Spring is so close you can almost feel it and I spend my days dreaming about warm weather and play dates with my friends at neighboring parks. Yet in reality, the weather is cold and uncooperative. Luckily we are fortunate to live in a community that has a lot of fun indoor activities to take advantage of. So read on to discover Miami County Live’s top 5 indoor activities to do while it’s cold outside!
Wee Music Studio: If your child is 4 ½ or younger make sure to check out the Wee Music Studio. Classes are hosted downtown on Saturdays by appointment. This class is designed to let parents and children make music in a way that feels natural. This is done by combining music, singing, instruments, and clapping. This is a great way to expose your child to music. Sign up is required and there is a fee for the classes. For more information view their Facebook page.
Brukner Nature Center: If you enjoy learning about or being in nature then look no further than Brukner Nature Center. Seated at the end of a long driveway off of Horseshoe Bend Rd. in the western part of Troy. Brukner offers many options for families looking for some educational entertainment. Inside the interpretive building, you will find photo’s, art and nature exhibits. Outside there is also a log cabin and Brukner is surrounded by beautiful walking trails and a pond making it a great place to enjoy no matter the season!

Jumpy’s Fun Zone: Is your child going a little stir crazy? If they are driving you nuts running around your house then Jumpy’s Fun Zone is the place to bring them! Kids of all ages are able to find fun at Jumpy’s Fun Zone. Filled with an arcade, jump houses, a toddler zone, and laser zone it’s easy to spend hours having fun!

Overfield Tavern Museum: If you are into history look no further than the Overfield Tavern Museum. Built-in 1808 by Benjamin Overfield, it has since been transformed into an early 19th-century museum showing what daily life was like at that time and is the oldest surviving building in Troy, Ohio. For museum times and information go to their website.
Piqua Mall Play Area: If you are looking for something free and laid back to do when the weather is less than cooperative then take your little one to the Piqua Mall Play Area. This adorable play area is housed right outside the play court and has slides and things to climb on, in and around. There is also seating for parents along the perimeter inside making it easy to keep an eye on your child. Make sure to bring socks as shoes are not allowed!
