Indoor Play Guide

This post is sponsored by Chiropractic Company – Oconomowoc. 

Are you kids going crazy at your house?  It can be hard sometimes due to the weather, hot OR cold, to find some indoor play fun.  I love taking the kids out to go explore the Lake Country area, Waukesha County and even Metro-Milwaukee area and find the most kid friendly businesses and letting everyone know about them.  This is definitely a perk of being Mom, I get to play too sometimes 🙂 What’s life without any fun? Am I right? Scroll down to find 30+ places for indoor play!

Whether it is the cold weather you are trying to escape, or the heat that is making you run for shade, this is the guide for you for fun in the Lake Country and Waukesha County area.  Please visit each website to find when they have open play times, and their hours. Plus, follow the links to our INSTAGRAM to see the fun we had while visiting these places!
