It’s hard to believe that KZOOkids is turning 4 years old this month. We officially kicked off our website in the fall of 2013 and we’d like to thank our entire KZOOkids community for growing with us!

KZOOkids is more than just a website… we’re a community!

    KZOOkids is my go-to guide for all the events around town. Being a single mother to 4 1/2 year old twin boys I’m exhausted and don’t have a lot of time or energy to put into researching what there is to do each weekend. But with this website right at my finger tips, Weekend Picks is always my quick guide! I love it! Thank you!

    I love reading it for things to do with my little guy. I am from Battle Creek. I know some things are included in our area too, just wish we had a similar website for Battle Creek and it’s surrounding areas too!

    I love all of the activities you post. I am a caregiver for 4 foster kiddos. Plus I have 2 of my own. I can always count on finding something to do when I check out your page. Bookbug is a favorite stop for our family!!! Thanks for helping me keep my kiddos safe, and busy doing with your awesome list of activities!!
