I'm here to tell you it is not as hard as you would think to find free, toddler friendly events near you in fact, you may not have to look any further than your local mall.

In a previous life I worked at a daycare while I was in college. I started off as an assistant in the toddler classroom and then became the lead. The best way to showcase the activities our kids were partaking in throughout their time in my class was through bulletin board displays. I loved creating themed boards to match the time of year and was known throughout the facility as the teacher who was constantly changing out her boards!
