One of the things SAHMs often ask, what do you do with your kids all day? How do you beat the cabin fever and boredom of you day in between taxi service for the older kids? For more info on today's family events in Fort Collins, Click the tab "Today in the Fort"
Cool Beans - This is a great place to hang out with your Mom friends over coffee and let the kids play! Its a coffee shop with an indoor playground. Whoever came up with the concept of this place is genius. It's a great place to hold a preschooler's birthday party too and the parents can hang out too.
Parks & Playgrounds in Fort Collins
Fort Collins literally has the best parks. Fort Collins currently has 820 acres of developed park land including 6 community parks and 44 neighborhood/pocket parks. We also have 29 miles of recreational trails that flow through.
One of my faves is Spring Canyon Park, AKA "inspirational playground" which is a bike ride away from our home and I swear it feels like an amusement park! It has a hug "sleeping giant" which even snores! In the summer it has a splash area! The one thing I don't like about it is that the trees need to grow a little bigger for more shade. Time will fix that however.

Pump It Up! It's the inflatable party zone! Good for parties for the older kids, but parties are a little pricey and they don't allow you to bring in your own food. 'Nuff said.
