There’s not much left of 2017! Winter Break is coming and it won’t be long before you start hearing “I’m Bored” and “There’s nothing to do”. Here is a quick and easy list of things to do in Northeast WI to keep those kids busy and create some lasting memories.
2.) Try Rollerskating! – There are Roller Rinks throughout Northeast WI.
3.) Check out a Kids Museum! These are educational, fun and spark their imaginations. Not to mention this keeps the kids busy for hours!
4.) What about a Movie? Take those kids out to see a movie on the Big Screen either during prime time or catch a matinee. (especially when we have $5 Tuesdays at Marcus Cinemas)
5.) Find a Bowling Alley and get some strikes and have some laughs!
6.) Find an Ice Skating Rink! There are plenty of either Indoor or Outdoor Rinks in our Area.
7.) Race down a hill on a sled or tube. Many Tubing hills have started making their own snow. Just call before going to make sure they are open.
