ideas and activities for children

INDIANAPOLIS — There’s no excuse for boredom, at least from Memorial Day to Labor Day, with this list of ideas and activities from Indy with Kids.

Founder Katy Mann stopped by to share some highlights from the List of 101 Days of Summer in Indyincluding:

  • Berry picking — Strawberries are ripe and ready to be picked now from local farms. Blueberries, blackberries and raspberries will be ready around July 4th.
  • Indiana Live Steamers — Ride a miniature train on a real track through Johnson County Park. The 20-minute ride goes over bridges and through the woods (but not to Grandma’s house, unfortunately). The cost is $4 per person.
  • Hunter’s Honey Farm – This Martinsville honey house offers a variety of family tours and activities, from beekeeper attire and hive tours to bottling your own honey to take home.
  • river tubing — Mann considers it a must for the summer. Pack a lunch and your camera, link your tubes together and float all day. There are tons of tubing spots in Indiana.

The full list includes places and activities you may know, as well as hidden gems. If you’re on a budget, there are plenty of free and inexpensive activities.
