Yes, it rains in the beautiful PNW – that’s what makes it so green here! Some people are worried that there is nothing fun for kids when the weather isn’t so great…THAT’S NOT TRUE! One great place to visit for JBLM area indoor play is the Children’s Museum of Tacoma. I have taken my kids here numerous times and they love it! One of my favorite things is that it is donation based only! You don’t have to break the bank to go! They do have days that are not open to the public so make sure you check the hours before you go. Mondays are reserved for members only and Tuesdays are reserved for special needs play.

The kids can spend hours here and be completely entertained! There is also a cafe in the lobby if drinks or snacks are needed. I love that there is plenty of space to sit and watch your children play, sometimes places like this lack seating areas. The staff is always wandering around as well to make sure everyone is enjoying themselves and that all the rules are being followed.

My daughter also did a summer camp here and she really enjoyed it. It was five days and from 9am-2pm and the kids were required to pack a lunch. It was a great intro into what kindergarten was going to be like. The camps are a little pricey, but I’m really glad that we did it. They also offer a bunch of other stuff as well:

After we have our fun at the museum, we always head over to Hello Cupcake for a special treat so make sure to check that out as well!
