Hi all,
I have a 7 month old girl, and we are trying to find some activities to do on a drop-in basis (swimming, yoga, etc) in the Scarborough (McCowan & Hwy 401) area. Anyone know of anything, or in this area and want to meet up?

talk to your library too. They are an awesome resource. I have a friend who is a mom and works part time at the library. She knows of every good free and inexpensive thing to do in the state. all that information gets sent to the library for them to post and they have so many of their own events as well.

have you tried meet up.com to find local groups in your area? I know for my area there are groups for all kinks of moms. Stay at home mom groups, working mom groups, military spouses, single moms. You will likely find some things there.

Also, go to the library and usually the doctors office has them too and look for local parenting activities magazines. I know there is one for our area that lists all kinds of great free things to do.

Your local library probably has a story time or something where you can hook into the local community of moms and get recommendations from them of other local activities. If you are a Stay at home mom ask your husband if any of his collegues have wives who are home that might have some recommendations for you. You might not want to get too chummy with the work wives for political reasons but they might be able to point you to some activities.

If you are a working mom try to make pals with some other moms who seem similar to yourself at the daycare pick up or send home a note for a "mommy play date" with another child.

Don't be afraid to put yourself out there. when the kids are that young it is kind of lonely age for the mom because the kids need a lot of attention and they aren't really choosing friends yet. but before you know it you will have a full blown circle of moms at school and sports.
