Winter Break Fun in Shelby County

It's Winter Break! Here's a few ideas of things to do around town for those needing to burn off some energy or get out of the house for a bit!

Spend the day at the Family Activity Center in Shelbyville. Who says you can't go swimming in the summer? They have a great indoor lap pool and indoor kiddie pool!  Check out their daily fees here.

If that's the case, hit the trails. We have some great ones in the area, especially the new Clear Creek Greenway Trail. If the weather's nice you could also try geocaching! It's free and fun!

Let the kids burn off some steam at Kaleidoscopes Indoor Playground. Kids are $6 each, and parents are free now! They can play all day for that price. They have great little areas set up for parents to relax or hook up to the wi-fi and get some work done. They also have a cute little restaurant! (I saw on their Facebook page that they are creating new exhibits and installing a new play feature this week- woohoo!)

Go watch a movie at Great Escape 8 Shelbyville. Did you know if you sign up to be a Regal Crown Club member (which is FREE to do) you can get popcorn for $2 every Tuesday!

Don't forget about Family Night at Baskin Robbins. From 5 to close on Tuesdays, kid's scoops are $1 and regular scoops are $1.50! It's never too cold for ice cream!

Check out the library's calendar! They will be open several days during Winter Break. Whether you're going to story time, using the computers, letting the kids do some puzzles/games in the children's area, or checking out books- there's always something to do at the library!

If you're looking for somewhere to drop the kids off for awhile (or most of the day) check out The Discovery Gym. They are having big kid camps and little kid camps before and after Christmas! You can register here. Don't forget to sign up starting after the New Year for their next session of gymnastics classes!

Give back to others in Shelby County! Here's some ideas on what you and your family can do to help others!
