There are just two more Saturdays left for the inaugural season of “The Family Room” at the The Woodland in Maplewood.
Starting February 6, the South Mountain YMCA and the Maplewood Department of Recreation and Cultural Affairs joined forces to offer The Family Room: Exploration at Your Doorstep on Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. to noon, providing a morning of science, dance, building blocks, story time, art, play and GaGa pit fun for children ages 6 months to 11 years.
Activities for tiny tots are upstairs in the “parlor.” The bigger kids are downstairs in the main room. Each activity features a staffer to monitor and facilitate play, said Eric Stoddard of the Y.
It’s a great way for families and kids to connect. Plus, there’s coffee — for the grownups only.
The final two dates are Saturday, April 2 and Saturday, April 9, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The cost is $20/family for each date.
