Welcome to Family Fun Twin Cities!

We are three moms – Anne, Gianna, and Joy – each with four kids who want to take advantage of the educational, cultural, and fun family opportunities in the Twin Cities. In April 2013 we joined forces and created a family website together: Family Fun Twin Cities was born. We want to be your one-stop resource for exploring the Twin Cities with kids!

Are you looking for events and activities to attend with your family?  Check out our  calendar.

Want to find a great place to have a birthday party, a new park to explore or ideas for a fun family outing?  Our directory is chock full of options for all ages. How about quick links for suggestions to get you started finding things to do in the Twin Cities?

Do you want to have fun with your kids without leaving the house?  Fun at Home has plenty of ideas.

The Twin Cities is packed full of awesome authors and publishers, and FFTC has put together an initiative called FFTC BookHounds. BookHounds is searching for Classic FamilyLit from yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Please contact us with questions, comments, ideas or if you just need one of us to lend an ear – chances are, we’ve been in your parenting shoes more than once. If you are a business looking to advertise your service or promote your event we would love to work with you! Information about packages and pricing is available upon request.

Thanks for stopping by,

Anne, Gianna and Joy

Getting to know Joy Peters

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 5, 3 and the newbie. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and the stay at home parent. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the twin cities with kids, and I couldn’t be happier.

I'm a huge fan of Gianna's writing at Family Fun Twin Cities. I feel like I know her and her family personaly. It makes me want to try Exploring the Twin Cities with Kids.Getting to know Gianna Kordatzky

I am married to the craziest, most awesome man I know who goes along with me when I have insane ideas like traveling to Thailand for a 2 week mission trip and leaving the children home with Grandma! We are in the process of parenting four rambunctious children ages 6, 8, 9, and 11.

What you won’t know by looking at me is that I struggle with anxiety. Part of my FFTC journey is to find the joy as a mom in the midst of my anxiety.

I love writing and say I am working on my memoir. I love to throw parties and be with friends. I love to read my Bible and grow closer to God. I love to eat and exercise. I have learned to love coffee.
And I could really use a nap.

This is Anne from Family Fun Twin Cities' family. She loves Exploring the Twin Cities with Kids. They know St. Paul better than anyone I know.Getting to know Anne Kingston

If we left it up to Anne to write her own bio, it would never get posted. She doesn’t enjoy talking about herself, but Anne does love exploring the Twin Cities with her family and sharing her finds here. She, her husband and their four kids are lifelong residents of St. Paul.
