What do tree houses, edutainment and saving the family budget have in common? Port Discovery and Certifikid, that’s what.

Baltimore parents know all about the awesome that is Port Discovery. From Tot-time activities in their terrific new “Tot Trails” room -perfect for tiny ones to explore in safety with soft edges, cushy floors- to their famous three story tree house packed with activities to amaze all, Port Discovery is the jewel of Baltimore family fun. But what is a Certifikid?

Certifikid (sur-tif-a-kid) is the result of one Bethesda mom’s passion for family fun and great deals.

When founding mom, Jamie Ratner, began subscribing to daily deal sites like Groupon, she noticed that there wasn’t really anything she could do with her two small children. Sure she loved the idea of a $10 escape to a Spa, but it just wasn’t practical for her. The childcare cost alone made her head spin. So, like any mom would do, she found a way to make it work for her family. Certifikid was the first daily deal site to cater to what families want and need. From deals on home services, to capturing memories through the lens of great local photographers, to deals like today’s 50% off tickets to Port Discovery, Jamie and her team of moms scour our neighborhoods to bring Baltimore families the best deals around.

So the answer to the riddle is simple, grab today’s deal ($6.95 for Port Discovery tickets), get to know Certifikid, save your family budget, climb a tree house and learn through play at Port Discovery

(cool) tip: Certifikid also supports local schools, groups and organizations through their Certifikid Cares program, sign your group up today. They are also a proud partner of Baltimore’s own Casey Cares Foundation.
