Kids can buy gifts for the family at the EarthWords "Chickadee Nest: The 6th Annual Kids-Only Holiday Shop" on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 1 and 2 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Hinckley Lake Boathouse & Store.
Children and parents are greeted at the door by the volunteer "shopping elves," who help the kids select gifts.
Some of the presents they can choose include mugs, jewelry, flashlights, key chains, packets of tea or coffee and stuffed animals.
All of the gifts are under $10, and most are under $5.
While the kids are shopping, parents browse the EarthWords shops. Each parent gets a discount coupon, too.
After the kids finish shopping, they can enjoy milk and cookies while a helper adds up the total and wraps and labels the presents.
Hinckley Lake Boathouse is off West Drive in the Hinckley Reservation, between Bellus and State roads.
