Fall Family Fun!

It’s almost the weekend. Here are some fun family-friendly activities:

  • Go leaf peeping: if you live in an area where leaves change, it is prime leaf peeping time!  Just be sure to take some breaks in your drive, to give your little one time to burn off some energy.
  • Take a nature walk:  even if leaves aren’t changing, you can still take a walk. Whether your little one is in a carrier, a stroller, or walking on their own, it’s always fun to get out into nature and look for leaves, interesting rocks, bugs, birds, and animals.  Make sure you pack snacks and water and take lots of breaks if your child is walking on their own.
  • Visit a pumpkin patch:  if you haven’t purchased your pumpkin yet, what are you waiting for?  Pumpkin patches offer great photo ops, and some offer hayrides!
  • Go apple picking: depending on where you are, it still may be apple picking season. It’s a fun outdoor activity, and you end up with tons of apples to make into delicious treats to share with friends and family.

Whatever you choose to do this weekend, be sure to take lots of pictures. These times spent together when your children are young will be precision memories.

Meet GymboFams Ambassador Phylicia

Hi Gymboree Family!

My name is Phylicia and I’m the mother of a lively 12 month old girl, Scout. She has been attending Gymboree Play & Music since she was six and a half months. Looking for a playdate location, we saw Gymboree Play & Music in our area and attended a free preview Baby Lab class. Needless to say, we loved our experience and we found ourselves regularly attending both the classes and open gym.


The layout of the equipment is perfect for ambitious babies to safely explore. The music and classroom songs are added bonuses for my music loving girl. Additionally, the social exposure in Gymboree Play & Music has been great for Scout’s development. Before we knew it, we found ourselves moving up to the next level class where most of the babies were already walking. I do believe seeing the other babies walking encouraged Scout to go for it and a little before 10 months, we had a walker on our hands!

These days, her favorite activity is playing with the kids of all ages in open gym. She climbs, she runs, she socializes, but most importantly she’s having the time of her life! It’s safe to say she’s not the only family member who loves it!

Being a former educator myself and now a full-time entrepreneur and blogger/content creator, I value the quality of teachers they hire and thoughtfulness they put in their lesson plans. It has also been a great way for my husband and I to connect with other parents since moving to Denver and we look forward to connecting with many more!

Monday Motivation! Let’s Balance.

Get moving at Gymboree Play & Music this week. GymboFams Ambassador Laura knows how to get her Monday off to a great start with some amazing balancing acts.

Good balance helps avoid injury during physical activity, improves our posture, and creates a keen sense of the capabilities of our muscles and joints.

Meet GymboFams Ambassador April

My name is April and I’m a first time mom to a sassy one year old. My daughter has been attending Gymboree Play & Music classes since about six months old. She was a preemie (two months premature) and small (2lbs 14oz) so I was a bit hesitant to take her out into the world until she was bigger. Once she became fighting weight 🙂, working on her development became a primary focus for my husband and I.

Since attending Gymboree Play & Music classes, our baby girl is now sitting unassisted, saying Mama, Dada, along with other gibberish conversations, giving high fives, waving bye-bye, and standing with help. I’ve also seen her personality blossom over the time we’ve attended Gymboree Play & Music classes. I’m a working mom so only get to attend class on Saturdays, but even with one day per week, I’ve seen huge changes. Looking forward to spreading the word about Gymboree Play & Learn classes and getting to know other moms.

Meet GymboFams Ambassador Melissa

Hi all!  My name is Melissa and I have an adventurous, silly two-year-old daughter, Jacqueline, who we refer to as “Jacqui.”  We have a second daughter who will be born this summer!

Jacqui has been attending Gymboree Play & Music for the last few months, which has been a fantastic outlet for her given the intensity of our snowy Boston winters, and her need for constant play! Her favorite activities at Gymboree Play & Music are to run along the huge rainbow tube, hop into the barrels (and pretend to hide!), and do any kind of obstacle course that she can get her hands and feet on.  Most of all, she wants to do these Gymboree Play & Music activities as quickly as possible and as many times as possible before her class or free play ends. She’s non-stop!

In addition to being Jacqui’s mama, I am also a school social worker and researcher in the field of developmental disabilities.  As both a mom and professional in the field, I’ve been very impressed with the quality of teaching, participation level of all attendees, and creativity of learning activities at Gymboree Play & Music.

I’m looking forward to connect with other Gymboree families in the weeks ahead!

Meet GymboFams Ambassador Monique

My name is Monique and I am a stay at home mom to two beautiful girls. My oldest daughter is five and belonged to Gymboree Play & Music up until she went to preschool and I am excited for my 8 month old daughter to begin Gymboree Play & Music.

I recently quit my job of 9 years in the special education field to take care of my children full time as well as homeschool my oldest daughter. I am enjoying being part of their lives, development, and learning 100% and can’t wait to share our Gymboree Play & Music journey!

Meet GymboFams Ambassador Rebecca

I’m currently a stay-at-home mom to Baby McKinley in Dallas, TX. She’s almost 5 months old and has been doing Gymboree Play & Music for about a month.

Prior to baby, I was an accounting and finance consultant. I love traveling and was actually living in Cusco, Peru, when I found out that I was pregnant last February. Safe to say that my world traveling came to a quick end when I found out I was pregnant.

I’m now looking forward to traveling the world with my daughter when she is old enough. Baby McKinley, aka “Boss Baby”, enjoyed her first time swimming this weekend after her Gymboree Play & Music class on Saturday.

Meet GymboFams Ambassador Barbara

Hi my name is Barbara, my son has been going to Gymboree Play & Music in San Francisco since he was a baby. He is now 3 1/2 and has been in the preschool class since last July. We love Gymboree Play & Music so much.


The teachers are all so nice here and Alexander loves playing on the equipment. He loves doing art projects in the classroom and he loves playing basketball. He just loves Gymboree Play & Music overall.

When Alex is not at Gymboree Play & Music he is at home playing with his cars, hot wheels and monster trucks, or watching Mickey Mouse who is his all time favorite. He also loves lightning mcqueen from Cars.

He loves green so much and it is his favorite color, in class he is always asking for things that are green, paint, crayons, toys, stickers. And when he signs in he asks for the green marker to citcle his name. He is such a great and happy little boy especially when he is at Gymboree Play & Music and the teachers loves him and call him their baby, since he is the smallest kid in class.

Meet GymboFams Ambassador Megan

My boys are 2.5 and 13mo, we’ve been members since my oldest was 5 months. My youngest has gone to Gymboree Play & Music since he was 1 week old because I used to wear him during all his brothers classes! Now he goes to class just himself.

We love Gymboree Play & Music, it’s a great environment for my active boys to burn off energy and I’ve met some wonderful moms there that have turned into great friendships! We look forward to getting to know everyone!
