And while I am on the subject of cabin fever and bad/cold weather, another great option for getting out of the house with a baby/toddler – is an indoor playground!
Those are available everywhere. Unlike drop-ins, they aren’t free – but the fee is manageable, usually around $5-10 bucks.
Now that Timothy is crawling everywhere, we decided to pay visit to our local indoor playground.
It’s a relatively small-sized room with a couple of real-size slides, a bouncy castle, a climbing wall, an infant area with infant toys and an exersaucer, and a food area complete with microwave, kettle, and coffee – for moms 🙂
It was FUN! Timothy wasn’t so sure about the slide. He went all rigid… I think he was scared. But he absolutely loved the bouncy castle – which we tried once all the older kids left!
And he loved being around other babies.
And he loved all that space available for crawling around!
I think we will be going there regularly for the years to come!
