If your baby or toddler is in a Mother’s Day Out program or preschool that takes the summer off, consider getting the parents’ email addresses and coordinating your own weekly playgroup with them over the summer.
It’s a great way to keep your child interacting with kids their own age and a way for you to meet other moms. Get creative in your playgroup locations. Sometimes it’s too much pressure to host in your own home, so compile a list of possible activities with help from the other moms and make a schedule for the entire summer. You will be amazed at what new places you will be able to discover with your little ones.
