Family Friendly Activities To Fight Off Cabin Fever
You’ve been stuck inside from snowy days and cold temperatures. When winter melted, the rain kept you and your family inside too, and now you’re going crazy! We’ve all hit cabin fever this spring, but now that it looks like the sun is here to stay, it’s time to have some family fun!
In Columbus, making great memories is easy, and we have the perfect list of family friendly activities to shake off the stuck-at-home blues! Check out our favorite outings that kids and parents alike enjoy in the spring.
A Fun-Filled Weekend
You’re gonna love getting out of the house to enjoy time with your family when you try our favorite activities. Whether you’re a high-energy or a more laidback group, you’ll find something for everyone on this list.
Visit The Zoo!
Got any animal lovers in your family? Maybe it’s time to visit the zoo! Whether you’re young or old, the zoo has something for everyone to enjoy. From the adorable and cuddly animals to the exotic and mysterious creatures, there’s never a dull moment at the zoo.
One of the best parts of zoo visits are the learning opportunities for kids and adults alike. Learn about different animals, see them in their habitats, and watch their behavior in a fun and interactive way. Plus, many zoos also offer educational programs and shows designed to make the experience even more fun for kids of all ages. Spend the next sunshiney day at The Columbus Zoo And Aquarium! Find out more about all they have to offer at their website here.
Try Indoor Climbing
If you’re looking for a high-energy and exciting activity that the whole family can enjoy, indoor climbing is where it’s at. Indoor climbing gyms are excellent at creating a variety of climbing scenarios for every age and skill level. Does climbing high sound scary? Spend your time on bouldering walls. Don’t feel like climbing, but want to support that eager middle child? Get a quick course and learn how to run the climbing ropes from the ground, called belaying.
Indoor climbing offers a safe and controlled environment for climbers of all skill levels, making it the perfect activity for families to enjoy together. Plus, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of accomplishment when you reach the top of that climbing wall. A popular Columbus indoor climbing gym is Vertical Adventures in the Worthington area. Check out their walls and more at their website here!
Visit A Children’s Museum!
If you want to combine fun and education on the next spring day, look no further than the children’s museum. Children’s museums offer a wide range of interactive exhibits that are both entertaining and educational.
From hands-on science experiments to art workshops, there’s always something new to discover. And unlike traditional museums, children’s museums encourage visitors to touch, explore, and interact with the exhibits. Whether your child is a budding scientist, artist, or adventurer, they’re sure to find something that sparks their imagination at the children’s museum. So, grab the kids and head to your nearest children’s museum for a day of fun and learning. Columbus boasts one of the best all-ages museums in the state: COSI! Find their admission prices and hours on their website here.
Go Axe Throwing!
When it comes to making memories together, there’s no family activity like axe throwing! Not only is it a great way to release any pent-up stress or frustration (in a safe and controlled environment, of course), but it’s also easy to pick up and enjoy watching.
Now, you may be a little nervous about sharp axes around your kids. What’s the Dueling Axes child policy? Well, we’ve seen kids as young as 4 handle an axe with confidence, and after some determination they’ve stuck one into the target. But if you’re wondering the ideal age, kids ten years and up tend to have no problem with hitting a bullseye, and with a parent or guardian’s permission, we say “let it fly!”
Get Family Fun At Dueling Axes!
You’ll be surprised how skilled your kids are on the throwing lane. They might even beat you! So reserve a lane, gather up your family and head to Dueling Axes for a fun-filled day of competition and laughter!
