What we're about
Come make new friends!
Welcome to Denver’s Funtastic Moms!
I took over this wonderful group back in May 2010 after Rebecca started it and moved to California. She started a great thing for moms across the Denver area (Littleton, Arvada, Aurora, to Highlands Ranch we welcome all.
The only restriction I would like to put on this group is that you must have at least one child younger than 5. This is because most of our activities will be geared toward children within that age range. Other than that, I don't care if you work part time or full time, are married, single, etc.. I want this to be a fun easy going group that goes out all the time. In addition, we will definitely be adding dad to a few activities- he needs to get out & socialize too!
Here are some examples of outings: The Denver Aquarium, Denver's Children's Museum, Jump Street (Littleton), Denver Zoo, Science & Nature Museum, Denver's Art Museum, Story time at the Koelbel Library, Monkey Business,Chick-Fil-A or other playplaces, Festivals, etc... I love to find affordable options! The SCFD has some great free days scheduled for this year! Monkey Business has $5 Wednesday nights from 5pm-8pm & $1 slices of pieces (Adults are always free)- this is our family night every Wednesday. Abrakadoodle has some great art classes for little ones (starting at age 1.5), mine just finished his first art class.
We're an outgoing, active, down to earth, creative bunch of women, and we wanna have some fun with our kids! Our group is a valuable resource of just what there is to do in and around the Denver area! You'll find all sorts of activities to get you out of the house! You'll take museum trips, participate in fun activities, and best of all, you'll have an outlet where you can make friends & have an adult conversation throughout your day!
If Denver’s Funtastic Moms sounds like the group for you, let's get started!
This will take you all of about 5-10 minutes, I promise... and it will be worth it!

This groups' calendar has approx. 2 or more events per week, for the 0 - 9yr old age group; although mostly geared towards kids 3-9, and includes story times, in-home playgroups, sight-seeing, lunch dates, possible classes, park & picnic playtime, moms night outs, and much more! We encourage our moms to host their own events in order to find the moms who are most local to them! You can easily suggest ideas for new calendar events & we'll get them posted to our events calendar if we have a number of moms interested.
If you’re curious about where we’ve gone & what we’ve done you can log on and click on "Past Events" and pull up great activities to do with your own family around the Denver & surrounding areas or you can ask us to re-do any past event!!
When you log onto our group via meetup.com you'll always see a menu on the left hand side of our page. The following links are the most important part of our group. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with each of them!
CALENDAR: On our calendar you'll find all the meetups that we've had, and that are coming up. Please browse through it, and every time you see something you'd like to attend, RSVP, yes, no, (and sometimes there is a maybe option). If an event isn't at a good time for you, please indicate that on your RSVP and suggest a new date and time to add the event again.
IDEAS: If you can't make it to an event, or you missed a fun event, click on ideas and add it as a suggestion with a date for a new event, and we'll get it put back on the calendar.
MESSAGE BOARD: Have an interesting topic you’d like to discuss, please feel free to post messages anytime! We have moms interested in trading babysitting so you can get a date night from time to time with spending money on a sitter/daycare…
PHOTOS: Many of us take our cameras with us to events and upload the photos afterward to the calendar event listing's photo album. It's really nice to look back through all the past events and see the changes in our children over time! We hope you'll add to our photo albums as well!
You can view all of our photo albums (it will show the photo album that has just had pictures added to it first) but by scrolling down below that one, you'll see the very long list of albums from all of our events that you can click on and browse through.
