Play Group

  • Oct 23, 2012 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

I've noticed a lot of new members have preschool and toddler age kids and are interested in play groups. There are a lot of great free and lowcost places to get together in Columbus. Parks, COSI, and Firefly Play Cafe are possibilities.

If you're interested in getting together for play group, please post in the comments. Let us know if weekdays or weekends are better, the ideal time for you, and what you'd like to do.

Hosts will be needed for playgroup. The only requirements are to be reliable, be at the selected site 15 minutes early, and to greet people and make everyone feel welcome. Due to the demands of parenthood, each event should have a main host and a backup host.

    I missed that we had a playgroup! So sorry! We could make the[masked] one. We could also host one at our house though we'll have houseguests the week of Thanksgiving.

    It would seem that a lot of folks can not make a play group during the weekdays, so I'm wondering how many people would be interested in one on Sunday Nov. 11 at 4:00 - 6:00. We could maybe make individual pizzas with the kids for dinner (that's just a thought). Let me know if that time works for most people. We could also open this up to kids from toddlers through elementary school, even younger and older although I'm not sure how much they would get out of the group. We could still have it at my house, at least until the weather warms up and we find better arrangements. My house is kinda small. I'm just through this out there. I'm going to try and find days and times that work well for all of us. Thank you, Angela

    We would be very interested in a playgroup. Our daughter is 2.5 years old as well. She's home with my husband during the week so he could go to something with her on weekdays or we could all go on the weekend.

    Hey there! I'd be thrilled to have a playgroup though weekends would be the only time we could meet up. I have a 2.5 year old little girl:)

    Hi, I'm an atheist dad with a 2 1/2 girl. I'd like her to play with more secular kids. We're home days tues - fri. (I work weekends). Outdoors is nice now.

    I can usually make any day but Wednesday as long as there isn't a doctor apt. I do drop off at preschool on @ 9:15 so I could get to a meetup by 10 if not earlier on non preschool days. We could do parks, firefly (It gets pretty crowded on weekday mornings by 10:30), or graeters on bethel has a play area.

    That's great, Kim! A couple of parents have already responded positively on facebook. I think starting out with a monthly playgroup meetup would be good, so please suggest a couple of days that are usually good for you like the 3rd Wednesday at 10 am, etc.

    What a great idea Sue! I am very interested. I am a stay at home mom so I am free for playgroups during the weekday mornings and weekends. If it is something I can make it to, I would be happy to host :)
