Save the date for the annual Kids Shop run by Boy Scouts Troop 92. At the shop, scouts offer kids a safe and fun environment to pick out inexpensive gifts for the family without parents’ prying eyes.
As usual, the boys will be holding it on the first Saturday of December. That’s December 7th from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at Woodward School (28 Cordaville Road).
[Note: That’s usually a busy day for holiday activities in Southborough. I don’t have confirmation on all of this year’s events yet, but I can confirm that Santa will be coming to town and the Library will be holding its annual tree decorating party.]
The event is a popular one that lets children shop for unique, affordable gifts for their parents, siblings, grandparents, teachers, babysitters, and even their pets.
Here’s how it works. Scouts will escort your kids through the shop set up in the cafeteria while you wait in the lobby. (You can grab breakfast, lunch or a snack in the set up “cafe” area while you wait.) The gifts they purchase will be wrapped (or gift bagged) for free by adults and scouts, so they can keep everything a surprise.
Of course, the surprise element is optional. You can also accompany your children and help them pick out gifts yourself if you prefer. Parents and grandparents are welcome to shop as well. Admission is free.
