You’re Invited :: BIG Fun at The Little Gym! {Sweetheart Edition}

After taking a short hiatus from our Big Fun at The Little Gym series for the holidays, we have to say – both our kiddos {and ourselves} are missing that chance to play and connect BIG time!  I mean, just look at all of the fun that we have had…

The Little Gym 2 - 1

Gah – those pictures make us miss it even more!!  Thankfully, we are over the moon to be doing it again at two new locations, and this time we are sweetening the deal just in time for the month of LOVE too!  Yup, in honor of Valentine’s Day, we are encouraging your little one to come dressed in pink and red, and we are going to have a few sweet surprises that morning for you as well.

UPDATE :: Since the first of these two play dates is QUICKLY approaching, we figured it was time to let you in on a sweet little surprise…our snack sponsor!  We are so, SO, SO very excited to be partnering together with our friends over at Shipley Do-Nuts to bring you and your littles some incredibly yummy treats.  Their delicious donuts…their yummy glaze…we couldn’t imagine a sweeter local business to work with for our Sweetheart Edition of this play date series than them!  {Plus, we are pumped about their upcoming Do-Nut Dash happening next month too.  Have you heard about it?  It’s a non-competitive, family friendly event supporting a great cause and featuring donut themed obstacles and a finishing line at 8th Wonder Brewery.  Yes, please!}

If you’re new to this play date series, be sure to check out Recap #1 and Recap #2 to get a feel for all of the fun that’s in store.  But as always, be prepared to snag your tickets FAST since our play dates are known for selling out – which isn’t a big surprise considering they are only $5/child and come complete with a one hour class, PLUS snacks and drinks too!

Ready to know where we are heading next?  Here goes…

Next up in our play date series…Friendswood and Kingwood!

After hosting so many play dates with The Little Gym over the past several months, we have found that the All Ages classes are definitely the way to go.  This class is modified to fit EVERY age and stage of development with the layout very similar to what you might expect at a birthday party there.  The kiddos get to play and have fun, the moms get to find a class that works with their schedule, and you don’t have to worry about older/younger siblings.  It’s such a win/win for all – and with the staff at The Little Gym being absolutely AMAZING, they really move around the room to help modify activities and find the best fit for each little one.

Oh, and did we mention that we will have snacks, drinks, and an opportunity to mix and mingle also?  That’s right!  In the attached multi-purpose room, we will have some fun activities set up along with delicious donuts from Shipley Do-Nuts.  So if you are signing up for the early class {10 – 11 am}, we suggest saving time to stay for awhile afterwards to mingle with friends and refuel after a fun class.  And if you are signing up for the later class {11 am – 12 pm}, be sure to come a little bit early so that you can grab a snack and hang out awhile before heading in to play!


#hmbplaydate is the hashtag!

If you know us, then you know we LOVE when you use social media leading up to our events as a fun way to spread the word, connect with new friends, and build our community.  Our sweet friend Momma’s Gonna SNAP Photography will be at one of the play dates to capture the fun, but we definitely encourage you to get those camera phones out and share the love too!

Don’t forget to purchase ONE ticket per child.  Tickets are extremely limited and will be sold on a first come, first serve basis – so grab them quick!

 Please Note :: Tickets are non-refundable, and this event will happen rain or shine.  With advance notice, we will attempt to connect you with another mom who is interested in purchasing your ticket should the need arise.  Also, by purchasing this ticket you understand that your photo or that of your child may be taken and give permission for Houston Moms Blog to use it on their site, in promotional materials, and/or on their social media platform.

Kelly is the founder of Houston Moms Blog and has lived in this beautiful city nearly all of her life. She has a degree in education from Texas State University and was honored to teach special education for eight years to some of the cutest little kiddos you could ever meet. While teaching, Kelly met Cody – a tall drink of water and country boy to the core – and together, they fell in love, got married, and decided to start a family. In March 2011, they welcomed Hayes into the world, a silly but smart little boy with a story you have to read to believe. And in April 2013, their family was complete with the addition of Hadley, a super gregarious and oh-so-cute baby girl. Now, Kelly devotes her days to caring for her own little ones…and would not trade this new job of hers for the world! In her not-so-spare time, Kelly loves meeting up with her girlfriends for margaritas, failing miserably at Pinterest projects, and exploring this big old city with her two favorite little side-kicks in tow.
