I am not a 'schedule' mom. My kids schedule is kinda on the fly. Nice day? Park? Arboretum? Rainy? Bouncy Place?

Today Stinky got invited to join a soccer team at his preschool..BTW love the preschool they were out sledding when I picked him up- but anyway. I started thinking about what the other kids may like to do for activities. I found the website for Activity Tree, and was really impressed. They actually had activities in my area that I had not thought of. is the nation’s largest online parent resource for [link: kid’s lessons, classes and camps]. Parents can search nearly 80 activity types by zip code to find activity providers in their area. It features contact information, web site links, interactive maps and activity descriptions for over 18,000 providers.

It is really easy to be complacent and not get active and moving, the couch is just so comfy... but it is crucial to their health to be active kids. Really. When my kids are active they behave better and are happier, which really helps me too!

The part that I liked best is that is making kids activities and camps more affordable by offering “Get Kids Active!” Scholarships. There are two ways to enter to win a scholarship:
1) Kids Scholarships Page
2) ActivityTree Facebook Page via the Scholarships tab

Our Get Kids Active! Facebook Campaign helps parents get their kids active through social networking. Fans of Activity Tree can find and share activity ideas on our wall, pass the “Get Kids Active!” sticky note to their friends, and take fun and informative activity-related polls.
