Summer is coming and what says summer more than ice cream? Members of Brattleboro’s KidsPLAYce have decided to make last summer’s& experimental – and successful – ice cream stand permanent. They will offer nine flavors of locally made Chelsea Royal Ice Cream and a variety of toppings, as well as snacks and drinks. KidsPLAYce is a nonprofit space located underneath the Hotel Pharmacy where children come together and play on climbing stuructures, create their own arts and crafts projects, and learn about some live animals, inlcuidng fish, lizards and a python, up close and personal, says The Brattleboro Reformer. The group is trying new ways – of which selling ice cream was one – to get more involved in community activities and programs. The space can be rented out for kids’ birthday parties, complete with ice cream for all the guests enjoy.
