Time to enjoy some indoor activities! 

Not sure what might be best? Not to worry. We’ve put together a list of some fun indoor activities for both the kids and adults in Barrie. Enjoy! 

Kids Activities

Keep the kiddos entertained and use up some of their excess energy with fun activities to get their minds going and their bodies moving.
