Feeding ducks at your local park is a fun activity for your mom & baby group. Little kids enjoy visiting the ducks so this idea is to schedule a mom & baby group play date at a local park with ducks. Ask each mom bring along some bread or crackers for the ducks along with wagons, strollers and some outdoor toys or balls so you can play in the park after.

Great idea! Sounds like fun.
Another fun idea and I love the duck trivia! My guess is that the kids might know more about ducks than some of the parents. 🙂
You’re probably right!
