Cabin Fever Cures For Kids

Problem: The kids have come down with a bad case of cabin fever and you’re tapped for ideas. Solution: A fun and educational outing in Wisconsin!

If the kids are getting antsy and you’re running out of ways to keep them entertained at home, try some of these Wisconsin family outings:

Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary – Green Bay

Great for Ages: 8 and up

Bundle up, get outside and explore! The sanctuary has 6.5 miles of trails to hike or cross country ski, making it a great opportunity to exercise while you enjoy the natural beauty of Wisconsin’s winter. Stop at designated wildlife viewing areas or check out the schedule of programs, events and activities like the Great Backyard Bird Count and Yoga For Kids.

The Building for Kids – Appleton

Great for Ages: 2 - 10

Kids that love to get hands-on will feel right at home at The Building for Kids. Two floors and 30,000 square feet of interactive exhibits will keep them laughing and learning all day. Watch their imagination wander as they operate a realistic crane in “Construction Junction”, explore an oversized human heart at “The Amazing Heart” and climb around the 5 forts of “The Story Tree”.

Kaytee Avian Learning Center – Chilton

Great for Ages: 5 and up

Fun for all animal lovers, see more than 50 live birds and small animals. Check out the Rainforest Room, where you can observe exotic birds up close in a simulated natural environment. Have a little one that likes crafts? Kids can mimic their favorite feathered friend at the mask-making station or make a toy for the exotic birds to enjoy. The Center is open the first Friday and Saturday of each month (except in July) and admission is free!
