May 2021 Family-Friendly Events

By:
Indoor ActivitiesOutdoor ActivitiesSpring

May is full of events to get us all outside together! Story times in the park, hikes in the woods, touch-a-truck events, and more are happening all across the suburbs. You’ll also find indoor events at museums, libraries, and more. So check out the events below and be sure to sign up early; many events require registration, and you don’t want to find yourself too late!

The May calendar page is sponsored by Ms. Clara’s Mini Musicians.

It’s been a challenging year for all of us, and Ms. Clara’s Mini Musicians is ecstatic to get out from behind the screens and into the great outdoors!!! 

Their music and movement classes are not only fun and playful, but they are also designed to grow with your child, targeting developmental milestones every step of the way. From socialization to language development to motor skills, their songs and activities inspire creativity and build both musical and non-musical skills that extend far beyond the classroom. 

But most importantly, nothing beats the pure joy seen on little ones’ faces as they learn a new song, master a tricky drum pattern, giggle uncontrollably as they sing a silly song, or make a new friend. 

So join them for their outdoor music classes at the Cantata Campus, located directly across the street from the Brookfield Zoo. Classes start May 8th, and over half of their spots are already taken! Learn more about their classes (including safety precautions) at www.JoyfulLearningCenter.com/outdoor
