Toddler Time Thursday! Deanna's Playhouse

Today was one of those days when I had no motivation to be creative. We had nothing planned at all (which never happens) and it was so unbelievably cold outside, I knew I had to come up with something fun indoors. Well, since painting wasn't happening and I could hardly think about playing dress up all day, I had to think fast...

Then I remember I had a free coupon for Deanna's Playhouse in Holland, Michigan that expired on Saturday. So we got dressed and headed on our way. Burr, I think it took the entire 20 minute drive for my car to warm up, but it was worth it.

This was our first time here, and there we a few things that I loved about it!
-It is all open, with nook type play areas around the perimeter, so I could always see Molly no matter where she was playing.
-There was a preschool field trip there, so she had lots of kids to play with, which she really needs to practice. :)
-They had a place for us to eat our own packed lunch, so nice for this frugal momma
-Also, bonus! If you signed up for there e-mail mailing you got a certificate for another free visit!

Aren't these giant tinker toys awesome!!!

Tool sets are always a favorite of Molly's. She plays with her tool box at home everyday, so she was thrilled to play on an actual tool bench!!!

We had so much fun, and played forever. I am exhausted, I'm sure we will both be sleeping good tonight! This was so great for Molly to get to play with other kids all morning, it really makes me want to find more moms and kids to start play dates with. I never realized how hard that would be, I guess I just need to get more social. :)


  1. I love going places like this! Especially when im unmotivated and its cold out! It makes me happy to know mt kids are still having fun, despite how im feeling, haha!

  2. Looks like a lot of fun! She had fun and learned, what a great day!
