    Hi,

    Last summer I had taken my kids to playgroups. The playgroup members used to meet on Mondays & Thursdays between 10am - 12noon and it was for kids of ages 2 to 4. They had lots of activities for the kids like painting, craftworks, splash and swim in the pool, indoor and outdoor games and more fun. My kids made lots of friends and they enjoyed being with lots of them of their same age group and interests.

    There were some socializing among the moms too who came to the playgroups with the kids. It was good to share experiences about kids among the moms.

    Are you looking for joining a playgroup or starting one on your own for kids in your locality? It's full of fun with kids!

    Read this book about play groups...

    Hi,

    You may want to check this book - A Stay-At-Home Mom's Complete Guide to Playgroups.

    I got this book in Amazon, great book for someone planning to start a playgroup, gives good ideas about activities for children, how to get parents involved, etc.

    Hope it helps!
