We have two small connected rooms off the dining room which are set up for small children. One has active toys for building, a "kitchen" area, art supplies, dressup clothes, etc. and a small, low, working sink. The other room has a couch, cushions and books and is intended for quieter activities. there is a half bath separating the two rooms. They are heavily used during meals (yes!) and meetings and are the location for play groups and general wet weather playing. Parents are responsible for seeing things are picked up when their kids have used the room and it mostly works OK. Down in the basement we have a "rec" room which has a ping pong table and pool table and a couple of honky tonk pianos (we have a good piano in the living room) as well as a carpeted area with bean bag chairs, board games and stuff; there's also a TV but I'm not sure it works! This is where some of the older kids hang out after school and it also provides a space for little guys to scooter around in wet/icy weather while parents are doing the laundry and such. It also gets used for community art projects and we keep trying to organize tai chi classes there! We also have a library, which is a pleasant small room on the first floor with a splendid collection of books, a table and chairs, which some of the teens use for homework after school as well as for small meetings. The living room gets used for cards and board games but we don't encourage active playing there. Rowena Cambridge Cohousing -
