i am wanting to find some activities for my son he is 3, i would also like to be able to take my 6 month along too.
i currently have him signed up for swimming lessons but that is only one day a week. i am looking for something else like story time, or gymnastics, but i am not so enthusastic about martial arts. my toddler is pretty good, he acts more like a 4/5 year old. i do school work at home with him like painting, pasta art, dot -to-dot and letters and alpha bet. now i think we need something out of the house. we currently live in odenton just outside the base. we dont get out much so i dont know the area very well. so if you have any good suggestions that would be great.

What can I do next?

There is a Mom's Club in the Severn/Odenton area.

I belong to the Glen Burnie chapter and we have a calendar of activities throughout the month. This month we have had outings at Bounce Around, Kinderfarm Park Tot lot, breakfast at McDonalds, etc. We also have playgroups that meet on Wednesday and Thursday which are grouped by ages.

Anne Arundel County libraries offer story times at various locations throughout the county. You can pick up a schedule at your local library.

When I was a SAHM, I lived for the free 'kids' magazines you see at the library or at the front at Giant or other grocery stores. Baltimore's Child, Maryland Family, Kidstreet, etc. These are full of stuff to do for the month. They list all the various activities of the local kids places. There is also tons of stuff offered at the library that would work for both your kids. Check the malls, I remember that Marley Station used to have a kids performer there once a week (free) and I think Arundel Mills and Columbia Mall does sometimes as well. Go on line and check free kids activities Odenton, MD and see what comes up. We're getting into fall so there will be tons of farm events. There is still plenty of time to take the kiddies to a pick your own farm and get some apples.

I was forever on the lookout for cheap/free things to do with my boys and with a little leg work to find some sources, I found loads of things.

You may also want to look into a moms group. There are a bunch in your area. I think MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) has a local 'branch'. Making friends with moms the same age is great plus there a great source of new things to do.

Good luck

Your local library should have a lot of little programs for toddlers like story time and puppet shows. You could also look up your county website to see what they have to offer for families. Most of these programs are free or very inexpensive.

Good Luck,

M., I run a homeschool group (you don't have to be a homeschooler) right in Baltimore County/Anne Arundel County that does a ton of fun activities for the younger kids. My son is 5 and we are going to Sesame Street Live with my group for only $10 and have floor seats! Next week we are going to the Anne Arundel County Fair preschool day. We go to plays for little kids, we do the pumpkin patch, nature centers, the aquarium, science center etc. If you'd like more information, contact me at [email protected]____.com. There is even still room for your family to join us for the fair and that's not too far from you in Crownsville. Also, the AA county libraries will have storytime weekly and they are really fun for the kids and you'll meet some adults there as well. C.

The library has story time, puppet shows and information on other free things to do in the area. Also, many of the gymnastics places are having open houses on National Gymnastics Day on September 12. What about the local parks, after labor day many of the state parks have reduced, or free admissions. Have you thought about cooking with them? They make cookbooks for kids that have easy recipes, the 6 month old could play in the in flour. Make playdough--about 2C flour, water to correct consistency, divide into 4 pieces and add food coloring to make individual colors, be sure to add a distasteful spice- I use garlic and salt.
There is an park on Dorsey RD right under the flight path of planes, my boys loved this park at that age. Go to http://www.aacounty.org/RecParks
