Top 5 Activities for You and Your Baby in Indianapolis


Getting out of the house can be challenging when you have a baby, but it’s essential for both of you. The Indianapolis area is full of places where you and your baby can have a great time. Take a look at 5 of our top recommendations.

Babyscape at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis:

The world’s biggest children’s museum was also one of the first to create a special space for preschoolers back in 1981. Today, babies have their own territory called Babyscape within the Playscape gallery. Your baby can develop gross and fine motor skills as they delight in mirrored spaces and boxes full of objects and toys. They can also work their way up to all the attractions including water and sand stations, musical instruments, and the tree house. (Babyscape, Indianapolis)

The Urban Chalkboard Play Cafe:

Make this your family coffee shop. It’s a learning studio and play cafe where you can relax and connect with other parents while your baby plays. There’s no admission charge for infants under 9 months. Along with many developmentally appropriate free activities, there’s a Babies Play Music class designed for newborns to 18 months, and more classes and camps for older kids.

Enjoy music and movement classes for all ages starting with babies so you’ll be helping your child to develop a lifelong love of music. The lessons also encourage other important life skills while making it feel like play. (Kindermusik, Indianapolis, and Franklin)

Free fun for you and your baby is as close as your local library. In addition to borrowing materials, check out programs like Mother Goose on the Loose, Baby Lapsits, and Baby Storytimes. Plus, if you like Zumba, you’ll love Zumbini. (Indianapolis Public Library, multiple branch locations)
