Children bang on pots and pans for entertainment, attention, and to determine the Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient of the two. Keep kids from data mining your sanity with today's Groupon: for $16, you get four passes to Imagination at Play, located in Buford (up to a $32 value).
Imaginations at Play's indoor play center cultivates young minds through fun, interactive games geared toward building cognitive development. With a variety of play spaces designed for children ages 6 months to 8 years, Imagination at Play can keep the kiddos entertained for the whole day—and each pass guarantees a full-day admission. Parents are encouraged to play alongside the miniature adults and supervise. At the Musical Tree center, would-be musicians can play the instruments, a prime practice for future in-tree performances with cookie-cobbling elves. Budding veterinarians can practice administering exams on the soft, stuffed animals in the vet clinic, and kids can interact with a small-scale city and conduct the trains at the Big City Dig, which includes two large crawl-through spaces so kids can get front-row views of the tracks. Those still on all fours can explore the Baby Builders area's padded floors, packed with toys for motor-skill development.
