I partnered with this brand in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.
Finding activities for my kids should, theoretically, be easy with today’s technology, but that is not always the case. I usually browse the paper books for park districts in my town and neighboring towns to see what is available. I have called private locations based on word of mouth recommendations. I constantly Google activities in my area but I end up with tab-overload!
Afterschoolz is a company that makes finding activities for kids easy and quick. With just a few taps on a keyboard, you can find exactly what your child is looking for.
Features of Afterschoolz:
- Wide range of activities available to browse – not just sports!
- Search by age, interest, and location so you are not wasting time on what isn’t right for your family.
- Receive timely updates via email about new programs in your area. (New programs are constantly added that you won’t want to miss!)
- Totally FREE! Yes, using Afterschoolz is totally free for parents.
- Currently, Afterschoolz is available in areas of Chicago and its surrounding suburbs (including Naperville, Aurora, Wheaton, etc.) but they are in the process of expanding to more cities across the US. You can actually ask your favorite after school activity provider to register with Afterschoolz so everyone can check them out!
I was able to look up activities for all three of my kids on one website! So convenient for this busy mom!
Here is a soccer search I did for my 8-year-old:
I had a total of three pages of activities to choose from. Once I made a selection, I was able to see costs, locations and times available.
You can narrow down your choices even more by searching for specifics.
Overall, I found Afterschoolz to be super easy and I was impressed with the quantity and variety of activities available. From sports to cooking classes to engineering to crafts, there is so much to browse! I can also search for activities in places other than just my immediate area. For example, when my kids visit their grandparents they are constantly looking for something to do. I have a feeling Afterschoolz is going to be very helpful for this summer!
Whether you are ready to book something now for your kids or you just want to get a feel for what’s out there, Afterschoolz really is a one-stop shop for kid activities!
