As we get into the craziness that tends to be the holiday season, it’s helpful for parents to have a few nights of kid-free time to tackle to-dos — whether that’s shopping for gifts, cleaning for guests, preparing to host a party, or simply taking a restful break from all the obligations.

The Life Time Kids team has planned a handful of Parents Night Out events in November and December for your kids to take part in themed fun — and so you can get that time to yourself.

“This season of the year is busy enough,” says Tori Limmel, kids curriculum manager at Life Time. “We love to help parents out by not only providing an enjoyable place for their kids to spend an evening with others their age, but also by giving parents this little bit of support in their schedules.”

These are the events and themes taking place in November and December:

Tween Takeover

Ages: 9 to 13 years old
Length: Typically 3 hours

At Tween Takeover nights, kids rule! This time is for your tween to decide what they want to do at their athletic country club: They can play sports, create crafts, challenge one another to a board game, or participate in other fun activities. The space is theirs.

Night at the Theater

Ages: 4 to 12 years old (ages may vary by club)
Length: Typically 3 hours

Lights, camera, action! Now showing is a Parents Night Out to remember. Your kids can channel their inner actor in a game of charades, as well as during gases of “star performer tag” and “TV tag.” Pre-K kids will participate in an optical illusion project while the school-aged kids will make 3D glasses.

Drop Off & Shop: Winter Theme

Ages: 4 to 12 years old (ages may vary by club)
Length: Typically 3 hours

This event’s activities are centered around the elements of the season: Kids will make snowflake art and run around while playing “snowman tag” and “everyone’s it” frozen tag.

For a STEAM project, kids will be challenged to build the tallest tower, while pre-K kiddos will complete an ice cube-counting activity.

Pajama Jingle Jam

Ages: 4 to 12 years old (ages may vary by club)
Length: Typically 3 hours

Let your kids come cozy in their favorite pajamas. They’ll make jingle bell necklaces, play “reindeer tag” and “candy cane tag,” and work on engineering a snowflake.

Drop Off & Shop: Cookie Theme

Ages: 4 to 12 years old (ages may vary by club)
Length: Typically 3 hours

This event is sure to be sweet: Kids will create hot cocoa and gingerbread house paper crafts. They’ll also run around in the gym playing “gingerbread man tag” and “gum drop dash.”

Pre-K kids will create a bridge for the gingerbread man, while school-aged kids will do a shopping bag STEAM challenge.

Kids NYE Party

Ages: 4 to 12 years old (ages may vary by club)
Length: Typically 3 hours

Hip, hip, hooray, let’s par-tay! Kids will celebrate the new year a day early with a cardio dance party, crazy freeze dance, and dancing dot games. Glitter slime, fizzing confetti, and glitter fireworks are just a preview of the fun crafts they’ll create.

Common FAQs About Kids Events

Tori Limmel, Kids curriculum manager at Life Time, shares answers to commonly asked questions from parents.

Life Time Editorial | What can I expect if I sign my child up for a Life Time Kids event?

Tori Limmel | Each event has a theme, and we build the curriculum around that so there are always fun, new activities for kids to take part in. There are two themes per month, each offered on two different dates. The first two weeks of the month feature the first theme, and the second two weeks, the other. This helps us accommodate family schedules and allows a greater chance for every child to attend every theme if they wish.

Regardless of the theme, every curriculum follows an intentionally designed format: There’s always arts and crafts time, a STEAM project, a gym game or a sports activity — or some combination of those. Then, we always serve dinner, which is usually pizza and juice.

Events typically last two to three hours and can accommodate kids ages 4 to 12 years old (ages may vary by club based on state requirements). Tween Takeover events are generally for kids ages 9 to 13 years old, though that may vary by club as well.

Our Life Time Kids team members go through training before being entrusted with your kids. This training includes CPR training, a child-development course, and a classroom-management course to ensure your kids are in the safest hands.

LTE | When do kids’ events take place?

TL | Kids’ events occur every Saturday. Depending on the club, there may also be additional events on Fridays.

LTE | Do parents need to stay at the club while their child is attending an event?

TL | No. Parents can leave the club or stay on site. Most often, we see parents using this time in the club, whether that be to take a fitness class, use the space and machines on the workout floor, relax in the sauna or steam room, grab a bite to eat in the LifeCafe, or hit the pickleball court with friends.

LTE | Is there a cost to these events? And do you have to be a Life Time member to participate?

TL | All Kids events are included at no cost in Junior Memberships. Your child does need to be on a Life Time Junior Membership to attend the events.

LTE | How do I sign my child up for an event?

TL | Reservations can be made up to 30 days prior to each event. View the schedule on or in the Life Time Digital app by clicking “View All Events” and under “Activity,” filtering by “Kids.”
