The Little Gym Gift Card

Give the gift of experience this year! With families spending an increased amount of time at home, many children are now experiencing the developmental impact from a decrease in physical and social outlets. While that trend usually increases during the winter months, it doesn’t have to!

This year, give the gift of The Little Gym and provide a child in your life with an outlet to burn energy, build physical and social skills, and most importantly, have fun!

Purchase Gift cards on Square at: – Use QR code; call 614-430-3355 or email us at [email protected]

The 2020 box has a few favorites from last year but all on different days. I worked hard to create a fresh, new spin on this year’s box.

It is also important for me to create days with meaning behind them for the kiddos, for your family and for the greater community.
