Drop In And Play

Winter in New England means you’ll need an indoor spot to hang with the littles. Thankfully, The PlayPlace in Somerville is open and ready to entertain. Explore all of the creative play areas with your tykes—there’s a kitchen, mini ball pit, and building block site. Or, if they’re entertaining themselves, you can sit back and enjoy free coffee, tea, and WiFi while connecting with other parents. There's a free "lending library" for parents and caregivers, and even a drop-off and play option if you’ve got to get those errands done. You’ll just have to pay $10 an hour for a PlayPlace-approved sitter in addition to the $12 admission fee ($6 for siblings; sibs under 6 months are free; babies 0-7 months are $8).

The PlayPlace is located at 15a Elm St., Somerville; 617.237.0254.
