King George is a small town in northeastern Virginia that is the county seat of King George county. Moms in this small community and the surrounding area can find plenty of entertaining activities for their active toddlers. Toddlers are little bundles of energy, so keeping them busy is a good thing.

1. L.E. Smoot Memorial Library

You and your toddler can have an educational yet entertaining time at the L.E. Smoot Memorial Library (smoot.org), which is right in King George. The library has a children's section filled with titles to keep your little one happy -- and encourage his imagination. Check out some children's books to take home, or share a story right there at the library. There are scheduled events for children, like craft time, story time and a Lego club. Family movie nights also take place occasionally. All events are listed on the events calendar on the library's website.

2. King George Branch YMCA

The King George Branch of the YMCA (family-ymca.org) is a great place to take your toddler for stimulating activities.

The 40,000-square foot indoor facility has a play zone that's perfect for busy little ones. They can run, climb and play.
