Big Binder is billed as a blog is for anyone who is looking for activities to do with young children in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. The author writes:
An almost frightening lack of ability in the crafting area forced me ‘outsource’ fun things to do with my kids. Fortunately, I live in a community with more than enough to keep my family busy.
I started keeping a big binder of things to do around town with my kids, and began sharing the information with my friends. In a single day, I was asked by six different people to start “a website or something” with this information. As “Finding Stuff” is an unusual talent and doesn’t look good on a resume, I decided it was time to do it.
Do it she has done. I don’t have young kids (any more) but I know that if I did, I’d be a regular at this blog, which has a number of regulars that add their thoughtful comments. With everything from thoughts about eating in Menu Plan Mondays (don’t serve snack foods for snacks, never refuse a request to buy fruit) to kid-friendly excursion ideas such as Donuts, Alpacas, and Dairy Cows (Krispy Kreme does tours!), you’re sure to find something that makes it just a bit easier to be a parent whether you live in Grand Rapids or elsewhere.
