Military kids can show off their creative skills and play in-store on Saturdays during Month of the Military Child at the JBER Exchange.

Beginning April 2, military kids can visit the JBER Exchange from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Saturday for military kid-exclusive events. On April 2, children can create their own sculpture using Play-Doh at the Play-Doh sculpting event.

On April 9, kids can receive a complimentary Fortnite, Dragon Ball Z or Super Mario collectible clip-on at the Excell Trading Card event. Event staff will distribute collectible clip-ons randomly while supplies last.

At the Nerf Super event on April 16, military kids ages 8 and older can pick up a provided Nerf Blaster at the toy department and practice their aim in the Blaster Testing Tent. Protective eyewear, Blasters and darts will be provided upon check-in. All equipment and eyewear will be thoroughly disinfected between uses, and hand sanitizer will be available.

The final event of the month will be the Disney Ultimate Princess Celebration on April 23. Kids ages 4 and older can play with dolls, construct a princess tiara, color at the coloring station and take photos at the photo booth during the event. Participants can come dressed as their favorite Disney Princess. Snacks and refreshments will be provided.

“The JBER Exchange is excited to offer military kids opportunities for play during Month of the Military Child,” said JBER Exchange General Manager Charlyne “CJ” Morganfield. “We’re honored to celebrate America’s youngest heroes throughout the month with four fun in-store events exclusive to military children.”

Pre-registration for events is not required. For more information, call 907-753-4422.

Military kids can continue the fun all month long with activities, drawing lessons, fun videos and more on the Exchange’s Hub page. For the full list of Month of the Military Child activities at the Exchange, visit ShopMyExchange.com/momc.
