14 Things to do in May with your Family

Hello May! Hopefully, the April showers (and snow) are over, and we can all smell the beautiful May flowers! I love May, because the weather is turning warmer, and it means summer will be here before you know it. Before wishing summer to be here, though, let’s enjoy all the fun that May has to offer and do May right right here in Lake Country and Waukesha County. Find 14 things to do in May with your family below.


On Saturday, May 18th from 12pm – 2pm Birch and Banyan will be hosting a Mental Health Resource Fair in their parking lot. The hope is to help take away the stigma of mental health conversations. Many of us could use a little help in the day, whether it’s an intensive treatment program, or just taking more time for self care, or anything in between! Come learn about the resources we have in our community to help yourself, your children, your loved ones, etc.! The organization list includes therapy, psychiatry, experts in nutrition, women’s health, youth and adolescent behavior, meditation, yoga, sleep hygiene, art therapy, and more!


This will be a casual event, zero judgment. Come grab a coffee and wander through the booths. There isn’t a single person out there that couldn’t use a little time for yourself!  

14 Things to Do in May 2024

Faithful Farms May Event!

  • Wiggle Worms – Mother’s Day on May 11th at the Club at Lac La Belle in Oconomowoc

Wiggle Worms
The day before Mother’s Day our littles will have the opportunity to spoil mom, bonus-mom, nana… and create three sweet gifts for her. She will be given a mom-osa 🥂 and her littles can assist her at a 💅 nail-bar, complete with a soak, nail stickers and hand cream! (If you can come without polish on that would be great 😉)
We will begin with a devotion, story, yoga, music and wrap up with games!
Mama’s should leave feeling loved with special gifts in toe ❤️

Busy Barns Adventure Farm happily invites you and your family to join in for their Barnyard Adventures and Lambing & Kidding Days.  Make plans to spend the day on the farm and create memories with your family and friends.  Spring brings the birthing of all the new baby animals in our petting farm.  Come get some cuddling time in with the cutest little lambs, goats, bunnies, kittens, chicks, and all the lovable critters.  Grab a little animal feed and you will literally have them eating right out of your hand.  Then take a leisurely stroll around the farm and partake in the 40 plus activities in our Acres of Adventures.  Play in the straw, race each other on the obstacle courses, test your agility in the ropes maze, dare to defy the giant tunnel slides, spin around in the hamster wheels and so much more.  Stomach starting to growl?  Grab lunch and a tasty treat. Their warm, scrumptious Apple Cider Donuts are back this spring by popular demand.  Get them while they last.  Yummy!
