While mom and dad explore the new products, ideas, advice and deals at the 92nd REALTORS® Home & Garden Show, which runs March 18-20 and 23-26, kids will get a kick out of several fun exhibits and areas.
Show hightlights for kids:
DRONES: Visit booth #1315 to learn more about drones from "My Drone Company." Not only do drones offer spectacular aerial photos and videos, families can learn more about what other services this new technology provides. Drones can offer a birds-eye-view for special events like sporting games and weddings.
DESSERT: The Fresh Cooking Patio has a lineup of area chefs making dessert favorites like brownies, chocolate mousse and chocolate stout cake.
BOOKS: Usborne Books & More at booth #1957 has classic children’s books and other knick-knacks. Plus, SewHappy Crafts will be at booth #1849 offering hand-sewn goodies.
OUTDOOR FUN: For kids itching to escape the winter doldrums, they can find outdoor gardening inspiration at the Garden Promenade. Twelve area landscapers will create elaborate outdoor displays, featuring the latest fire pits, kitchens, waterfalls and plant varieties for children to marvel at and walk through.
SPLISH + SPLASH: Multiple swimming pools and hot tubs will be on display at various booths throughout the show.
GIVEAWAYS: Some exhibitors give away small items, like inflatable hammers and hard hats, that appeal to children. There are also many candy bowls with treats for little ones.
