Keep cooped-up children busy with free Connells Maple Lee Kids Club activity pages

The coronavirus pandemic already is altering our lives in ways that would have seemed unimaginable just weeks ago.

Instead of going to school, participating in sports or visiting friends, children will be home. And while nothing is better than having the whole family together, it can lead to stressful moments.

Keeping the kids busy is important. The Connells Maple Lee Kids Club can help.

We have a bunch of activity pages that can be downloaded for free from our website.

Children can:

  • Give a Connells Maple Lee delivery truck a fresh look
  • Decorate the exterior of a Connells Maple Lee store for spring
  • Test their sense of direction in a flower maze
  • Challenge their reading skills with a word find

What’s more, we’d love to share some of the completed work on our social media pages. Just take a photo of the page(s) and email them to marketing@royers.com.

We know these are challenging times, but we’ll get through them together. In the meantime, we hope everyone stays healthy and productive.

We look forward to seeing you in person at a future Connells Maple Lee Kids Club event.

Blacklick third-grader wins Connells Maple Lee Kids Club birthday card design contest

“He’s constantly drawing and coloring,” she said of Logan, who is entering third grade. “Legos, lots of Legos. And reading, too. He’s very creative.”

That creativity no doubt contributed to Logan winning this year’s Connells Maple Lee Flowers & Gifts Kids Club birthday card design contest.

Logan’s aquatic design will be featured on the electronic card that kids club members will receive on their birthdays in the coming year. His prize is a free flower delivery on his next birthday.

The kids club is free to ages 5 to 12. With parental permission, children may register for the kids club at any Connells Maple Lee store or at cmlflowers.com/kidsclub.

Membership benefits include a membership card, website activities, an e-mail newsletter, contests and in-store events.
