Where Around Lansing can you Take Your Toddler for Socialization, Learning, and Play?

Two things all moms and dads can agree on is that the toddler phase is made of polar opposites: precious rewards and downright exhaustion!

Stuff can hit the fan and get real, quick during #thattoddlerlife. Can I get an amen?!

Potter Park Zoo Kid

At the same time, these busy little blessings are totally worth every bit of energy we pour out. Seeing their faces light up when they learn something new is a joy I think parents can never fully express in words.

Developing toddler minds are busy at every moment taking in new information – which makes getting out to a toddler-friendly activity or place a match made in heaven for many moms. It’s a fun way to get socialization for toddlers (and mommas) + have the kids get out some energy.

In happenstance, Lansing has many opportunities to do this. Below you’ll find toddler-friendly places to play both indoor and outdoor, activities, and events happening throughout the week.
