Invest in His Sense of Adventure
Whether your refund is big or small, you can take advantage of several ways to expand your toddler's horizons. Take your toddler on vacation to someplace new and unusual, or back to your favorite family getaway.
You can also buy a family membership to your nearest zoo, aquarium, or museum. Family memberships usually involve paying one fee, which then allows all immediate members of your family regular admission to the zoo, aquarium, or museum all year. Most memberships include discounts on food and merchandise within the facility, guest passes for grandparents or friends, and even reciprocity with other zoos, aquariums, and museums throughout the United States, allowing your family entrance into other zoos, aquariums, and museums for free or at reduced rates.
Overall, family memberships are a great investment for parents looking to get their children out and about. And it makes those unpredictable outings with toddlers more relaxed, knowing that if your child falls asleep in the stroller or throws a horrible tantrum only 30 minutes after you arrive, you won't have wasted a full day's admission price.
