We love finding stumbling upon places that make great outings with your kiddos. Grandview Heights has so much to offer for families and we wanted to fill you in on some secret spots too! Maybe you love to give your little one a special date once a month or wanted to take them somewhere special for their birthday. Well, you have come to the right spot! We have some great ideas for you!
Cambridge Tea House Princess Lunch- The Cambridge Tea House is a quaint cafe that hosts many bridal showers, baby showers, and private parties. However, another pleasant surprise is that they have a special tea party lunch for the perfect princess or prince in your life. Sitting in a fancy place not only makes your little lady or fella feel special, but he or she gets to choose from a special menu. They can choose a heart-shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwich, junior egg salad, or tea bread and cheese with a drink from their very own tea cup. Their “tea” (chocolate milk with sprinkles = the best!) is served with cookies and a prince or princess crown to top it all off. This little lunch is a perfect way to celebrate a special occasion and the food for mom is delicious too! A reservation is recommended. Check out their menu!
Wendy’s Gymnastics- Sometimes it can be difficult to sign up for classes and make it to a weekly meet up each week, especially with summer approaching. Wendy’s Gym offers a weekly drop-in toddler play date every Tuesday from 11:15-12:15. It is a great way to build self-esteem and confidence for your little one as they build their gross motor skills. It is also a fun place to meet friends and other parents while your toddler spends time jumping into their block pit or doing tricks on the rings! To find out more about their open gym and classes and birthday parties visit Wendy’s Gymnastics.
