Your essential guide to keeping the kids entertained over Christmas break

It’s a classic annual question around the holidays: “What is there to do with the kids?” We’ve got the answers!

Hall comes to the rescue

Walk through the doors of the Hall of Justice (Really! The entrance is styled after the Super Friends’ HQ) and spend an afternoon fighting evil with Batman, Captain America, Wonder Woman and other superheroes. Movie props, action figures, comic books and Saturday morning cartoons — BAM!

It’s all downhill from here

You can’t beat an afternoon sledding. If there’s enough snow on the ground, sledding hills are plentiful and keep you fairly close to places where you can warm up and enjoy a snack. Check out McNaughton Park in Elkhart, Abshire Park in Goshen, Ox Bow County Park between Elkhart and Goshen, Bonneyville Mill County Park between Bristol and Middlebury, or Callander Sportsplex in Nappanee.

Let the good times roll

Kids can blow off steam — and no one will get cold — with a trip to Eby’s Pines Family Fun Center. Choose from the roller skating rink, Laser Tag arena and video game arcade — or do all three and recharge at the snack bar! They’ll be open additional  hours over the Christmas break.

A skate in the park

Tighten the laces on your skates and take a few spins on the NIBCO Ice & Water Park. The one-of-a-kind ice skating path is the perfect winter experience for the family right on the banks of the Elkhart River. When you’re done, you’re right downtown and close to coffee shops and restaurants.
