Indoor Play Spaces in Pittsburgh Heather Hopson December 31, 2016 Uncategorized Dear Diary, Although winter isn’t officially underway on December 21st, the snow and temperatures are falling. But don’t let Mother Nature rain on your family’s parade. Your kids can still run, jump and play-they will just do it inside. Being cooped up in the house, especially when it’s cold and dreary outdoors, can cause your family to get stuck in a winter rut. To cheer up your children, take a drive to these indoor play spaces for various ages. Babies The Pittsburgh Toy Lending Library in Shadyside is a fun indoor play space with a toy lending library for children from birth through age six. Members can borrow a toy or two from more than 400 selections. There’s also an art space, where kids can color, paint and make crafts from an endless supply of materials, like beads and tissue paper. Toddlers Now through January 17th, tots can have a grr-ific time at the Daniel the Tiger exhibit at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh on the Northside. They can play dress up and pretend to be their favorite characters from the show; write a thank you note and attach it to the Thank You Tree; and they can sort, deliver and receive mail and packages at the Neighborhood Post Office.
