The ChillKids Literacy Mission:
Making reading fun for kids & families together!

In 2012, the ChillKids team established our print magazine, ChillKids Educational Family Magazine of the NC Triangle, for local parents, grandparents, teachers, and children, with K-5 school classroom backpack distribution in local schools in the NC Triangle (public, private and charter schools). You can also find ChillKids at places like ALL of the libraries in Durham, Chapel Hill/Carrboro, Hillsborough/Orange County, Whole Foods, TCBY Eastgate, pediatric doctors'/dentists' offices. Read about local animals, local people, and kids in the news, along with lots of fun interactive puzzles for parents and children to complete together, in print and online at

We ceaselessly research and seek child-friendly places and events to share with our readers, and we share with our readers our hands-on experience about the countless fun things to do and places to go and see in the North Carolina Triangle. We can easily list hundreds of reasons why we LOVE the Chapel Hill - Carrboro - Durham - Hillsborough - Chatham County - Triangle area!

The ChillKids team created, so that other families can more easily discover in one convenient online guide the wonderful things that make the Triangle such a great place for families. We want to make it easy for you to find all of the wonderful family-friendly places, activities and events, farms, berry-picking, pumpkin picking, festivals, museums that this area offers in abundance.

We hope that you will find the local activity guides useful.  We are continually adding new and updated information to each of our resource guide categories and in our Blog. 

Please visit often!
