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.

At Kids’ Fun Stop, children can ride on toys, play house, or dress up for imaginative play. A children's fire engine truck is one of the center’s play structures, which kids aged 6 or younger can climb and pretend to ride. The engine has plentiful company in the spacious play area, which encompasses a climbing structure, large spiral slide, and a rock cave. Kids create masterpieces at the art table, and children aged 2 or younger can spend time in a separate baby area. Parents can oversee playtime while humming along to the kid-friendly music or surfing the web on free WiFi.
