Red Tricycle– is a site that provides information on different activities you can do with your children. I’m a fan of informative sites like these that encourage play, so it gives parents more ideas to get out of the house and not let their children stay indoors all day. Currently it’s not in every city nationally, but there are some key cities, and they do list national events as well.
I was told about this site through another site called Zulily, who most parents (especially moms) know about. If you haven’t heard about this site, Zulily is a great discount site for baby, kid items and clothes, and home decor, and women’s fashion and accessories. Even though I don’t have any kids, I like perusing the adult side for shoes and home decor. The toys/items on this site aren’t toys that you would find at typical retailers. Also if you recommend someone to join Zulily, you receive 20$ credit once they order something, so not bad!
Here is info from their site:
Our mission is simple, to help parents have more fun with their kids.
We offer ideas for cool things to see, eat, make and do with your kids in your neighborhood. Each weekday, we deliver must-have recommendations for hip people who happen to be parents too, whether it’s a kid-friendly food truck crush, a street festival that accommodates strollers, or a christmas tree farm that offers free hot chocolate and crafts.
We know you’re busy (we’ve got kids too), so we wade through the multitude of happenings to present a small, well-edited list of events, services and products that are really worth your time.
We also love hearing your suggestions (know a great camping spot? A kid-friendly coffee shop or hiking trail? Let us know). We’ll do our best to organize the information in an easy-to-skim format, so you can spend less time in front of a computer screen and more time on things that really matter –like making snow angels or digging for buried treasure.
Now get out of here. Skedaddle. Go build a sand castle. Or fly a kite. Get Out and Play!
