Kids Rainy Day Sanity Savers

posted on | updated on | by Zuri Girl

It’s raining and dreary – a phrase we’ve heard way too much. Wouldn’t it be lovely to sit home watching movies? Oh wait…what’s that you hear…”MOMMY”…the daydream is over…back to reality…you are now the mom of a hyper, high-energy child.

The Sanity Saver: Indoor playgrounds! Although there aren’t many in central Zurich, there’s a whole lot of fun to be had not to far away and Zuri Girl rounded up her favorites.

Enjoy mommas!

Indoor Playground Survival Tips

1. Don’t forget socks. All playgrounds require socks are worn.

2. These guys know marketing and there’s ton of candy & sweets for sale. Pack a few snacks / sweets in your bag to help avoid spending too many francs on extra purchases.

3. Prosecco is available at the café and there’s nothing wrong with having a glass while the kids play!

4. Go with a friend so the kid’s can explore together.

5. Almost all the indoor playgrounds host birthday parties. Winter babies are in luck.

6. It’s an indoor playground so expect lots of kids and chaos as it’s often super crowded. Do some yoga breahting before you go!
