Kids Kamp in Smaland
Wednesdays and Thursdays from June 26th, 2019, until August 15th.
11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Free, but only for children of IKEA Family members
Smaland co-workers will present information about different countries like Sweden, Australia, and the United States. Kids will also get to participate in arts and crafts, stories, and enjoy snacks – and stay in Smaland for two hours instead of one, giving parents an extra hour to shop.
Teacher Appreciation Weekend
Friday, August 9th, to Sunday, August 11th
The festivities start at 9:30 am Friday with Teacher Appreciation Day. The first 150 teachers to show their school IDs will get a FREE swag bag. For the rest of the day, our store is your campus for prizes, workshops and activities where you’ll learn the IKEA definition of homework: ways to improve your life at home and school.
That same day and through Sunday, Aug. 11, we’ll also be celebrating teachers by collecting supplies for Classroom Central, a non-profit organization that distributes supplies to teachers in the Charlotte region.
We’ll have a collection bin in our lobby and will be collecting donations of arts & crafts supplies such as whiteboard pens, gel pens, scissors, chalk, felt-tip pens, colored pencils, glitter paint, and books. All donated items will be given to Classroom Central after the weekend.
Note: A teacher went to IKEA this morning (Friday, August 9th) and reported that she received the following items in her bag:

- A chocolate bar!
