Look for a playgroup in your area. Check with local churches for starters. Go to story times at the library. They usually have a special pk time at ours. I think most do. Go to the local parks most any day and you'll find other moms and children there. If there is a family friendly bowling center in your area, that is fun even at a young age and you'll get exercise playing along. Skating is another that is available during the summer. There are lots of indoor play facilities in most areas too. You pay a fee and play for a certain length of time. It's usually about $5 or so. At home some great and inexpensive things to have on hand are playdoh (keeps them busy for hours), crayola paints and lots of paper to create on, and some outdoor water toys for the summer. You could also make some flower gardens together - let her help with the dirt and watering. Learn a new hobby while she plays alongside you. Just make sure to have fun!
