How to find family activities in Denton County

Last November when Burb Mom was just a few weeks old, one of my friends (who at that time was one of 4 Burb Mom readers) sent me a frantic email saying, “Have you seen this?” with an e-newsletter attachment.

It was one of the first Family eGuide newsletters that outlined TONS of stuff to do in Flower Mound, Highland Village, Lewisville and surrounding areas.

Holy crap!

We did a lot of research before we started Burb Mom and then...just a few weeks into it I find that someone else has started a very organized, informative calendar for THE VERY AREA THAT Burb Mom covered.

Of course I subscribed instantly.

At that point Family eGuide didn’t have a website and at that point Burb Mom didn’t have a newsletter so I figured that this town is big enough for both.

As Burb Mom grew and as Family eGuide grew things changed.

Burb Mom got a whole lot more chatty and less calendar-driven.

Family eGuide started a website and amassed a huge amount of information and developed what I believe is   the most comprehensive area family event calendars.

Ever.

Anywhere.

So we HAD to meet Valerie Preston the brains and sweat behind Family eGuide.

We met for coffee at the Cinnabon/Schlotzsky’s in Flower Mound – a coffee which lasted 2 1/2 hours.   It was so fun to meet her.   We couldn’t stop talking, planning and trying to figure out how we could work together.

She is a very organized mom of two who scours over 150 sources on the internet, newspapers, etc. to put together a resource for families which is unmatched:

  • Weekly newsletter full of family activities in Southern Denton County.
  • Online calendar FULL of events – really, you won’t believe it until you see it.
  • Website that includes everything local to Flower Mound, Highland Village, Lewisville and beyond that families would want to know.
  • Special seasonal lists like summer camps, sports leagues, etc.
  • Kids Eat Free list.

My favorite part of the Family eGuide website is the calendarit is magical!

The amazing thing is that it is all there FOR FREE for parents in Southern Denton County.

When you stop by Family eGuide, be sure to sign up for the e-newsletter too.

  1. I teach Musikgarten (formerly Kindermusik) in Highland Village. Can I put my monthly music time on your calendar? I offer a “first Mondays of every month” free music at Kid-to-Kid Consignment in Highland Village next to the Neighborhood Walmart. Let me know! Heidi
