I recently had the pleasure of meeting ChatterBlock co-founders Randy Greencorn and James DeGreef. ChatterBlock is a web site that lets you find fun activities in your community. There is also a forum where you can ask questions and share parenting advice.
What a great concept. If I don't have anything planned on the weekends my husband and I often find ourselves asking eachother, "What should we do today?" By the time we figure it out, it's time for our daughter's lunch and then nap.
So I already know the site will be a great resource for me. You can view by most popular events, free events, arts & crafts programs and much more. The two co-founders came up wit the idea after realizing how much time their wives spent researching activities for their kids. They thought there should be a site where parents could find local kid and family friendly activities – events, camps, classes and drop-in activities.
ChatterBlock has a team that scours the web for local events to ensure the information on their site is accurate and up to date. You can also share an event with the team and they’ll add it.
ChatterBlock is currently available in areas of the San Francisco Bay and but will be available in many more cities soon so keep an eye out!
