When rainy days ruin your outdoor plans, let the kids bounce off the walls…just not yours. Let them paint and make crafts…just not at your house.  Here are some of our favorite indoor activities to do with kids in Metro Detroit!


Get Creative

Don’t worry about making a mess at home and head out for some arts and crafts. Drop in to a local art shop for pottery, painting and more. Or reserve tickets and explore the Detroit Institute of Arts for FREE (if you’re a resident of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties) to find inspiration from great artists throughout history.


Play Games

From go-karts to glow golf, trampolines, laser tag and lots of arcades the whole family will find something they love.


Go to an Indoor Playground

Get a coffee or a smoothie and let the kids have fun while you relax and chat with other parents.


Visit A Museum

Learn something new and have hands-on fun at a local museum. Take a road trip and find Thomas at Impression 5 in Lansing.


Bounce Off The Walls

Someone else’s walls…that is! Go to a Airborne, SkyZone, Pump It Up or Airtime and let the kids go crazy.


Beat The Heat

Find an indoor pool with water slides, splash pads and whirlpools.
