Throughout the month of August, 300+ Little Yelpers and their families got out their permission slips, fastened their seat belts and set out to explore Chicago's North Shore… one kid-friendly place at a time for free. During Yelp's first-ever Little Yelpers Club Field Trip, guests gathered at Heller Nature Center in Highland Park for a Lorax-themed kick-off movie event and grabbed their Yelp compasses on the way out to help navigate their next destination. First stops included storytelling and music at Growth Spurts in Wilmette, then sandcastle play and music-making at Glencoe Beach. Next up Noggin Builders in Northbrook was the perfect spot for goo making and not-so-serious science experiments, then over to Language Stars in Bannockburn for ice cream and fun language activities. After a day of exploration at Kohl Children's Museum in Glenview (shhh… including a sneak peak of the upcoming building blocks exhibit), prince and princesses headed over to The Performer's School in Highwood and got un-Frozen with "Let It Go" performances, and learned what it takes to become famous with behind-the-scenes tumbling, singing, and hands-on choreography. From Broadway star to rock star, the trip wouldn't be complete without a visit to The Rock House in Wilmette for an afternoon of family karaoke. Whew! Check out photos from the Field Trip right here and a fun Glenoce Beach movie here.
