There is something magical that happens when you witness your child discover a new joy. However, if your child is anything like mine, you hesitate to dive right in on long term commitments for the fear that they will quickly hate the chosen extracurricular activity. The hope that “this time will be different” is enough to keep me wanting to keep trying new things.
Pearachute is a one-stop shop for family fun! From community events to drop in classes, camps and more, Pearachute has something for kids of all ages: from 6 months to 12 years. There are plenty of classes to drop-in and explore during times that fit your schedule with the flexibility to accommodate late naps, stuffy noses, and unplanned visits from grandparents.
My personal favorite part of Pearachute is how flexible and convenient it is to explore all different types of classes we’ve been wanting to try with our little ones. My 3-year-old is a very cautious child, and new experiences are not always easy with him. We have lost money (and our wits) trying to sign him up for classes and activities that we assumed he would love that he really hated. Pearachute allows us to try all types of new things with him with no worry of dragging him to something he hates for 6 weeks just because we paid for a full session.
Pearachute’s vision is that by creating this platform which brings discovery, affordability, convenience and connection, they can empower a generation of families to make the most of the time they have together. Because in the end, more than anything, we all want our children to feel loved, enriched, and connected to those around them.
Since launching in Dallas, Pearachute has tripled inventory and now has over 150,000 spots available on the site. Pearachute has approximately 2,000 locations on the platform for families to explore community events, special events and more!
Okay, how does it work?
With Pearachute, your family can enjoy activities at hundreds of locations near your zip code by buying and earning credits. Think of Pearachute credits like airline miles. The more you buy and use, the more you can also earn in return. Once you buy your credits, you can book classes and experiences online, filtering by zip code and your child’s age.
Now that you know how to buy credits and search for things in your area, what kinds of things can you expect to book? Some of my personal favorites for my three year old have been:
- Special activities at the Kids Play Co (like a petting zoo!)
- Kidscreate Studio art classes
- Horseback riding
- Parents’ Night Out pass at various kids’ gyms
- Cavanaugh Flight Museum visit
- Open play at Safari Run
- Special activities at Klyde Warren Park (currently signed up for MetroDemic Scavenger Hunt)
There are hundreds of things to choose from. You will not have a shortage of options on any given day.
