Ahhh the playdate- an important right of passage for both children and parents. As parents, playdates have become an important part of our everyday lives. Not only do they offer tons of benefits for children, but they can also give parents some much-needed adult interaction, or if another parent is hosting your child, a few hours of peace and quiet.
During playdates, children develop meaningful relationships with peers while working on things like communication, sharing, teamwork, and, social skills. They learn how to interact and collaborate, to agree on things, and how to handle situations when they don’t agree.
Getting the most out of playdates can be a challenge. The stress of planning the right activity, the right snacks, the right combination of kids can be overwhelming. But, we are here to help parents in the McMinnville area plan epic playdates that your child will love.
Snapology of McMinnville offers hand-on playdate activities that are structured, educational, fun and most importantly stress-free for parents.
Children are meant to learn through play. When children are actively engaged in hands-on, interactive learning activities, their creativity flourishes and they show a greater interest in school. At Snapology we help your child grow up with a thirst for knowledge. How do we do it? Snapology engages children ages 1-14 using LEGO® bricks, K’Nex, and technology. While the kids are having fun with familiar toys, laptops, and iPads, we sneak in the educational concepts.
Snapology offers a vast array of programs to choose from. Whether you are looking for something simple and fun like a themed class or something more advanced like robotics and coding, Snapology has an option for you.
Some of our most popular themed programs are Minecraft, Star Wars & Superheroes, where students are engaged with a variety of theme-focused activities while learning engineering and math principles. Snapology’s goal is to put purpose to their building through blueprinting and idea sharing. Our themed programs use LEGO® bricks and other interactive building toys to engage children and spark their creativity.
Our Robotics & Coding programs are just as fun and interactive, but admittedly a bit more challenging! Snapology provides robotics and coding programs for children ages 3-14 using LEGO® bricks. In these programs children learn pseudo-coding, coding, robotics and engineering principles. Using fun topics and themes, such as animals, games, space and battle machines, we embrace children’s interest and curiosity to guide them through robotics and engineering principles. Our programs provide the best mix of fun and education for your child. In fact, most kids have so much fun in our programs, they don’t even realize how much they are learning.
And the best part? Snapology classes and events are hosted by a certified Snapologist. That means that parents can remain completely hands-off during the playdate or they can join in on the fun.
Simple! You can either view our event schedule and enroll your kiddo and their friend in a class together or you can get a bunch of children together and host your very own Snapology class for an hour at a location of your choosing (Convenient, right?). Just contact us to work out the details.
