Little Lake County Birthday Express Stop #1 – YuKids Island

Little Lake County turns six years old in 2016–We’re big kids now!

In that time, we’ve learned a thing or two about throwing a birthday party…and we know it’s just no fun to celebrate alone.  So we’re inviting you to climb aboard The Little Lake County Birthday Express!  We’ll be making stops at five (5) locations in and around Lake County with our friends from Bright Horizons to celebrate with FREE birthday party playdates for our readers.

According to Laura in her recent Yu Kids Island review,

Yu Kids Island looks like a life-size version of the Candyland board game. The colorful, spacious play area has a number of attractions that will send your munchkins running from your arms with glee: a large moon jump, spinning “trees” with hanging “balls” that they can climb up or swing from, rotating play structures, a puppy teeter-totter, and even a separate play area for babies, to name a few.

At each of our birthday party playdates, enjoy samples of Qwackers  to fuel your fun! Qwackers are gluten free, GMO free, soy free, corn free and sugar free which means more of our little friends can enjoy them.
