While we excitedly anticipate the long and warm summer days, as parents we can also be filled with some anxiety regarding the ever-daunting question, “How do we entertain our toddler ALL summer  long?” This can be especially challenging when living in the CSRA where area temperatures often exceed a tolerable outdoor index.

 Here are 10 indoor places to go with your toddler to keep them entertained:

The Kroc Center of Augusta

Enjoy a day of indoor swimming, relax in the splash pad and even get lunch for from the indoor café while you are there. Another excellent feature they offer is the Kroc Tots and Toddler Time where children can enjoy a story and then get involved in an age-appropriate craft relevant to the story.This gives them the stimulation and socialization they sometimes miss while off for the summer while it also gives parents the opportunity to chat. Music and other camps for toddlers are also available!
