Playgroup @ Skokie Exploritorium
Back by popular demand, we have once again reserved the entire indoor play facility at the Skokie Exploritorium to be used exclusively for our Chicago Dads Group on Thursday, December 15 from 10:00am-12:30pm.
Same situation as last time, we do need a minimum of 20 paying guests to come, so we can cover the venues required deposit amount of $80 to rent the facility for our exclusive group outing of which should not be a problem since everyone loves this place especially when we have the entire place to ourselves! If your a working dad, this would be the perfect day to take some time off and join us here with your kids ofcourse :)
The Skokie Park District's "Exploritorium" is similar to a typical children's museum but this place also has some additional interactive activities, including arts/crafts area, costume dress-up/stage area, table train area, block building area, a water feature, toddler play area, plus a two-story playground structure with a tunnel maze, tube slides, bridges, climbing wall, stairs/steps and a zip line that even the adults can play on with their kids.
FYI ~ Socks are required in the tubes and tunnels for all children and adults. Strollers are not allowed past the entrance gate, but there is plenty of space to bring it and park it. This place does NOT have an onsite cafeteria, only a few vending machines near the entrance and a few small round four person tables with chairs to use behind the entry gate, so pack a lunch or bring some snacks for the gang. No food/drink is allowed in the play area. FREE parking.
For those of you who are in city and prefer to use pubic transportation; the Exploritorium is located directly across the street from the CTA Yellow Line @ Oakton-Skokie Station and a short walk from station to venue.
COST: $4/person (FREE under 1 yr old)
