Mom's Night Out Events: Meet for dinner, drinks, movies, and other mom-oriented social events. Get your list of babysitters in order and keep an eye out for the invitation. You need to get out of the house and have some adult conversation!

Monthly Story Hour: Story Hours take place at member's homes or area learning centers and book shops. Children love to hear stories read aloud in a group setting!

Play Groups: Check out our list of regularly meeting play groups in the Frankfurt/Taunus area. Give the play group a call or email and join their next get-together. Or let us know if you have started or would like to start one in your neighborhood. We will be happy to put you in touch with other interested moms in your area and add your new group to the list!

Holiday Parties: Come join us at our three beloved and popular holiday parties - to help you celebrate Halloween, Christmas, and Easter with your children!

Children's Bazaar: Twice a year we hold the Mother's Corner International Children's Bazaar (in the Fall and Spring), which benefits various local charities.  In the past we have supported the Bad Homburg Caritas and the Deutscher Kinderschutzbund Kreisverband Hochtaunus (German Child Protection Society, Bad Homburg Chapter).

The Bazaar provides many of its members the opportunity to make some extra cash through selling what the kids have grown out of or no longer use or need (up to age 9/10). Keep an eye out for specific news on the next sale, as the seller numbers are limited, and allotted on a first-come, first-served basis! Enjoy the feeling of a cleaned-out basement! But only for a minute, as there is all that great stuff to buy.

If you volunteer to work a shift for the Bazaar, you are entitled to shop the pre-sale (a volunteer-only shopping event before the doors open to the public!). Come join us for this super event!

Donations: Donate to Mother's Corner! If you do not wish to participate in the Children's Bazaar, but nevertheless have a cellar full of children's items you would like to see find a good home, you may donate them directly to Mother's Corner. We will take your items, up to one month prior to the upcoming sale, and either give them directly to the charity benefiting from the sale or price the items to be sold at the Bazaar. Proceeds go towards the expenses related to running this event.

Mother's Corner events are also listed on the Calendar of Events on the AIWC Website.
