  • Most Cub Scout program don't start until 6 years old or 1st grade. There is a pilot program in some areas that start at Kindergarten. T-ball may start at 4, I would check it out.

  • Cub Scouts, as Cindy18 said, start in 1st grade. There are some athletic programs that start at 3 or 4 years old. Little League requires a child to be 5 yrs old by April 1st but there are non-LL t-ball programs that may start younger. Check your parks department and library. There are often playgroups, classes, workshops, etc run through them.

    At 4 my son was in our preschool-aged youth group at our church and playing soccer. He went to library programs (some Mom and Me. Some solo) and he attended a few workshops through our parks dept. At that age my DD did our church program and gymnastics in addition to library programs.

  • If you are open to church groups, there are AWANA groups at the bigger churches all over the US. The kids get vests and patches, play games and learn bible verses, make crafts, etc.....Kinda like Boy Scouts, but with a christian theme.
