Twin Cities Indoor Playgrounds and Play Areas Guide

We all know the realities of raising kids in the Minnesota extremities: there’s got to be a place to go were we can escape the elements while still allowing those kids a place to burn off that extra energy. Enter our Twin Cities Indoor Playgrounds and Play Areas list. We hope you can use it to find a new space to wear those littles out — and perhaps catch yourself a break.

Twin Cities Family Wellness Guide sponsored by Blooma

Family wellness is more than just another New Year’s Resolution.  While the new year spurs thoughts of big changes in our fitness habits or our nutrition, we want to encourage you to think beyond losing that extra 15 pounds.  We want you to consider your health in all areas of your life including mental health, physical health, and relation health.

Family Wellness Guide Blooma

Blooma has partnered with us to bring you this Twin Cities Family Wellness Guide. Together we want to help your family strive for wellness.  And Family Wellness can be fun like yoga classes for kids and mama support groups and shopping together at the Farmer’s Market.

5 Reasons to Be a Blooma Family

blooma-logoWe were super excited when Blooma invited Family Fun Twin Cities to try a yoga class, specifically a prenatal yoga class.  Don’t get any ideas.  Nobody on the FFTC team is pregnant, but yoga is fun. You don’t have to be pregnant to enjoy it.  So I found a time on my calendar and made my way over to the new Plymouth location they share with yogamn.

10 Things for Kids: Pinwheel Play in Chanhassen

Pinwheel PlayThere’s a new play space in town! Located off of Highway 5 in Chanhassen, Pinwheel Play is an incredibly fun modern destination.

Pinwheel Play let us check out their space for free.  All opinions are mine.

Lisa Perkins Smith, with her husband Bryon, opened Pinwheel Play because they couldn’t find a play space that fit their needs.  They wanted a place that was clean, welcoming and catered to many types of open-ended play for the younger set.

It was hard to whittle this list down to 10 things; I was very impressed with this well-planned space.

Soccer, Anyone? Lil’ Kickers in the Twin Cities

Lil' Kickers

Lil’ Kickers

This fall, the Twin Cities was invaded by a soccer revolution called Lil’ Kickers.  This program works with the child’s stage of  physical development more than simply teaching basic soccer techniques.

For a fair review, FFTC was given the opportunity to take a free session of the Skills Institute.  So I registered my boys and off we went.  This review is completely my own thoughts, and I don’t have many bad things to say because my boys LOVED it so much.

10 Things for Kids: Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis

Stone Arch Bridge is a historical destination for many locals.  Besides walking across the bridge, I wondered, what is there to do? It took an out-of-stater–my friend Melody from GRKids to help me to appreciate all the different things to do. We found all kinds of things!  A plethora of parks that meet together, for one. And history.  Lots of history.
