Ahhh the rain is finally here. It looks like the first hurricane of the season is going to effect us over the next few days. I’m thankful for the rain, it’s been such a dry summer, but now I need get creative with some indoor fun.

Our top 5 indoor play spaces are:

  1. Imagine That Children’s Museum, Florham Park, NJ
    Imagine That! is $9.95/adults, $10.95/child.
    Open daily 10am – 5:30pm
    We love playing here, Brooklyn seems to have a different ‘favorite’ area each time we visit. It’s always more fun when we bring a friend.

2. Stepping Stones Museum for Children, Norwalk, CT
Stepping Stones is $15/adult, $15/child, under 1 free.
Normally open Monday through Sunday 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.
We used to be members here and visited often. The water feature is pretty unique and where we spent most of our time. They update the activities often so it has been a different experience each visit. Definitely worth a trip.

3. Legoland Discovery Center, Yonkers, NY
Legoland is $29.95/adult, $27.95/child 3-12, under 3 free.
Hours vary, check site. Normally open daily 10am -7pm
This is not the Legoland Amusement Park, it’s Lego’s Discovery Center version of the enterprise. We’ve been here twice, I don’t love it but Brooklyn does. It’s expensive, crowded and loud. There are a lot of interactive things for the kids to play with and a couple of carnival type rides. I’ll probably send her with her grandparents next time they visit 🙂

4. Hudon House of Play, Edgewater, NJ
$15/child, $12/siblings, $11/10 -24 months, $8/6 – 10 months, free/adults
Hours vary, during the week they are open: Mondays: 9:30am – 2pm, Tuesdays-Fridays: 9:30am – 6pm. Weekends get booked w/ private parties but sometimes have open play.

This place is super cute, super clean, and super small. It’s best for kids 5 and under. Be sure to bring socks, it’s a shoe-free play space.

5. Billy Beez, Palisades Mall, West Nyack, NJ

Bring socks.

This is probably our favorite indoor play space. We’ve been here many times and Brooklyn seems to enjoy herself more and more each visit. It will be several years until she outgrows this gem. This is the perfect play space for the super active kid!

We’ll probably be visiting each of these again this fall. When we do I’ll do a thorough review.

Hopefully we’ll all escape any hurricane disasters this year. If we just get rain and it’s warm enough, we’ll definitely be playing in it!
