We don't have any kiddlets yet, so I am not up on the activities available locally. We are having our 4 year old niece stay with us later this week while her parent's take an adult trip out of town. I plan on wearing out some of her energy at the local parks during the day and maybe an afternoon movie. What other pre-school age venues would you all suggest?
museum of discovery in the river market. Playtime pizza over on col glenn.
Magic Springs is open. Mid America museum in hot springs.. (museum of discovery is better).
I agree on the Musem of Discovery in Little Rock. It's great.
Snow cones, of course :D I'd check and see what is going on at the Bryant Branch Library and Benton Main as they have a lot of different activities through the year. Family Farm is a great place that many of the schools use for field trips; also the Boys and Girls Clubs may have something for pre school age children; take her to Bishop Park in Bryant's indoor pool to expel some of that energy; there is a party place on Alcoa road that has all the blow up/jumping items; I was surprised recently how much fun our 4 year old grandson had bowling at Enterprise Lanes in Benton; a trip to the zoo in Little Rock; ride on the Little Rock rail and ride over the river; Two Rivers Park and walk over the river on the new bridge to an island; or if it's warm enough - a fun time in the sprinkler in your yard; and BUBBLES :D If it's hard for them to use bubble liquid, get a small fan and let them put the 'wand' and put in front of the fan. I was trying to mention things I didn't think others had already suggested
Thanks for all the ideas!
Today we played for nearly 3 hours at the park, had a nap on the car ride home, ate dinner at Chik-fil-a and enjoyed their indoor play area, and then had a low key night here at home.
Tomorrow will be the park again since it was such a fun time, maybe some sprinkler play while I wash the cars, and of course snow cones. That should keep us busy until nap time. Then maybe a Little Rock trip tomorrow afternoon. We shall see.
I love being an Aunt! :)
