Cabin fever. Winter doldrums. Snow fatigue. Whatever you prefer to call it, it’s the dead of winter and folks are tired of staying indoors. No sooner does the sun come out and the temperatures warm up a little (and by warm I mean the 30s or 40s), than my hopes of an early spring are quickly dashed by another onslaught of snow and ice.
So what’s a person to do until spring? Indoor activities such as seeing a movie, going bowling, or watching football (sorry about the Colts!) are likely weekend diversions, but what about the kids? Little ones crave physical exercise and mental stimulation, and building yet another snowman isn’t likely to divert them for long.
Here’s what you can do: Bundle up the family and bring them to Conner Prairie. We have indoor activities designed to entertain the children and give mom and dad a needed respite. Visit Discovery Station
where the children can engage in meaningful hands-on play with an historic theme. Stop by Craft Corner
, watch the video, look at the indoor historic exhibits, take a picture of the kids next to the cannon in the Great Hall, or shop in The Museum Store
. All this winter fun is free for members and only $5 for non-members, with limited weekend hours during the remainder of the winter months. Call us in Guest Services for details.
Don’t spend another weekend in front of the TV. Come on over to Conner Prairie and stretch your legs as well as your mind!
