We’re pretty lucky here in the DEEP south when it comes to avoiding long stretches of frigid temps, but we do get our share of cold snaps and that can leave us scrambling for some activities that will help the kiddos work those wiggles out, and not leave us popsicles in the process.
Here are some great places to go for fun when the playgrounds become the frozen tundra!
Your local library! As you know, your library can be a great resource for so many things, including regular storytimes. We have many of their schedules listed on our events calendar, make sure to check those out when you’re looking for some indoor fun.
