Here are my favorite finds for the week ahead!
The bouncy house list and the indoor playground list are all updated. You can find both, plus South Sound malls with play areas, under Rainy Day Play. Double check the indoor playgrounds before you go, as many will be closed for break. Bouncy houses, on the other hand, are likely to have extended hours. Have you visited my friends at Jump! yet? Tell them I sent you!
