Big kids away, tots will play

My older child started kindergarten this year, leaving her 2-year-old brother without his favorite playmate. Our family is also now beholden to the school schedule. My son and I will still go on all our adventures — and I may plan an outdoor playdate so he can practice his social skills — but we need to be home when school lets out.

Here are seven kinds of outings we’re taking that perfectly suit the preschool set, fit nicely within the school day, and land us back home in time for school pickup. Use the arrows above the image to check them out.
