Children's Museum - Indianapolis! What was the best gift Santa ever brought you? Was it a dollhouse? An Erector Set? An awesome bicycle? As a child, the holiday season is the highlight of the year and even as an adult you still remember your favorite presents, baking cookies with grandma, sledding with siblings and drinking hot chocolate in front of a fire. This December, what better way to ensure that your kids have cherished holiday memories than by visiting Jolly Days Winter Wonderland at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis?

Jolly Days gives children and families the opportunity to enjoy the winter transformation of The Children’s Museum. With snowflakes, lights, oversized toys and winter indoor/outdoor activities, every part of this holiday exhibit is sure to bring joy to your whole family.

Inside the 6,000-square-foot exhibit, visit the North Pole, Santa’s reindeer stable and an “outdoor” space for ice skating in socks! During scheduled intervals Santa would love to hear wish lists from children of all ages, and his reindeer always need fed, groomed and harnessed before the big night.

For children ages 2 and younger, the Jingles’ Baby Play area is the perfect place to explore elements similar to those of Playscape such as peek-a-boo doors and padded floors and walls. A staff-facilitated indoor snowball fight with fluffy white pom poms and Ice Fishing at the Ice Castle are perfect for older kids, and families can enjoy participating in the traditions of house decorating with lights and garland and sharing cooking secrets during a customary holiday meal.

Make this holiday season one your kids will remember for years to come and include The Children’s Museum in your holiday traditions. The exhibit is open Nov. 25 until Jan. 8, 2012. Happy Holidays!
