Fun Philly Area Summer Camps for Preschoolers

For working parents of preschoolers, finding a summer camp can be particularly difficult because most places only accept campers who are age 4 or above. Whether you have to work over the summer, or you just want to send your toddler for some fun, we've got lots of great summer camps for you. Here's a list of places that have special camps for children ages 3 and sometimes under. Have older kids, too? Check out our Summer Camp Guide and posts about camps for art, STEM, and sports, too.

Easter Bunny Brunch, Lunch, and Dinner for Philly Families

To celebrate the season of spring, Philly families may want to offer their children the experience of visiting with the Easter Bunny. Throughout the Delaware Valley, there are many opportunities to do just that. Kids have a chance to enjoy brunch, lunch, or dinner with the bunny at a variety of locations including gardens, zoos, boats, and restaurants. Some events include photo-ops, egg hunts, or even a train ride!

Take a look at some of our favorite events happening this year. Be sure to book your reservation in advance as many of these opportunities sell out.

Baby Animals and Easter Farm Fun for Philly Kids

Spring is always a fun time of year to visit local farms in the Philly suburbs—plants are starting to grow, baby animals make appearances, and Easter celebrations abound. Visitors may find egg hunts, hayrides, and photo ops with the Easter Bunny at some of these local events. Whether or not the groundhog was right about spring, all this fun on the farm will certainly remind families that real springtime weather is just around the corner.

Be sure to check our event calendar for even more Easter and spring break activities.

Crafty Kids: Philadelphia Classes & Workshops for Creators

Making things with your hands is one of those activities where patience, focus, and determination result in a tangible and potentially usable object. Craft classes are another opportunity like dance, technology, theater, or writing classes to give kids a creative way to express themselves. Here are awesome places where creativity is valued and encouraged and will result in bracelets, skirts, ceramic bowls, wood boxes, or an artwork that any parent will be happy to display.

Spring Consignment Sales for Philly Families

As all parents know, children outgrow their clothes at an alarming rate. One way to avoid breaking the bank each season on a new wardrobe is by shopping consignment sales. Each Spring and Fall, these weekend mommy markets pop up all over the Philadelphia area and offer families a great way to buy gently used clothes, shoes, toys, baby gear, and other items at a large discount off retail. Consignment sales are also an opportunity to sell outgrown items for some extra cash.
