The Indoor Play Bucket List

Are you looking for our latest Indoor Play list? Check it out here!

The heat is here! Monsoon season is here, the kids are out of school and they have energy to get out! So, what are you going to do with them? Luckily, I have a few ideas for you!

The 5 and under crowd



I.D.E.A. Museum-Located in Mesa, the I.D.E.A. Museum features a large play area for the five and under crowd. The Museum is open to those under 8 (the other side has a lot of craft areas), but this big play area is for the five and under crowd only. A little bit of a drive from Surprise, but there are huge blocks to play with, a big “Lite Brite” board, gears, dramatic play areas and dress up.




IMG_3700 Jubeelieve-located in Avondale and a quick hop from I-10, Jubeelieve has lots of gross motor activities available to tire out the most energetic of toddlers. The play area has ample baby toys too, along with seating areas for adults.





Playtime Oasis– Located in Scottsdale, Playtime Oasis mixes a toy shop with a fun place to play. Popular with grandparents and moms and dads alike, dramatic play areas and gross motor activities are abundant throughout the large area.




The (around) 8 and Under Crowd 


Makutu’s Island-Located in Chandler, Makutu’s Island is perfect for your independent age kid. There are lots of things to climb, swing on and explore. There is a baby area, but Makutu’s Island is best for those who are able to climb independently and explore. There is a cafe on site.




The Play Factory– Located in Desert Ridge Marketplace, North Phoenix, The Play Factory features a rock climbing wall, two bounce houses, a toddler zone and a one of a kind climbing/sliding feature. There is also a cafe on site and video games. Free wifi and Starbucks coffee add to the allure for the adult crowd.



IMG_2726 Playgrounds Fun Zone– Located in Glendale, Playgrounds Fun Zone has a full coffee shop and cafe, which makes the coffee drinkers drool. There are lots of gross motor activities and spots for different ages in this play area. There is also lots of seating for parents!




Pump it Up Peoria-Located in Peoria, Pump it up has lots of different types of bounce areas for kids of all sizes, with some challenging with slides and climbers, and some just plain old bounce areas. There is also an area that is not closed off for children (with foam puzzles) who are too young to jump or may need to take a breather!


All Ages 


Children’s Museum of PhoenixIMG_3565– With three huge floors of things to do, you won’t easily get bored here. There are gross motor and fine motor activities throughout the museum to explore. Classes are also available for an extra fee. There is a cafe on site.



Sky Zone Peoria  IMG_5100Is great fun for the kid who needs to get out the wiggles, or the parent who was to reclaim their youth. There are foam pits to jump in, a dodgeball court to compete in, and lots of other areas to just bounce up and down. A toddler court is available for the little ones as well.
