What's LexFUN!

LexFUN! is Lexington’s network for families with children aged five and under. Founded in 1942, LexFUN! is one of the largest volunteer-run parent organizations in Massachusetts providing social, educational and community events and activities. LexFUN! is a recognized MA PTA.  

Our mission is to enrich the lives of families with young children in and around Lexington by connecting them to playgroups, parenting education opportunities, drop-in play center, arts and crafts programs, holiday celebrations, civic activities in town, coffee get-togethers for moms, babysitters, parent panels on preparing for kindergarten, tips on kid-friendly places to eat, shop and visit, and most of all, lots of FUN!

LexFUN! is your connection to EVERYTHING

for families with young children in Lexington!

LexFUN! hosts regular kid-focused activities including a drop-in play center, playground meet ups, playgroup connections, and our art-based Winter/Summer FUN! activities. We offer several family centered events including the Halloween Parade, the Puppet Show, Barn Babies, and Membership Appreciation party. Parents are not forgotten as several parent events are also offered including Mom’s Night Out, The White Elephant gift exchange, Date Night and the relaxing Spa Night!
