Hi everyone...almost time to start planning what to do with the kids over summer. Our preschool closes for Summer, so we need to figure out what we can do to keep the kids occupied. Any ideas in Colleyville area?

check out the Fort Worth Child magazine's summer issue. It should be coming out soon. Also, try guidelive.com for things to do in the area. They are going to have a summer issue as well.

I know that there are all sorts of family activities over at the Bedford Boys Ranch. City of Bedford: Boys Ranch Activity Center (http://ci.bedford.tx.us/Departments/parks_recreation/recreation.htm - broken link)

You might take a look at this too. You can pick up their magazine at different family retailers in the area. Fort Worth Child

Boys Ranch and Artsnet were both going to be my answers but don't know how much of their programs are for pre-school ages...
the Airport Y also has activities depending on ages of your children even if you do not have Y membership
and there are local churches vacation bible school open to pretty much anyone on priority basis as well I think
been a long time since I had young kids to plan for--
the Museum School in FTW is great--been there and done that for several years but very competitive and difficult to get into--
the NorthEast TCC campus also has a summer "college" for kids program that is very worhtwhile but usually for older ones--not pre-school ages--but you can check it out on-line I am sure...

The College for Kids program at NE TCC (I think that's what it's called now, I always think of it as TCJC, lol) is for 3rd grade and up. They have a really wide variety of classes offered too- I taught basket weaving and hand-built ceramics there every summer in college. I'll definitely be sending my daughter's there in the future.

The city of Hurst also has a really nice rec center and a good selection of course offerings. The line for registration is frequently very long and you want to show up before they open to get in line.
