UPDATED SEPTEMBER 2019
As a mom living on the rainy west coast I’m well accustomed to getting the kids geared up in their Muddy Buddies and heading outside during our rainy season aka – October – April. However, some days pushing a soggy stroller and dealing with muddy buddies, and wet boots simply doesn’t appeal and I have to find an indoor activity to entertain the kids and keep my sanity.
Please find a list below of our favourite kid-friendly indoor activities across South Surrey & White Rock.
If there’s something we’re missing please that should be added to the list please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
