A Moving Checklist for Kids!
Good sources for fun
There are many sources for finding out about fun and educational activities for kids around Alexandria, Kingstowne, Springfield, Lorton and the Washington D.C. metro area. A few of our favorites are:
Every Friday in the Washington Post is the Weekender. It is a section devoted to what's happening that week and the upcoming weeks in our area. They have festivals, plays, movie reviews and usually an article on side trips to take close by that are a little out of the ordinary. They have the schedules for interactive displays at museums and much more. Check it out!
There is a magazine called Washington Parent. It has a ton of info on everything from the variety of summer camps to kid's book reviews, discounts on circus tickets, local day adventures, kid's theatre and music opportunities just to name some. Each month they give you plenty of stuff to get through the month with a lot of fun times. They are also online at www.WashingtonParent.com
Click on our Parks and Recreation section and get the links to all the local parks. Those of you new to our area will be amazed at all there is going on. There is every sport you can imagine in addition to learning new things and making new friends. We need a nap just thinking of all the things you'll be getting a chance to do!
