Making Connections: Community Playgroup Opportunities

At Iowa City Moms Blog, our main goal  is to connect local moms (YOU) to one another! We’ve heard from so many moms who are new to town, new to mommyhood, and/or just in need of some mommy friends. We know that being a mom is the most rewarding job we can do, but it’s also the hardest. We all need some support now and then from others who know just what we are going through! With that in mind, Iowa City Moms Blog offers monthly meet-ups and play dates, as well as larger events to help connect local moms to one another and our community. But we’ve heard your cry for MORE!!

So, we would like to start coordinating some smaller, more neighborhood-specific playgroups in addition to our regular meet-ups.  Being part of one of these groups will allow you to meet and get together with other moms that live nearby! We currently have 2 playgroups: a North Liberty playgroup and an Iowa City playgroup.  The North Liberty playgroup meets on weekdays.  The Iowa City playgroup offers both weekday and weekend play dates.  If you are one of our followers who live in other areas (Coralville, Kalona, Tiffin, Solon, Mt. Vernon, Swisher, Shueyville, Ely, etc.) you are welcome to join the group nearest you. You may also volunteer to start a playgroup in your town as well!

To join a group and get more information, send an email to contact (at) iowacitymomsblog (dot) com with the following information:

1. Which group you are interested in joining.

2. Number and ages of your kids.

3. Whether you are available for weekday playdates, weekend playdates, or both.

4. Whether you would be willing to help coordinate playdates.

We hope this will be an opportunity for you  and your kids to make some new friends and connections in our community! In order to stay up-to-date on ALL the connection opportunities Iowa City Moms Blog offers, make sure to subscribe to receive our blog posts by email, “like” our Facebook page, and follow us on Twitter (@icmomsblog), Instagram (@ICMomsBlog), and Pinterest! We look forward to hearing from you!!
