School lets out in just a few short weeks, and summer officially begins!
The Memphis Moms Blog is excited to announce our SUMMER PLAYDATE SERIES lineup! Get your calendars out and mark down these dates. Did we mention these playdate are all free? Yep! You won’t want to miss any of the fun!
RAINBOW LAKE PLAYGROUND
Overton Park | 10:00am | Saturday, June 9
Celebrate the start of summer with Character Day at the playground. A super-hero, provided by 901Parties, will be available for pictures, high-fives, and hugs. MMB will be selling snacks and cold drinks. Come meet and hang out with other moms while the kiddos burn off energy on the swings and climbing structures.
THE LITTLE GYM
Germantown | 2:30pm | Thursday, June 21
Beat the heat with some inside fun at The Little Gym. Join us for an hour of open gym time. The kids can practice their balancing skills on the balance beam, or strengthen their muscles on the uneven bars! Maybe they just love running, jumping, and tumbling on the giant mats. There’s something for kids of all ages–even those sweet babies! If The Little Gym has been on your radar but you’ve never committed to classes before, this is the perfect opportunity to try it out and meet the owners. They’ll be happy to direct you to a class that best fits your kids ability and age! MMB will be providing snacks and cold drinks outside of the gym area for after-play treats!
Cordova | 11:00am | Thursday, July 5
There’s nothing better on a hot, July day than ice cream! Less than a year old, Dipsticle offers sweet, creamy gelato or sorbet on a stick! Made fresh daily, with natural ingredients, customers are able to customize each treat to their preference. Join us to receive a free dip or topping choice with your purchase and make it a one-of-a-kind treat! Not into cold treats? That’s ok! They also offer a waffle on a stick and a variety of coffee beverages. For especially tired mamas, they have a stick of gelato with a shot of espresso poured on top! Say what?! MMB will also be providing coloring sheets, chalk art, and other fun activities!
MUDD ISLAND RIVER PARK
Downtown | 11:00am | Saturday, July 21
In speaking with other moms, it’s been brought to our attention that many haven’t experienced Mudd Island River Park! Located downtown, Mudd Island is truly a treasure of our city! While free to walk to, it’s also a fun experience to ride the red monorail over to the park! Mudd Island offers something for everyone—a museum, Mississippi River Walk, paddle boats, and a large area to just run and play. So bring your picnic blanket and lunch and join us for an afternoon of fun! Make sure to “check in” at the MMB blue sign to receive free bubbles, chalk, or temporary tattoos. MMB will also be selling snacks and cold drinks!
