Note: We were very sad to learn Peek-a-Boo Children’s Center closed in June 2014. For more play spaces in the area, try Greenlight Studio in Portland or The Rumpus Room in Brunswick. 

The Peek-a-Boo Children’s Center in Westbrook is one of our favorite indoor play spaces in Maine for good reason. Located in the Dana Warp Mill, the inviting space highlights creative and active play. Kids ages 0-5 will feel right at home. In fact, they may not want to leave. Little ones will enjoy the colorful, infant playroom with their parents, and older kids can explore the Cedar Works playground, sensory table or cool art space, to name a few.

Yes, this is a blog about all things kid-friendly, but every once and awhile, MP posts about something with fabulous Maine moms in mind.

In late January, the Cute Potato team visited the L.L.Bean Winter Carnival in Freeport. The outdoor carnival is an impressive event, where families get to try snowshoeing, ice fishing, cross country skiing, and more snowy day activities for free! The CP kids had a blast trying all of the activities, but their favorite by far was snow tubing down an expansive hill, again and again. It’s undeniable—L.L.Bean makes a super cool snow tube. And guess what? Today, you could win an L.L.Bean Sonic Snow Tube (regularly valued at $109) for your family!

If you’re a regular to Cute Potato, you know how much we adore Cathy Clicks photography. Scarborough photographer Cathy Davis, who is mom to four little ones, seems to effortlessly capture her subjects’ personalities. She’s patient, relaxed, and willing to try most any location. When the photo session is over, Cathy presents a bag of prizes to reward a job well done. So smart!
