North Hills' kids programs have proved so popular that organizers have expanded it.
North Hills in Raleigh launched North Hill Kids in April with daily activities for kids and families in the "grassy" area next to the Starbucks and Ben & Jerry's.
This month, after lots of requests, North Hills expanded to offer free play from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays after the hour-long Traveling Teacher presentation on Tuesday and storytime on Friday. Free play involves lots of big colorful blocks that kids can run, jump and climb over. The green is fenced off so you don't have to worry about your kids running into the street.
I spoke with Brie of North Hills last month ... when they hadn't yet expanded to include the Tuesday and Friday free plays. So my interview with her is a little dated. But it will give you some idea of what free play and the Traveling Teacher Show looks like.
