The Play’s the Thing


When there’s a chunk of time in the schedule and we’ve teetered our last totter, it’s time to look for some creative spaces. Luckily, there are two new uptown outposts on the Bayview/Leaside strip better known for strollers than hipsters.

First up is Play Creative Cafe, a two-level space where adults can enjoy an amazing illy coffee and some carbilicious treats while the kids try their hand at cool crafts. Popping over to visit mom for snacks is de rigeur, of course, but once they find the air hockey table in the basement, we may be able to finish our scone uninterrupted. Drama, drumming and knitting classes round out the offerings.

Almost right next door is Bamboo Bay, featuring a variety of music and art classes and the coveted craft drop-in, featuring crafts like animal masks, beaded necklaces, and other projects more advanced than what the home studio produces. A lovely retail store allows us to turn our sorry craft cupboard into something magical.

So long, slide. Hello maker magic.

Let your little Pollock loose in someone else’s space. We’ve got 10 Play Centres in Toronto.
