Banish Boredom with Pearachute

There is an abundance of unique and exciting activities around Chicagoland not just for adults, but also specifically designed for kids. The only problem? It is a full time job to stay on top of all of the different classes and experiences that are being offered—until now. That’s right, now you can find all of those activities and more on Pearachute, a new mobile responsive website designed to help Chicagoland families make the most out of every moment together.

Pearachute is broken down into two different subscription models: Families can either choose between 5 classes a month (with the option to share classes between siblings and family friends—a bonus for moms of multiples and close knit families like mine) for $79 or unlimited classes for a $99 monthly fee per child. After browsing the Pearachute offerings, I knew that the unlimited option was the best for my family since so many of our favorite play spaces and kids’ classes were included in the Pearachute offerings. Easel Art? Pinstripes? Happy Play Café? Yes, please!

So what kind of events and activities does Pearachute offer? Tons! The majority of the options are structured classes but there are also open play options included, as well as some free and open to the public events such as story times since Pearachute’s goal is to be a comprehensive listing of activities for their little ones (free events are not charged to the user’s Pearachute account). Classes cover topics such as music, art, dance, sports, language…the opportunities are endless.

With clear age and activity filters to sort all of the Pearachute activities, it was very easy to navigate which classes I could take BOTH of my kids to, as well as pick a special event or two to enjoy during our “Mommy and Me” dates. Even when we saw that there was only one seat left in a class, we were able to use the calendar to find the same class we wanted at a later date with little effort. And cancelling a class because of those unexpected parenting moments (sickness, last minute errands that simply can’t be brushed off) is simple as long as you cancel one hour prior to the class’ scheduled start time.

Right now Pearachute is focused on unique activities for the little ones aged 0-5 years and their families to help then have a wonderful #pearachutemoment. Having met many stay at home parents during Pearachute classes, it is a wonderful way to get out of the house (cabin fever isn’t good for anyone—trust me), meet other Pearachute families, and engage in your child’s various interests. Working parents have also sung Pearachute’s praises to me because of the ample amounts of weekend activities that Pearachute includes.

    I wish they had this for where I live. And I wish I could go to Chicago so much! I would even bring my 2 and 5 year old for some fun as long as I got to see the Blackhawks play. Such a cool program though!

      It has been great for us, especially since my boys have stopped napping and we’ve had a TON of extra time to fill.

      It is a great way to banish that “mommy island” feeling that I know many of us can have–especially during the long winter months.

    That sounds like a great way to be active I your community with your little ones in one organized space. I wonder if parachute is available where I live.

    • Amanda says

      Pearachute recently included some fitness activities for parents, too. It’s such a great way for all of us to have fun!

    What a great way to help parents connect. I know that I see a lot of moms looking for playdates when they don’t know many people in the community.
