Family Friendly Indoor Activities

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

When my family was in town a few weeks ago, we had our standard ‘visitor plan.’ We would walk around the neighborhood, showing everyone our favorite spots, taking a stroll to the park where James plays most weekdays, and heading out to a nice meal. However, due to the rain, we were stuck indoors with no backup plan in mind.  After devising this list of indoor activities, I’m excited to embark on new adventures with our visitors! While some of these are only available to our local Brooklyn neighborhood, there should be similar options in a town near you!

Brooklyn Children’s Museum

Brooklyn Public Library

Prospect Park or Central Park Zoo (has many indoor activities)

Toddler Time at SkyZone (weekends only)

New York Aquarium

New York Transit Museum

Industry City 

Indoor Play Spaces (MonkeyDo!, Gymboree, Curiosity on Court, Good Day Play Cafe etc)


If you are stuck inside your own home, here are some activities to keep busy:

Board Games

Coloring (We take a big piece of easel board paper and tape it to the floor)

Art With Stickers

Make a Fort

Dance Parties (we do these daily!)

Scavenger Hunt 

Sing Songs

Read Books in a Fun Spot

Tea Party

Bake a Treat
