As any kid knows, Friday and Saturday nights are when fun rules supreme. As a parent, you’re looking for fun things for your kids to do at night on the weekend, ideally something that will get your kids to look up from their phones, tablets, and televisions. And, of course, you’d like to enjoy yourself, too. Here are a few ideas for fun and inexpensive family activities this weekend:
Bounce into a good time at Zero Gravity
A Mounds View favorite, Zero Gravity is a place that your kids will be talking about for months. With wall-to-wall trampoline courts, an aerial challenge course, Laser Tag, and a giant foam pit, we offer tons of fun for kids and parents alike. Even better, Zero Gravity runs weekend specials that will save you money while maximizing the fun.
The Friday night special opens up jumping and more to all ages from 8 to 10 p.m., granting two hours of jump time and one game of Laser Tag or an attempt at the adventurous aerial challenge course, all for an incredible $15. Don’t worry if you miss it on Friday – the same great special runs Saturday night as well.
Indulge in Ice Cream Sundaes at the Big Dipper Creamery
Nobody can turn down a good ice cream sundae, so you can count on this one being a win for the entire family. With 52 flavors, the Big Dipper Creamery has been pleasing taste buds in Mounds View for more than 20 years. The kids will love classic flavors like bubblegum, and you can get something a bit more sophisticated, like rum cherry.
Stay Home for a Competitive Night of Board Games
For a quiet (or not-so-quiet) night in, pull out your collection of board games and have everyone gather round. Get competitive with checkers, or really get the giggles going with a round of Twister. For an extra element of fun, hand out fun awards like “Most Surprising Winner” or “Best Loser.”
Hunt for the Big Dipper at Silver View Park
You can’t beat a little reconnection with nature, and kids and teens alike will be impressed with an up-close experience with the night sky. Bring a list of the constellations and see who can spot the most. You can even ask around to see if anyone you know has a telescope, which would really take stargazing to the next level.
Have Some Fun in Twin Cities
Gathering the family for some fun Friday and Saturday night activities is a great way to get closer and make fun memories, and you don’t have to empty your wallet to have a good time. Kick your weekend plans up a notch and make plans for family fun at Zero Gravity!
