OC Toddler Camp

orange county toddler activities


When I was a stay-at-home working mom with toddlers I was always on the lookout for new Orange County toddler activities to explore. Or, any activity to get me out of the house for a few hours and hopefully meet up with other moms.

If you are in this same toddler phase of life, I am very excited to share with you a special activity called Toddler Camp along with a promo code “tinyoranges” to save $15 on registration for the spring session starting next week.

Orange County Toddler Activities

Sponsored by SoCalMoms, Toddler Camp offers families a pre-planned weekly adventure with their toddler to discover the best local programs, places, activities and entertainment.

Offering a fun social atmosphere as well as Orange County toddler activities that encourage the type of play recommended for the age group, Toddler Camp is a great way to take the pressure off of the “what are we going to do today?” question.

At least for one morning a week!

The next 8-week Orange County Spring Toddler Camp session starts NEXT week, so you want to get your registration in ASAP.

Ideal Ages

All children must be walking toddlers and attend with a parent or guardian. Most groups consist of toddlers between the ages of about 15 months to 3 years. Siblings can be added on at a discounted rate; infant siblings can attend for free.

What Do You Do at Toddler Camp?

Each Toddler Camp session incorporates music, art, physical activity and as much outdoor play as possible. Sample locations might include beaches, play spaces, farms & zoos, parks & museums, cultural centers or festivals.

How Do I Sign Up for Toddler Camp? 

The OC Spring Session runs from Tuesday, March 25th to Thursday, May 22nd, one morning a week, either Tuesday or Thursday, for approximately 2 hours in the morning.

Cost is regularly $170 per child for the 8 week session. You can add a second child for + $95, however, enter promotion code “tinyoranges” to register for only $155.

Sibling additions also can use the discounted rate, or only + $80 additional.

The fee includes each week’s adventure, healthy snacks, access to the SoCalMoms parenting experts and a welcome to camp gift bag full of goodies. To me, this is an amazing price per activity to have someone pre-plan your morning for you!

They will even set up private Toddler Camp sessions for groups of at least 8 children if you already have a play group set up. Contact them for more information on their private Toddler Camps.

I wish, wish, wish this existed when I had toddlers. I would have signed up in a heartbeat to get out and discover new Orange County toddler activities as well as meet some new friends along the way.

If you are interested in their summer toddler camp dates, or any future camp sessions, you can join their interest list at the bottom of the registration page and be notified of future dates.

Hotel Tonight

Hotel Tonight Promo Code

With Spring Break coming up, I wanted to share one of my new favorite apps, Hotel Tonight, along with a Hotel Tonight promo code for $25 off because I AM IN LOVE.

When you download the app, click on the promo code bar, and enter jscheumann1 and $25 will be added as a credit to your account to be used on your first booking.

How Hotel Tonight Works

Hotel Tonight works directly with hotels with last minute rooms to fill. Better to have someone in that room for a lower price than keeping it vacant, right? Makes sense!

Simply download the free Hotel Tonight app, and poke around by city to check out the last minute, same day hotel deals. 

Once the app is installed, you can go on, search by city, and it will pull up all hotels in the surrounding areas that have rooms available at what price.

We Used Hotel Tonight and Loved It!

Last month my family went to stay at the Rancho Bernardo Inn for two nights. We wanted to stay a third, but they were sold out, so we decided to give Hotel Tonight a try so we could at least stay somewhere in San Diego.

I checked out the app on the ride down, and we found the Hilton San Diego Del Mar, right by the Del Mark racetrack. The day we got it, we snagged the room for only $109.

Because you enter all your info into the app, when you book the room, it automatically charges your card, so that is out of the way.

When I checked in, they of course, took a credit card for incidentals, but all they really had left to do was hand me the keys!

Things to Know About Hotel Tonight.

- Same day bookings only, it’s not Hotel Tomorrow, so you have to be a “live on the edge” kind of person. Hee hee… But such a great deal if you can be flexible! We are going to use it for random Staycations this summer. My kids will do anything to get to a hotel pool.

- Hotel Tonight rate covers room and tax only. Parking and mini bar raids are on you.

- All bookings are non-refundable.

- You can’t request room type; it’s up to fate at check in. However our hotel was able to accommodate two beds for us when we used it no problem.

Hotel Tonight prefers quality over quantity, so the rooms they feature offer a variety of choices, but are not overwhelming.

Hotel Tonight Promo Code

When you sign up, you can put in a Hotel Tonight Promo Code for $25 off, just use jscheumann1.  The $25 will be used as a credit in your account. And, if you book through Hotel Tonight, they deposit $25 in mine. Nice. See you on a future Staycation?

Have a great weekend everyone!

Golden Tote

Golden Tote

This company is just too much fun. Golden Tote is a surprise grab bag filled with clothing and accessories for women at AMAZING prices.

Let me tell you how it works! There are two grab bag options, one for $49 and one for $149.

With the $49 Golden Tote, you select one item you like from their selection, and then they surprise you with the additional pieces (2-3 items total.)

Same with the $149 Golden Tote, but you select two items you like from the $149 tote page, and they surprise you with the rest (5 – 7 items total.)

Golden Tote sent me the $149 tote last month so I could see how it worked.  It was so fun to go online and choose two things I liked, even better, it is nice to have a narrow selection of items.  It makes it simple -not overwhelming.

When the Golden Tote box arrived on my doorstep, Christmas came early, because included were all these darling pieces I have already worn a ton. A little wardrobe refresh for winter. Love it, especially before the holidays!

Golden Tote Finds

The two items I picked myself were the “Everything You Need Jacket,” a great winter to spring staple as the faux fur and inner lining are both removable. I get so many compliments on this jacket and it IS available again in the $149 December Tote (grab it up ladies!!!)

The other item I picked was this cute “Floral Jacquard Knit Dress” for my husband’s work holiday party. Cute, good coverage, but also a little flirty – love!

Then, as a surprise, I received that super cute navy and white blouse, lightweight color block sweater, black dress (darling with tights and booties), and cozy cardigan.

ALL these pieces for $149! I seriously would have considered paying $149 for the jacket alone based on how much I wear it. Amazing deal.

Click here for Golden Tote FAQs, I think a Tote would make such a cute holiday gift for girlfriends, or consider a Gift Card so they can shop and chose their item(s) themselves!

Sales start the 1st Monday of the month and run through the last day of the month. If you see something you like, snatch up the Tote and get it as your selection because hot items do sell out!

Disclosure: Product received complimentary to facilitate review. All opinions are my own. LOVE my fashion goodies!
