Yesterday we went on our first official play date. We met our friend Max and his mommy, Jamie, at The Thinkery. Word on the street is that this is where all the cool kids hang out. After our play date today, I would have to agree! We had so much fun. Our first stop was story time. The Thinkery offers story time 3 times a day and integrate songs, activity and sign language into each of the stories. It was challenging but Baby D managed to do a little sign language with my help and he’s almost a pro at the hokey pokey.
After story time we headed over to the garden area, which is perfect for the littles. Baby D isn’t crawling yet so we played in the big pillows and did a little baby yoga. Then we had some sitting up time to see what all the bigger kids were up to. The garden themed area is full of soft, plush noise makers and mirrors. What little person wouldn’t love it! Baby D really enjoyed the mirror triangle and we know it’s a favorite for his buddy Max as well.
The light room was really fun with a giant lite brite. I’ll admit I spent a few minutes trying to figure out how to make a 6 foot tall lite brite for Baby D’s big boy room when its time. We did play with our shadows for a few minutes and checked out a few of the other fun light activities.
We had a great day at The Thinkery and I know that we will be headed back soon. There are tons of activities for children and adults of all ages. Baby D also tried out the water wall, but wasn’t real sure what to think of it. He loves playing in the water so next we’ll spend more time in this area for sure.
