As a Racine area moms, we are so excited to share with you Just Add Kids, born out of our founder's passion and the need for every mom, dad, grandparent, educator, and childcare provider to quickly access timely, kid-friendly, family-oriented fun opportunities available in the Racine, Kenosha, Oak Creek and surrounding communities.

Your JAK Team!

Courtney Carson, Co-owner

As a wife & mom of 3 kids I know how important it is to get out of the house sometimes, and more importantly making sure that the planned destination is one that is family friendly.  That is why I jumped at the opportunity to continue the JAK vision with my good friend Shannon.  Before JAK I worked in marketing and was even a gymnastics coach.  I love kids and I love our community!  I hope that through JAK you feel connected to our community and have lots of fun new adventures as a family!

Shannon Barsch, Co-owner

Welcome to JAK! My name is Shannon and my husband and I are the proud parents of 5 boys, yes there are 5 and yes they are all boys! With such a large family filled with kids of all ages I have turned to JAK many times over the years for ideas about what to do and where to go! I hope to help bring JAK to the next era along with my good friend Courtney and make it an even bigger one stop shop for all families that live in and visit our area!
