Here is a list if some things we do in our area (Alexandria, VA). Please feel free to share your ideas - I'm always up for a new adventure!
Fort Ward - Playground and walking path
At Fort Ward with her buddy, Elaina. Elaina's mommy and I walk a few laps and then the girls get to play - win win!
Four Mile Run - Playground and walking path
Barcroft has the best little round spiny thing and see saw!
Drew Park (splash ground in the Summer!)
Long branch nature center - open Tuesday-Saturday 10-5.
Chinquapin Soft Play Room ($4/kid) and Indoor Pool
Chillin' with Viv at the Soft Playroom. It's nothing amazing, but it does have a ball pit!
Barcroft Rec Center Playgroup ($3/adult)
It's just a big gym with toys, but perfect for chatting with mom friends while the kids play!
Alexandria Beatly Library Story time
Shirlington Library Story time
Air and Space Museum - Planetarium Sesame Street Show and Story time - various days, but both happen on Fridays!
Holding hands with her pal, Corrine after story time.
Boogie Babies - kid concerts at the Eastern Market $5/kid
Van Dorn Mall - indoor play area and train rides (train is $4/kid)
Behind our condo complex is a little duck pond and nature trail we walk. LE always finds a stick to carry around and bang on the ground. This is probably one of her favorites.
We also love to do play dates with our friends and neighbors!
Coloring with chalk with her "big kid" friend, Audrey.
Playing dress up with our neighbors, JJ and Delaney.
Things I hope to try in the next few weeks:
Natural History Museum - free butterfly exhibit on Tuesdays
American Indian Museum - Family days and play area from 10-12 Monday and Wednesday
Lebanese Taverna - kids concerts on Wednesdays at 10am in Arlington
Central library Spanish speaking story time in Arlington
Happy play time to you all!
I'd love to hear your ideas and what you like to do with your toddlers!
