How much for a family of 4 for the movies Or do you think a GC to please touch museum is better?

Posted by   + Show Post

Getting my babysitting families gifts for christmas.

Was going to do the please touch museum, but I know at least one family that probably wouldn't use it... and that would break my heart.

So I thought movies... maybe.

so how much should I put on each card, 2 adults 2 kids each.

or do you think a tickets to the Please Touch Museum is better?

I just loved the please touch museum when my son was younger, we were there almost every week.

and they moved it to a much larger place since then , Im dying to go back.

Movies I would say no more then $50, they can front the rest of it.

Please touch is great, we were gifted that once.  $60

Don't get them all the same thing if you think one might use it.  I would be surprised if a family didnt use a please touch pass!  It's great there.

I pay all my sitters a minimum $10/hr plus has money! My 3yr old is at daycare 2 half days after preschool, so from about 12-4. I pay $100 a week because they can't do half day payments for her age.

Well I live in NJ although I work in Philadelphia and lived there for many years.

Most of the families I babysit for are in NJ and dont really venture west much - even though its mins away.

and the one family in particuliar she has a fear of the city LOL.

Personally I would Love a museum gift card. But i have three Kids with the youngest being three, he would not enjoy the movies. I say go by ages of Kids. If they have younger ones they may enjoy a museum better over movies.
