Summer Fun Ideas in the PNW
Sun is here, school is out, and it is officially time for summer! Here is a list of family-fun activities in Washington:
Hands-On Children’s Museum in Olympia, WA.
This museum offers sensory-friendly hour from 9-10 am, sensory-friendly kits, and sensory-inclusive playtimes (Mondays – Thursdays from 2:30 – 4:30 pm). Online reservations are required. https://www.hocm.org/sensory-friendly-events/
We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym
We Rock is a sensory gym for kids of all abilities located in Federal Way and Bellevue. They offer classes, as well as open play with the use of the full gym. Open play must be supervised by a caregiver and be pre-booked. Please refer to the websites for additional information on cost and hours.
This area is great for trails and parks with playgrounds. There is always a place to explore, find some shade and have a picnic. Check the links below for some links to the city pages. All the parks are listed there!
JUMP JUMP JUMP
Defy Extreme Air Sports is an awesome indoor trampoline park here in Olympia. They have great packages and are open 7 days a week. While they don't have a special time for smaller children, they state they are the quietest in the mornings right when they open. For tickets and hours, visit their website at defy.com
Cirque Climbing Gym is fun for the whole family! They have walls that are great for beginners to more advanced climbers. They also offer classes like Intro to Climbing and Intro to Technique. It has drop-in/daily rates as well as membership options. Find out more details here.
And don't forget about keeping cool! There are pools, splash pads, and lakes to play in. And the ocean is just over an hour away!
Summer is a great time to explore new places, learn new things, and also find time to relax and enjoy the great weather. The PNW really shines in the summer months.
