Playing Around Fairfield County 2019 {a summer play date series announcement}


Summer is officially here and that means it’s time to start soaking up that summer fun! The kiddos are home from school, it’s super hot outside, and the days are so much longer. That’s why Fairfield County Moms Blog wants to help you keep your family happy and entertained this summer. We have planned an exciting 2019 summer play date series that will give you the opportunity to play around Fairfield County.

Throughout the summer we will host new and unique play dates with a variety of activities for a range of ages around Fairfield County for as little as $7 per child. There is no cost for adults to attend, just one ticket per child which covers the activity and a snack! Tickets are limited and quantities will vary depending on the location. So mark your calendars and come play your way through summer with Fairfield County Moms Blog!

  1. I’ve enjoyed reading this blog since a friend told me about it. But, I’d love to see more activity/play date ideas for upper Fairfield county. Lower Fairfield activities are great but also pretty far drives for some.
