One of our favorite places to keep in the cabin fever avoidance rotation is just a short 30 min north of us (think quick car nap on the way up and back = score!) in Carmel - the Urban Chalkboard. Hoping one of these days a brilliant mama will take it upon herself to open one of these great concepts on our side of town, but in the meantime we don't mind the short jaunt on 465 it takes to get there. Well worth the admission cost and the drive.
What makes Urban Chalkboard so wonderful is the staff, the food, the size of the facility, and the many enrichment activities. From the train table to the dress up corner, an area for littles under 18 months, a reading nook under a tree, a playhouse and kitchen and tubes, balls, dinosaurs and more - there is something for every toddler taste. The layout makes it easy for you to sip your coffee (sooo good) and keep an eye on your kiddos while the amazing staff helps -- giving any tired mama the much needed moment to sit and breathe for a moment.
There is even great programming included from sensory play to baby raves complete with disco lights, bubbles, glow sticks and awesome music!
Matt and I pretty successfully wrote our 2014 Christmas cards out on a visit to the Urban Chalkboard - it worked out well!
