This post is a Sponsored Post I received tickets for sharing our experience at Cafe O’Play.
Last we I discussed 3 Ways to Keep the Kids Occupied During Thanksgiving Holiday, and today I am discussing why you should visit Cafe O’Play if you live in the Northeast Ohio Area! Its at the top of our list for places to keep my children occupied during the Thanksgiving and Christmas Break!
Since Darrick and I had Veteran’s Day off and Emma was out of school we decided to take the kids to Cafe O’Play.
If you have never heard of Cafe O’Play before it’s an indoor play cafe created to offer families healthy food options and physically-active play in a safe, clean, and comfortable environment. It actually amazing for Northeast Ohio since the weather is getting colder it provides a place for parents to come and relax while their children burn off energy!
Cafe O’Play is separated into two main areas: the coffeehouse (yes, you read that right…coffeehouse for Mommy and Daddy) and a large indoor playground for the kids! Parents have the option to sit int he cafe by a wall with large windows, giving complete line of sight into the play area. Or they have the option to sit in chairs or a couch inside the playground area!
All children must be accompanied by an adult in our facility in order to be admitted to the play area for safety reasons! Adults are not permitted to enter the play area without the wristband that indicates they have come with their child.
Each person admitted to the play area must receive a color-coded wristband identifying him/her with the rest of their party. Trained staff supervise the play areas at all times to ensure adherence to the Cafe O’Play rules while assisting the children to maximize their enjoyment.
Cafe O’Play is owned by John & Carolyn Green…during our visit we had the pleasure of meeting John! He was the BEST…very friendly and personable! He spent time with us telling us all about Cafe O’Play! I know we were there on a blogger trip, however, he was friendly with ALL of the customers at Cafe O’Play and I believe he would’ve spent that time with anyone! You could truly tell Cafe O’Play was a passion for he and his wife! THANKS JOHN!!!
Emma and DJ had a great time playing at Cafe O’Play, they recruited Mommy to play so I actually had a workout too…
Playing with the EyePlay interactive floor…if there was a way to bring one of these to our house my kids would LOVE it!!!
We ended our afternoon with lunch in Cafe!
I was so intrigued by the colors of the Menu! It was a chalkboard…and done by a local artist!
The table was also done by a local artist!
For lunch we got the “Tin” option for the children…
You pick 6 options from the menu and they are put in a muffin tin for the children. I LOVED this idea so much that we are now using it at home! And my children loved it as well because they are usually asking for lots of things when its time to eat…
Overall we had a GREAT visit and plan to come back soon! I actually cant wait to schedule a play date with some of my mom friends and their kids! We are really planning come back for the Glow in the Dark Party on Friday Night!!!
