Play Time's Never Over 

Tired of listening to the endless blips and bloops of video games? Would you like those child-size dents in your sofa cushions to disappear? The Magic House (516 South Kirkwood Road, Kirkwood; 314-822-8900 or www.magichouse.org) opens its new Play Garden this week, just in time for summer. From 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday (May 25 through September 7), your kids can — maybe "should" — Play It Cool, by partaking in non-digital recreation. Every week, a new theme is introduced in the Play Garden, such as water play, parachute play, ball games, circle games and outdoor art. These games come with no reset button, and there's no cartridge to buy; these are the classics, like jump rope, Duck, Duck, Goose, and even the nameless, rule-less and endless game that develops when a gaggle of kids are given a ball and space to run. Admission to the Play Garden is free with the Magic House's regular $8.50 admission.
