If we don’t provide creative outlets for children’s imaginations, we run the risk that their daydreams will come true, cursing adults with ice-cream diets and sass from speaking dogs. Preemptively protect the fabric of reality with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a 10-pass punch card to GreenLight Studio on Dartmouth Street (an $85 value). Each punch is good for admission for two adults and one child.
GreenLight Studio's 3,500 open-square-feet of play space taps the boundless energy reserves of children up to age 6, while a relaxing café revitalizes their caregivers. The children's area is replete with toys and spaces that encourage creative play as kids act out their favorite fantasies by pretending to be pirates, dinosaurs, and actuaries. Flameless energy burners include a kid-sized climbing wall, two-story play house, and small jungle-gym structure. Spongy brains get a workout with a train set, mini pirate ship, and toddler-friendly toys. Regular classes cultivate movement and creativity with parachute play and guitar jam sessions, and art and yoga classes are available for an additional fee.
While kids engage in brain-boosting play, weary kid-keepers can unwind at the café, stocked with coffee, teas, and sandwiches. Juice and healthy snacks are also available for postplay refueling (today’s deal is not valid toward café purchases).

Greenlight Studio helps busy parents relax as they sip coffee or tea in a cafe that is located right in the kids' open play space. There, youngsters can have fun as they scamper on the climbing wall and dome, or check out the art area. Under new ownership since the summer of 2015, the studio also includes a second, separate community cafe space that features a menu of toasty panini sandwiches, muffins, and smoothies to help keep stomachs from growling. The cafe space is open to the public and is for those who do not have children in the play space.
