Rainy days are here again, and that can lead to cabin fever when kids — and parents — don't get out to play.
After you've taken the family to the new Century cinemas, Napa Bowl, the Napa Firefighters Museum downtown and the Napa Valley Museum in Yountville, where else can you look for indoor entertainment?
Last year, during our Moms Talk series, I asked some Napa mothers how they kept the kids amused when storms move in for days on end.
Lola Cornish-Nickens, of Community Resources for Children in Napa, doesn't believe in letting the clouds, rain and puddles hold you back.
"I am ... a strong supporter of going out to play – yes, even when it’s muddy and rainy!" she said.
Cathy Felder backed her up: "Few things are more fun than splashing in puddles," she said.
For indoor adventures, both Cornish-Nickens and Julie Gerien recommended Scientopia Discovery Center at 1785 Tanen St.: "the perfect place to play away a rainy day," in Lola's words.
"We also sometimes head to PB&J's bounce house if the kids seem like they have a lot of energy," Gerien added.
"The library is another easy place," she said.
All of those spots have their appeal, as does simply playing in the rain. But if you've got more suggestions for rainy days, we would love to hear them!
