  • The local libraries usually have story telling time for that age group. Also swimming lessons would be great.

  • I agree with the library. We live at the ones here. Also check your local comm centers and moms groups in your area.

  • If you have any land you could start a small garden together to weed and watch grow. Start taking walks or find a safe place to ride bikes together (or rollerskate). Start a project like making your own wrapping paper or building a kite. I know classes get a little nutty but there are lots of free one day activities at libraries, museums, nature places. Start perusing the local paper and find what activities you can find. Go shopping at thrift stores to make a dress up box. Find an inexpensive place to get a pool or beach membership nearby or get one of those huge kiddie pools or a sprinkler for the backyard. Come up with some recipes so you can make dinner together.

  • My 4 yo is going to take swimming lessons, and go to pee wee camp (only a few week program). We like to spend summer days going to the park, setting up the sandbox and pool, going to the library, riding bikes, going to the zoo, six flags, the water park, museums, etc.
