With the weekend upon us I wanted to share some of our favorite kid friendly spots around Kansas City. These are places Sutton & Greyson love to go (age 5 & age 2) that we frequent on weekends or on days when the kids don’t have school. Some of these are seasonal to Fall, but some are favorites year round.
I know there are so many great places around KC so moms, please leave your kids favorites in the comments if they aren’t listed here!
Wonderscope // A neat children’s museum with different themed rooms to play. (A new one coming to Red Bridge Shopping Center in 2020, which will be closer for us!)
Kaleidoscope // Hands on creative activities provided by Hallmark, free admissions!
Museum at Prairie Fire // We have a family pass and love it. It never has huge crowds, so there was always plenty of space for the kids to play and interact in the different areas.
Louisburg Cider Mill // A must in the Fall for cider & donuts!
Johnson Farms // We get a family pass on our first trip of the season, and it definitely pays off by our 2nd visit. We get our pumpkins & mums here and the kids love riding the tractor to the fields, seeing the animals & playing in all the play areas. They always find a favorite pumpkin too!
The Great Pumpkin Fest at World’s of Fun (Saturdays & Sundays Sept 14-Oct 27) // We haven’t done this, but it looks really fun and I think my kids would love it.
Science City at Union Station // On a nice day the outdoor playground is really unique and a great space to spend time!
Meadowbrook Park // 80 acres in Prairie Village with an awesome new playground, green space to play & trails to walk.
Deanna Rose Farmstead // September 28-October 31 Pumpkin Hallow where you can take a hay ride to a Fall activity area with pumpkins.
Kansas City Zoo // We are lucky to have such a great zoo in our city! We usually just take on one area of the zoo when we go to not be overwhelmed trying to get every where; the kids can take in the areas they love and just enjoy being outside.
