for the tip!

Google is holding its annual Doodle for Google program which gets kids in kindergarten through 12th grade to draw their best doodle using the theme, “My best day ever.” There are thousands of dollars in scholarships and the schools where the kids attend can win money too. The deadline is March 22nd. Learn more here.

Remember to check out the great family ideas compiled every weekend by Free Fun in Austin.com.
