  • The Kid's Place Boston
    Offering drop-in activities and group parties, The Kid’s Place unleashes children’s imaginations and gives them a place and the tools to express themselves through art. Owner Samara Lamm brings her experience as a child-psychology major and nursery school teacher into The Kid’s Place’s daily activities. She stimulates minds by challenging youth to mine for gemstones and by teaching them how to tie-dye T-shirts and white tuxedos. Visitors can also build mosaic pictures out of glass or hand-paint ceramic plates with holiday messages and handprints. Group parties also get the kids interacting socially with freeze dancing, games, and edible art options for those aged three and up.

  • Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals Boston
    Spotlighted in Time magazine and the New York Times, Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals is a nationally renowned program offering a unique take on musical education for children 6 months to 5 years old. Classes consist of 45 minutes of singing, dancing, and musical storytelling. Children's songsmith David Weinstone, whose insectivorous curriculum has exploded in popularity since 1997, passes the baton to Mid-Atlantic Songwriter's Award-winner Stacey Peasley so the tintinnabulous tones of tuneful tots might also ring out from the City on the Hill. Rather than being strict and results-driven, the teaching style at Music for Aardvarks is based on adult modeling and exposing children to ideas and sounds without dumbing them down. Parent participation is strongly encouraged for atonal squealers and former Yes drummers alike. Check the Music for Aardvarks website for the drop-in class schedules.

Designed by professional trainers, workouts maximize the body’s lean-muscle mass, which can boost metabolism and help fight off disease by challenging viruses to kickboxing matches. Exercisers can track their shrinking waistlines and swelling muscles online by analyzing workout scores and comparing individual fitness levels to the Koko FitClub community.
