In and Around Baton Rouge

in and around Baton Rouge With Kids

Baton Rouge is a big place that offers both the fun of a college campus (Geaux Tigers) and the amenities of a city. There’s a lot to see in and around Baton Rouge. Even if you’ve lived here all your life, there’s still a lot to discover in Louisiana’s capital.

If you’re leaving the house, there’s a good bet that Red Stick Mom has your activity covered, from indoor playgrounds to parks to restaurants to the events that everyone in Baton Rouge is talking about.

At Red Stick Mom, we have family fun in Baton Rouge for all seasons covered, as well as creative ideas for every member of the family. Our team of more than 25 Baton Rouge moms is always looking for activities, events, and inspiration for everything from how to host the perfect Baton Rouge birthday party for kids to hidden gems in Baton Rouge.

Each year, we publish an extensive list of summer camps options in and around Baton Rouge, keeping you informed about all of the best childcare choices for your Baton Rouge family. We’ve got an eye on the local Baton Rouge schools, helping parents make the best decision for their students. We’ll even help you find the best swim lessons in Baton Rouge.

Our writers live in and around Baton Rouge, so we’ve got a lot of experience finding the best things about living in Baton Rouge with kids. We’ve made it through countless weather events like the 2016 floods together and will always connect Baton Rouge moms to one another for assistance and support.

We know that living in Baton Rouge means choosing from a variety of neighborhoods and lifestyles, and we are here for it all. No matter where you live in Baton Rouge, and no matter where your kids go to school in Baton Rouge … Red Stick Mom is here to make life in Baton Rouge with kids easier and more fun!

Do you know how to perform CPR on your infant or child? You should! If something goes wrong, the time between when you dialed 911 and when EMS arrives is a critical window. Those three to five minutes can be the difference between life and death. Bystander CPR can double and even triple someone’s chance for survival. That is why Red Stick Moms Blog, The American Heart Association, and Baton Rouge General Medical Center are ready to help you learn those lifesaving skills at “Mom School”. This FREE “mom friendly” event will teach you how to perform infant and child CPR. We know moms are busy, so as a special treat we have something just for you. Baton Rouge General...
We are in a very long process of remodeling our house, so sticking to our budget is very important. A Disney vacation with the kids was not in the budget. Even a weekend trip to the beach was not in the budget. But momma needed a vacation to end the summer! I just wanted some time devoted to having fun with my family. So Baton Rouge here we come! My hubby took a few days off work so he could join us. Day 1: Our first day began at the movies. I took the kids to the $1 movie to see Mr. Peabody and Sherman. Cute, cute movie for all ages. We had a picnic by the fountain and visited Barnes...
Disclosure: This evening was graciously sponsored by Painting and Pinot with delicious food provided by Street Breads. As moms, we are SO busy painting on our own "canvases" of  the life we are building. Sometimes, it becomes a challenge to put daily life on hold to have a little fun. At Red Stick Moms Blog, we strive to bring you authentic and meaningful content that is relatable. We are all in the midst of different seasons and creating our masterpieces…. but last week we decided to throw caution to the wind and pick up a real paint brush. Our team was given the opportunity to enjoy a night out to bond, laugh and paint with Painting and Pinot. Some of us had experienced doing this...
Disclosure: Our amazing Mom Prom: “Shake It Off” was held at the beautiful East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library. This evening wouldn’t have been such a success without our wonderful community sponsors: Kismet Cosmetics, The Massage Emporium, Air Blow Dry Bar, Whole Foods, Indie Plate, Frankie’s Dawg House, Cupcake Allie, Hanley’s, Cake Jewels and Leblanc’s Food Stores. On Friday, May 15th, the mood for the evening was set perfectly to the backdrop of the best music, indulgent services, and delicious food. A light rain was trickling but that didn’t stop our moms from looking fabulous and having a blast dancing the night away. This night was all about shaking off the stress, having a blast with girlfriends, and making some...
Disclosure: This event was sponsored by Grimaldi’s Coal Brick-Oven Pizzeria Delicious, authentic and superb service: that is what we look for in a great dining experience! A few weeks ago, our team braved the soggy weather to head to the new Grimaldi’s Pizzeria located at the Mall of Louisiana. We were so glad we did! Upon arriving, we were happily greeted by the staff and taken into the private room where we had a nice long table to accommodate our growing team of moms. Our server quickly took drink orders as the chairs started to fill up. We began with a mixture of fresh salads including the Caprese Salad, Caesar Salad and Grimaldi’s House Salad. Let’s just say those didn’t last very...

On January 29, we had 40 moms come together to participate in an educational evening held at the locally-owned Alexander’s Highland Market. It was a great night to meet other, local moms, chat about meal-planning, eat and drink, enter some incredible giveaways, and take home an awesome SWAG bag! Here's a closer look at this great night.  We were so happy to have Courtney Brock, the director of the Metabolic Kitchen at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center, and her team of Dieticians ready to lead our moms on an informative tour that focused on making healthy choices and gathering ingredients for a delicious Quinoa Lentil Chili. Courtney began the tour in the produce section of the store where Hanley’s Foods...
All this week we are tasting and judging the yummiest treats in Baton Rouge to find you the best of the best—mom (and kid) approved! For each place we tested, we considered flavor, texture/quality, kid-friendly atmosphere, service, and our overall experience. It wasn’t easy (since each place is awesome), but somebody had to do it. When given the chance to find the best anything edible in Baton Rouge, what pregnant woman could really resist?  I mean really, how fun would an entire day filled with endless amounts of frozen yogurt be for the boys, my niece... and myself?!  Definitely unlike any other day in our household.  We started early, mapped out our stops and dove in head first in...
