With all the snow and colder temperatures, winter can be rather boring for your kids. Plus all that extra screen time isn't always a good thing either.

So what's a parent in the Forest City suppose to do?

You could take the kids to one of the many indoor play places here in the Rockford area. Thankfully they're not all that expensive either.

The folks at Statelinekids.com were kind enough to compile a list of all the places you can take your kids to play inside.
