{Re-Cap} Indoor Playdate Series

Spring is coming! We promise, it is!! It’s been a long, freezing cold winter and we are ready to get OUTSIDE.  However, we had an absolute BLAST at our Indoor Playdates, and we were so glad that you joined us!  We’re so lucky to have so many fun, exciting places to take our little ones when the weather is nasty, and we appreciate each of them hosting us this winter.

West Music: Sing, Play & Learn!

If you haven’t taken your little ones to West Music for a class, we highly recommend it.  Their friendly, outgoing staff does a wonderful job at entertaining them and helping grow their interest in all things music.  If you have older ones and you’re looking to get them started on lessons of any kind, stop by and visit West Music to see all of their options.  Conveniently located on 5th street in Coralville, it’s really a perfect location for families from all sides of the corridor. Follow them on Facebook for more information on their upcoming events, too!

Pancakes & Pajamas: A Holiday Breakfast

This one is quickly becoming one of our favorite events of the year!  Just before the madness of the holidays began, we gathered for a yummy pancake breakfast, some fun games and activities, and some story time with Mrs. Claus herself!  It was so fun to watch the kiddos pile their pancakes with whipped cream, sprinkles and chocolate chips, and then head on over to the hot cocoa bar and top that with the exact same things.  We hope to see you at this annual event in the future; it’s such a great way to welcome the holiday season!  For more information on our amazing local sponsors who came this year, check out the re-cap post here.

Big Picture Gallery & Studio:  Snails Galore!

It was a blustery, freezing cold day when we were welcomed into the bright, cheerful atmosphere of Big Picture Gallery & Studio for their indoor playdate. Owner Becky had an endless supply of fun for the kiddos, with the main event being an adorable snail sculpture to paint and take home.  While their projects dried, the kids were entertained by Becky’s monster story-telling, and by the giant box of markers that were laid out to color on the paper table cloths in front of them.  If you are looking for an artistic outlet for your little ones, you absolutely HAVE to check out Big Picture Gallery & Studio.  She has some awesome summer camps planned, in addition to her regular classes for little ones.  And, don’t leave the moms out, she also has super fun classes for adults!! Be sure to follow them on Facebook to stay up to date on the latest!

Debut Dance:  Music & Movement

The lovely ladies at Debut Dance all but rolled out the red carpet for our little ones at the playdate. First, we practiced our dancing skills in the big purple room.  Next, we moved into the orange room and made a super cute snowman craft.  And then, we were surprised with a pink room completely FULL of pink balloons.  The kids had so much fun dancing around and kicking those balloons!  Seriously, if you ever have a chance to fill a room full of balloons for your kids, DO IT.  What a blast!! If you’re looking for a dance studio for your little ones, we highly recommend checking out the amazing Debut Dance in North Liberty.  Check them out on Facebook for more information!

Thank you again to all of the above; we had so much fun at each of these indoor activities, and we hope that you get a chance to check them all out.  We’re so glad that you were able to join us, and we look forward to seeing so many of you TOMORROW at the last of our indoor events, our 5th annual Egg Hunt!  If you weren’t able to snag a ticket, have no fear: we have lots more planned for 2018 and we can’t wait to see you and your families at our upcoming events!  Stay tuned for more, and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for all the latest!
