There isn't a person on the planet that would say that parents have an easy job. It's difficult handling every situation that is thrown your way, especially the unexpected things. But it was great to see recently a group of young parents sharing ideas on where to take younger kids here in East Texas. There were a lot of great ideas on how to keep the kiddos entertained that I thought would be perfect to share with you.

The question first popped up in a social media group in Lindale, Texas where one mom was just looking for suggestions on where to take her kid who is under 2-years-old. Obviously, it's easy to pick out a few places that are close to your house but this mom said she was willing to drive up to 100 miles to have some fun so there were plenty of ideas that were offered by other parents.

There Was a Wide Variety of Entertainment Ideas That Were Suggested

It was great to see so many parents trying to help out and share ideas. Most of which were around Tyler, but all of these ideas are easy to drive to and could be lots of fun for any young kids. Some of them cost money and others are free of charge. There was one suggestion that would only be open during the summer months, but I would check hours of operations on all of these suggestions before taking the trip to visit them.
