I live in New York City. As you may know, it’s one of the most expensive places to live in the world. My boyfriend and I do not make much money at all. In fact, at this very moment, I have about oh…$10 to my name. Not that you needed to know that, but it’s true.

Unlike many mothers in this town, I don’t have money to spend on fancy classes for my kid, i.e. tumbling, sing-a-longs, martial arts and other similar fun sounding yet expensive activities.

So what do we do everyday, you might ask? We do whatever is free! But, I’m getting bored of all the free stuff. I need more ideas for things to do with a 2 1/2 year old that do not cost any money. Can you help me out? Here are a list of the things we already do:

  • Toddler Time at the library
  • Go to the playground
  • Playdates
  • The Botanic Gardens on days when it’s free
  • The park

And…that’s about it. Any ideas for more things to do in NYC with a 2 year old that are free? Let me know!
