Membership – The No-Clutter Gift of Together Time

I think, like a lot of parents, I dream of having a home that is more of a cozy little landing pad for our adventures than a storage facility for our stuff. So I have been collecting up ideas for clutter-free gifts of adventure through membership to museums and other fun places.

We’ve added a few more options this year, and all memberships have been verified and updated for 2017. November and December are the time to think about memberships, because several places offer pre-holiday or end-of-the-year discounts.

Hello Grandparents – Membership is a Great Gift Idea!

If you are an out-of-town grandparent, membership gifts are ideal. Your grandchildren will look forward to your visits so you can enjoy your gift together; plus they will enjoy it with their parents the rest of the year. Furthermore, your children will tell all their friends that you are so much cooler than the grandparents who bought loud, battery-powered, plastic toys that end up in the garbage heap we call a toy box. Trust me on this. Read More

“Pre-K Mondays” at The Works Museum in Bloomington

Attention parents who love to save a few bucks and find a cool new place to take the kids that will keep them occupied (educationally!) for hours: it’s time to pay a visit to Pre-K Mondays at The Works, a hands-on engineering museum for kids in Bloomington.

Got Preschoolers? 10 Twin Cities Spots to Entertain & Educate

Kids are preschoolers for such a short-time. Before you know it, they are heading off to school and then middle school and then conquering the world.

The fall has come where I find myself finally down to one kid at home during the day. My preschooler and I are now able to see her three older sibs off at the bus stop each morning and then stroll home to spend all that quality one-on-one time she’s been waiting her whole short life for. We’re also planning to tackle the list (below) of kid-centric activities around town that I’ve kept in my back pocket since my oldest could toddle. Let me share some of my favorite places to take preschoolers — and I’ll mention where it’s absolutely appropriate to bring older siblings as well. Please note that all of the following activities take place on weekdays. For more inspiration on where to take the entire family on the weekend, visit our Family Fun Calendar.
