Macaroni Kid is a free email newsletter full of local events for families. Through this newsletter, people can access information about family-friendly events that are happening in their towns. If you sign up to receive the Macaroni Kid free newsletter, there is no need to consult the newspaper or try to find out from friends when kid-friendly activities are happening. It's all online and available in your email box once each week. And best of all, it's a free service.

Moms in different towns can sign up to be a Publisher Mom, local research events, and send it out in a newsletter they publish once each week. The newsletter is already formatted, so it looks the same each week, but the events are updated. Are you a Mom or Dad, Grandma or Aunt who wants one central place to go to find out all the kids and family activities going on in your community? Well, Macaroni Kid is your answer. Not only does it include local fairs, festivals, and holiday events, but library events, and Moms Club events as well. There is a calendar that you can click on, and see things a week or two in advance, or you can just click on activities you are interested in participating in with your children over the next week, and your own personal event calendar can be printed off the site for the upcoming week. This helps keep you organized and ensures you won't miss that special event you were looking forward to sharing with your children.

The Publisher Moms usually include other articles like activities to do with kids, sometimes a book review, and articles that they write themselves. If a reader is looking for a particular business in the community, there is space for businesses to put ads and a subscriber can just click on the directory and find a local business, including doctors, dentists, kids classes being offered, etc. This is a great addition to the newsletter, especially for new families to the area.

There's also a listing in a side column for national newsletters, which include Macaroni Kid Travel Ideas, Macaroni Kid Eats for food ideas, Macaroni Kid Military for military families and a Family Fitness newsletter. If you subscribe to a local Macaroni Kid newsletter, you have the option to subscribe to any of those other newsletters, or none of them, and can read any of the articles in those newsletters from the local Macaroni Kid newsletter.

To find out if your town has a Macaroni Kid newsletter, go to the main website at, and in the left-hand column you will see a space that asks for your state, and then all the towns in that state that have the newsletter. If your town is listed, click on the link, and read all about the local activities. If you want to get it sent to your mailbox weekly, click on subscribe and you will get it for free.

If your town is NOT listed and you want to find out about becoming a Publisher Mom in your town, click on the "Become a Publisher Mom" across the top of any of the local newsletters, the National Macaroni Kid website.

If you become a Publisher Mom and publish your own Macaroni Kid newsletter, you can connect with other Publisher Moms who are on Linked In, and be in touch with each other and give each other ideas.

If you are a mom, who is looking to earn money from home so you can spend time with your children, becoming a Macaroni Kid Publisher mom might just be the answer for you. Although receiving Macaroni Kid is free for moms who want to sign up to receive it, Publisher Moms must pay a fee for the privilege of having their own Macaroni Kid business. BUT they can earn money through finding businesses who would like to advertise in their Macaroni Kid newsletter. Sometimes advertisers will offer free admission tickets to events in your area instead of monetary payment, which means fun for your whole family.
