Summer Family Fun: Beat the Heat with Cool Outings

I don’t know about you, but I am really feeling the heat. It’s that time of year when even the most hearty Minnesotans melt.  We try to remember what it’s like when it’s negative degrees in January, but it’s no use. While there are some you thrive in the heat, I know there are many of us who could do without the heat and humidity.

So FFTC is here once again, helping you to stay cool during this hot summer days.

Meet the Parks: Teddy Bear Park in Stillwater, Minnesota

If your plan is to make a day of it in Stillwater with kids, make sure to include a stop at Teddy Bear Park. I did just that not long ago, expecting the park to appeal mainly to my preschooler. And yes, she very much liked the train car play equipment and the climbing structure made to resemble the Stillwater Lift Bridge. She also got as cuddly as one can get with a giant granite teddy bear.

The pleasant surprise was how much my 5 and 7-year-old daughters enjoyed the engineered wall of cliffs that forms the southern boundary of the park. They loved the scooped-out little seats, tiny stairs built into the rocks, and, of course, flinging themselves off the cliffs into the sand more times than I could count. My two ground rules: no jumping off anything higher than Mom’s head, and no sprained ankles before the Minnesota State Fair!

Find this sweet little park at 216 4th St N, Stillwater, Minnesota.

Hours: 8am – 8pm daily, mid-April through mid-October


10 Spots for Outdoor Summer Dining with Kids in the Twin Cities

Can we get a collective sigh of contentment and relief for outdoor summer dining with kids?

Even with kiddos far past the baby and toddler years, we at FFTC are crazy about the Twin Cities eateries who understand that dining out with children can be the opposite of a relaxing meal. Summer brings patios and green spaces, places where it’s generally OK to turn up the volume just a little, even corners where kids can create just a little distance from the adults. And as these locations are outdoors and seasonal, they are without exception within walking or easy driving distance to countless classic Twin Cities attractions. Here are ten of our summer favorites:

Family Fun: Daily Life on the Farm at Eidem Homestead

The historic Eidem Homestead, a turn-of-the-century farm out in Brooklyn Center, was one of the places that had languished on my master summer to-do list for several years. We finally made it out last month to check out “Daily Life on the Farm”, this season’s program at the historic site. It’s a fun chance for kids to get hands-on in the barn, the farmhouse, and in the field.
