With rain in the forecast, parents will be looking for indoor activities to keep the kids entertained. Indoor play areas are the perfect fun venue for preschoolers as well as parents. Be sure to wear socks and get ready to slide, jump and play. Most places donot allow shoes, even for non-bouncing parents. (This is also great for a cleaner environment!) The slides are sanitized and inspected for safe, good, clean fun. Climb to the top of a giant inflatable and slide down. Wiggle through an obstacle course, go through tunnels, climb cargo nets, play bouncy basketball or use ball cannons. All of these activities are included in the session price. There are usually sibling discounts as well as parents play for free. Some places even offer themed bounces. Wouldn't it be fun to wear glow in the dark accessories while bouncing in the dark? This is geared for older kids. Many of these are also party spaces. Double check the open play schedules before heading out. The staff are often teenagers who love interacting with the kids. They seem to have almost as much fun as your children.
