About Mommy Poppins
More than just event listings: Written by local parents who love to seek out the coolest, off-the-beaten-track things to do with kids, Mommy Poppins shares activities that aren't just pleasant time passers, but promise enriching experiences for your family.
What we love: Free stuff; cool, artsy activities; urban nature, exploring nooks and crannies, and grown-up events that are good for kids.
What we skip: Over-commercialization, advertorial content and lame events that aren't worth the schlep.
How to use the site: We post new content every day and share the best weekend happenings on Wednesdays. Sign up for our free newsletter and you'll receive emails so you don't miss out. Subscribers also get access to exclusive giveaways and other perks.
Cool events: Our event calendar features awesome things to do every day. If you're planning an event, we invite you to submit it to our calendar.
Giveaways and deals: We host great giveaways and feature fantastic deals on Poppins Perks. Not only will you get a bargain, you'll be able to feel good about giving back since every deal helps fund a project at a local public school via DonorsChoose.org.
