How bad are soft play centres on a saturday in the summer? I have a 2.9yo and an 11mo and I only go during term time when it's quiet but my step mum wants to take them to a soft play this saturday. I can't go as I'm recovering from a hysterectomy and I'm thinking she doesn't know whats she's letting herself in for . I'm possibly being a bit neurotic but I am dreading it being like a mini Lord of the Flies and it will end in tears.
I only ever go on a Monday morning in term time. Blissful then - DD2 has often been the only one there. That's how I like it.
With OP, it could go one of two ways in that as it's the holidays, a lot of the kids who usually go at the weekends only will have been during the week, so they will do something else and it will be quieter this Saturday.
hmmmm, I think I will suggest my step mum avoids it. I don't think she knows what she is letting herself in for. She seems to think it will be a nice play for ds while she sits down with dd. In reality she will be watching 2.9yo ds like a hawk so the big children don't bash him and carting 11mo dd round with her. I can think of better things to do with them.
I love soft play during term time when it's quiet, but school holidays are not fun.
