Winter Fun for Seattle Kids

It’s cold, rainy and generally no fun outside for kids during the winter months. What else can you do to keep kids entertained, engaged and away from the TV? There are plenty of well-established options in the city like Seattle Children’s Museum, Seattle Children’s Theater, Woodland Park Zoo and the Pacific Science Center, but we looked around and found a few other options that are a little more adventurous and less known.

Seattle Kids Tour

A professionally guided tour for visitors and locals alike, your Tour Guide will take you places that are naturally interesting to kids, and show them the city in a way that is specifically designed so kids can learn and relate to the city architecture, Pike Place Market, the Seattle Art Museum – and the infamous gum wall.

Wings Over Washington

Mixing theater, laser projection, sound and movement – Wings Over Washington is a full sensory experience. Strapped into a seat that moves with the film and the music, you will see everything from the Seattle Great Wheel to the Walla Walla Balloon Stampede, and a lot of amazing Washington scenery in between.

Ice Cream Cruise

At first glance you might think that this trip would be too cold in the winter and best saved for the heat of summer. Fortunately the interior is heated and the crowds will not be nearly as deep during the off-season. Besides serving ice cream there is fun music, stories and tours through the Lake Union houseboat neighborhood, Gas Works Park, and even some spy ships! Fun for all ages and you can even bring well behaved dogs!
