Fun Ideas for New Moms

Fun Ideas for New Moms

  • MOPS: Mother’s of Preschoolers – I thought my child had to be in preschool in order to join but that is not the case at all.  You can start going while you are pregnant and continue on once your baby has arrived.  It is such a wonderful group of women and I am so glad I was able to experience it for the time I did while we lived in Colorado.  Where we live now there are no local MOPS groups and we definitely miss the group we were in.  I miss that connection with other moms of young ones.  MOPS usually meets twice a month.  Some MOPS groups meet in the evening for moms that work.  The group I belonged to was a morning group.  Each session follows a similar format: drop off kids, meet your friends at your group table, brunch, speaker, craft or activity, pick up kids.  MOPS is a wonderful group and I would recommend checking it out!
  • Library Story-times – Story-time is not just for preschoolers.  The local library may have a baby story-time.  We have been doing the local library story-time for a quite awhile.  It is fun, easy, free and the kids love it.  Usually each week there is a theme the storyteller follows and songs are included.  My preschooler loves it but for a new mom it is a great way to get out of the house and meet other moms!
  • Music/Activity Classes –  We have done Gymboree, Kindermusik and various activity, music, and sign language classes over the years.  Gymboree and Kindermusik are wonderful but can get pricy.  We enjoyed Kindermusik because there was always take home CD’s, books and sometimes instruments.  We have really liked using those over the years.  We also have enjoyed taking the local community center’s classes.  They usually offer classes from infant on up.  Check your local community center, township center or workout facility.
  • Mommy and Me Yoga – Check your local yoga studio or workout facility for classes like this.  This class is usually for mommas along with their baby (infants to crawlers).  It is also a wonderful way to meet other mommas while getting zen and calm while sleep deprived with a new little blessing!
