One of the easiest ways to multipy your options for low-priced family fun is to check out the offerings at the parks and recreation departments in neighboring cities. Non-residents do pay more, but the difference is typically only a few dollars. Just like that: You’ve doubled, tripled, or quadrupled your options!
Parks departments offer sports programs for adults and kids of all ages, but they also offer a whole variety of classes and workshops.
Here are a few options coming up in our area:
Preschool Kids Camp for Kids ages 3-5 December 6-8 9:30-11:30 Crafts, games, and more. 35.00 for residents; 40.00 for non-residents

Obviously, I haven’t listed every activity at every park’s department. That would turn this post into a phone book (do people still use phone books)? I do hope it’s given you some inspiration! If you find a great class, activity, or program while exploring the communities around you, please do let me know! I love to feature the best of the best on Sounds Fun Mom!
