What we're about

All too often, kids with disabilities aren't invited to birthday parties or have very few friends show up to their own birthday party. This is a monthly meetup to celebrate their birthdays, where they can be both invited to a birthday party (and be invited to one on a regular basis). Parents of kids with disabilities should join and help identify "disability friendly" locations, bring their children, and stay at the party to attend to their kid's needs while there. Events can be held anywhere in Chicagoland.

June Birthdays

Country Lakes Park

June Birthdays (Suburban) will be held at Country Lakes Park in Naperville, IL. This park was designed for inclusive play for children of all abilities. The kids can play for a bit and I was hoping to sing happy birthday and have cake/cupcakes during the last half hour in honor of the June birthday kids. Bring your picnic blankets/lawn chairs! Please send me a message and let me know if your child will be celebrating a birthday in June! If you would like your child to get a personal invitation to the birthday party, please send me a message with your address and I'll send one before the event. MeetUp rule: in order to have events for children, parents must stay with their child during the event.
