OTHER IDEAS

If none of these indoor spaces are making you put on your shoes, consider one of these ideas:

  • Public libraries often have areas for kids to play and read.
  • YMCAs sometimes have open play areas that even non-members can use. Their indoor pools are sometimes available for non-members as well.
  • You have a McDonald’s or Chick-fil-A with a play place near you?
  • Walk around at the mall, visit their play area, or spend a little money on the ride-on toys or mall train.
  • How about lacing up for some roller skating or ice skating?
  • Have you taken the kids bowling lately? Consider trying duckpin or mini bowling, too!
