Help a Mom: Where are your favorite indoor spots to play?

Posted January 7, 2014

PlayNation in Morrisville

It's cold! And, while the forecast looks like it might be a tad bit warmer on Wednesday (and I'm using the word "warm" loosely here), it's still a day where kids will likely want to spend most of the day inside.

For what it's worth, I grew up in upstate New York where we spent lots of time playing out in cold temperatures and snow. My kids don't have all of the layers I had growing up. But we aren't above bundling up with what we do have and running around the yard to burn some energy off when it's this cold out. Obviously, you should be aware of cold-temperature illness, but a quick jaunt around the yard isn't a bad idea for most.

So that brings me to the point of this post: I wrote about indoor activities and open gyms earlier this week. I'd love to hear about your favorite indoor places for kids to play when the weather is too cold or too warm for lots of time outdoors.

Do you have a favorite museum, inflatable place, gym, pool or other destination? Please share your experience in the comments box below.
