Is the weather making it difficult to play outside? Between Chicagoland’s heat waves and cold fronts, it can be difficult to give your kids a way to burn off all that extra energy. Thankfully, there are plenty of indoor play areas all over the south suburbs… if you know where to look! We’ve rounded up all the places you can head inside to play when it’s just too hot out, too cold out, or you want to mix up your routine a bit. This article is sponsored by Sky Zone in Joliet.
