7 things to do this weekend

Finally! I know my family was excited for the snow. We bundled up and had a blast at one of the areas best sledding hills. If you don’t feel like piling everyone in the car and heading to the hills we have some great ideas for fun snow play at home! It doesn’t look like the snow will stick around so if you don’t get the chance to play in the snow but your crew still wants outdoor time check out these mud-free playgrounds. The slushy, wet ground won’t wreak havoc on your kicks at these fun options.  

If you need a mid-week boredom buster we highly recommend getting face to face with the Dragons & Mythical Beasts in Anderson on Wednesday, February 1. It is such a fun way to interact with the legendary creatures from the past.

What is your favorite cold weather, family activity? Stay safe, warm and #PLAYIndy this weekend.
