It’s Mid-Winter Break and while we LOVE being with our kids, it can be exhausting trying to figure out what to do with them all day! Here some ideas that will keep you inside…but out of the house.


President’s Day Fun

School’s out for President’s Day – here are some fun things to do on Monday and all week long.


Celebrate Black History Month

Winter break is a great time to teach your littles about the accomplishments and contributions of black Americans with a trip to the Cultural Center in Midtown Detroit (all of these venues are walking steps away from each other.


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.


Bring Back Summer

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


Try Something New

Let the littles run around and be silly with knockerball (aka bubble soccer), use a football to knock down bowling pins at fowling in Hamtramck or Auburn Hills or shake up hide and seek at the Detroit Dart Club.


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.
