East Bay Momma

A Frugal Momma Providing a Rich Childhood

A Few Upcoming Free Events

I haven’t been blogging since before the holidays because of all the holidays, birthdays and a frantic search to find a preschool for my daughter because an unexpected job was offered to me. I hope you and your family had a GREAT holiday season. There are so many fun free/cheap things to do that time of year here in the Bay Area. And, there will be much more for more upcoming holidays such as Chinese New Year which is just around the corner.

I know I have plugged the awesome Berkeley Parents Network list serve here on this blog previously. The online public archives alone are invaluable from childcare and school reviews to trusted handymen recommendations to advice on how to travel with kids in Belize. An amazing resource! I pulled a few free events they had listed in their most recent email for you all. Here you go and belated Happy New Year to you and yours:
