Things to do in April with your Family

The weather in April in Lake Country and Waukesha County, WI is tricky.  There is no way to know what the weather may be, so many events come with the disclosure, “rain, snow, sleet, or shine”.  And Wisconsinites are tough – we get out and enjoy the month no matter the weather.   April 10th in 2010 was 64 degrees, in 2016 April 10th was 46 degrees and April 10th, 2017 was 73 degrees. So your guess will be as good as mine about this year!

April brings Easter (most years), Earth Day, Taxes, Arbor Day and time off of school for Easter and/or spring break.  April starts off with a joke (April Fool’s Day).  April boasts National Siblings Day, National Pet Day, National Pretzel Day and more! It is National Autism Awareness month.

3. Get involved with Celebrating Earth day

Earth day is Friday, April 22nd, 2022.  Our beautiful earth should be celebrated day in and out, but April is a month to give a deep look into ways we can change our habits to better the earth!  We have an Earth Day Guide that talks about 8 ways to celebrate Earth Day.  You can check out the guide by clicking the link below, but here is one way: Shop!  Shop?  How does that support the earth, you may ask?  When you buy used textiles, you are loving on the earth. Did you know that $127 million of clothing winds up in landfills each year after being worn only once?  Preloved is reloved. Shop the Divine Consign Event in Hartland this month. During your birthday month at St. Vincent De Paul, you get 25% off your order as well!
