Indoor Play

We're grateful to our sponsors for making this resource possible for local parents!

Indoor play spaces can be the answer to a mama’s prayers when those days are endlessly rainy, cold, or excessively hot!

However, indoor play isn’t just for when the weather isn’t cooperating…
sometimes it’s just a perfectly fun way to spend an afternoon.

This list is full of our locally sourced favorite indoor play destinations!

  1. Another great one is Jump and Jacks in West Chester. They have a huge indoor playground and bounce houses on certain nights… our 4 year old could spend hours there!

  2. Also check out Get Air Trampoline Park in Huber Heights and in Miamisburg and in West Chester. They have Toddler Time for 46″ and under on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday mornings. Open jump every day.
