I thought I’d pull together a short list of things you might do if you find yourself without an outing for the day.
A couple of weeks ago I was walking home when I saw a package of unopened diapers lying on the sidewalk with a FREE sign. Would you know where to take them?
Thanks to Parenthoods app for partnering with 510Families.com to produce this post (and our pottery painting event of last month). We look forward to more collaborations in the future! There’s a new way to find playdates and heck – a whole parenting tribe – in the East Bay, and it’s in an app called Parenthoods. […]
It’s the best part of running this website – greeting readers face-to-face – and that’s what we get to do whenever we host a Baby’s Day Out at Brushstrokes Studio in Berkeley. Shannon Nicholls of Fig and Peach photography joined us to snap photos of moms and babies while they made ceramic gifts with footprints. […]
Over the hill and through the tunnel to grandmother’s house Small Talk Family Cafe we go. Ok, not the same ring, and not grandmother’s house, BUT there are muffins. The Small Talk Family Cafe located in Downtown Walnut Creek is a full service coffee bar, cafe, and play space all in one. Grab a coffee (and sip it […]
We are pleased to announce another fabulous event for 510Families.com readers! We have partnered with some local baby-loving companies to bring East Bay parents (and their babies!) a fun morning outing from 9 am to 11 am on Thursday, November 12. Please join us at Brushstrokes Studio in Berkeley to make a footprint memento and […]
Foodie Moms is a new parents support group with delicious meals, yum! They are hosting a special free event for new mamas (babies welcome, natch) to enjoy each other’s company in a safe, friendly space, connect about the challenges and joys of mamahood while being treated to a delicious meal that’s tastier and healthier than most restaurant fare. […]
Nestled in the 3000 block of Adeline Street in South Berkeley, you’ll find The Rec Room – an indoor family spot geared for the whole gang. From new mama meet-ups to homework help for your third-graders, they’ve got you covered (and then some). I visited last week for a Parent & Tot Yoga Class and […]
When I joined Support Group For Mothers back in 2004, I had one simple goal: to make a friend with the same-age baby. I knew I was about to meet ten women with babies close in age to mine, and I thought, “If I truly like just one of them, this will be money well […]
Looking for a place to get your hands on a bushel of apples? Well, ’tis the season. Always double-check with the farm in question before you pack up your hungry posse of children. Apples might grow on trees, but when they’re gone, they’re gone. Berkeley mom, Becky, shared the story of her children’s apple day […]
Pinot’s Palette in Alameda invited us to their grand opening event — we loved it — and now we’re excited to tell you all about it. This is not a place for the children. Their motto is: “Paint. Drink. Have Fun.” And that’s exactly what you’ll do. You start out with a clean white canvas, and by […]
Does your two- to seven-year old have boundless energy and the need to climb up, over, on, and through everything? If so, you ought to drive straight to Adventure Kinderland and take advantage of this new placespace before everyone else finds out about it! I visited last Saturday with my three- and eight-year old sons. […]
Twins by the Bay is a support group and network for new and expectant parents of multiples. Members attend meetings where they will meet other multiple parents, be invited to hear guest speakers (sleep experts!), and access a huge wealth of loaner equipment for travel and home, including preemie-sized clothing. The club is run by […]
Scholarshare and UrbanSitter threw a big party with us at the New Parkway Theatre on Sunday evening. Instead of sweating it out during the witching hour, dozens of us were toasting with chilled sangria and singing along to favorite old songs from the movie, Grease. How cute is she with the homemade saddle shoes? We called […]
We’re co-hosting another fun event for readers: You’re invited to the movies with us and we hope you can grab a few girlfriends and your pink leather jacket for the evening. Whether you’re lovin’ Summer or hopelessly devoted to the school year, every mom deserves an evening of fun. Join 510Families at the New Parkway for […]
