Old Man Winter is has most definitely arrived, and with it he has brought below freezing temperatures and bone chilling wind. I don’t really mind having to stay in for a day or two because of the chilly weather, but after that the girls and I begin suffering from cabin fever. I am always looking for fun and inexpensive things to do with the girls especially in the winter.
Here are a few of our favorite spots:
Louisville Free Public Library:
The Louisville Free Public Library offers story time at many of its locations throughout the week. They have different times based upon the age of the child. They usually read a few stories, sing songs, and have a craft. It is a great way to get out of the house and socialize, and it’s completely free. You can find all the story times available here.
Oxmoor mall has a newly renovated children’s play area perfect for babies through preschoolers. Pottery Barn Kids is also located at Oxmoor. They offer a free story time and songs on Tuesday mornings at 11:00 am directly in front of the store. Oxmoor times and information can be found here.
My girls both love, and I do mean love, “Chicky Chicky,” as they call it. We have been known to come for breakfast and stay through lunch. The food and service are always top-notch, and the girls love the enclosed play area. They have a climbing structure and slide for preschoolers and older as well as a toddler play area for the little ones. You can find your local Chick-fil-a restaurant here.
All About Kids:
Susie has been taking classes at, All About Kids, since she was a just a toddler so we are well-known at their open gym play times. The cost is $9 for non members, but you can stay and play as much as want. They have a cafe that is available as well to purchase food and drinks. We will usually go when we can plan to stay a while. The open gym play schedule is available here.
We love taking the girls to the Village 8 theater, and on Tuesdays tickets are only $2. I like to keep an eye on what children’s movies they have playing here.
Winter is here to stay for a while, and although I am already ready for spring to be here. The girls and I are looking forward to some playtime at some of our favorite spots. We know they will most definitely help keep our cabin fever and winter blues away.
