Because it’s going to happen at some point, you should probably plan for a rainy day this summer. Once you have built forts, baked cookies, done some crafts and are ready to get the kids out of the house, check out this list of indoor activities in Brampton for the rainy days, or the days when it’s just too hot.

Aerosports Trampoline Park

It’s always better to have the kids and their friends bouncing off someone else’s walls. Plan a play-date with some friends and let the kids go bananas bouncing on the many, many trampolines. Bonus: if you don’t choose to jump, the couches are very comfy.


For only $39.99, you can get the kiddos unlimited mini putt and laser tag. Sit back in the air conditioning and let the kids go have some fun.

Brampton Library

Be honest, you had planned to have the kids read a book every week all summer. And maybe it hasn’t happened yet. Or maybe that’s just me. Take the kids on an outing to the library and let them pick out a few books to take home. Library cards are free! Check out the summer reading club for an even bigger challenge.


Check out the “Staycations” Tuesday and Thursday mornings from August 8-29 at PAMA. Close to home in downtown Brampton, activities are included with admission. Bonus: admission is free until August 31 in celebration of Peel and Canada 150!

PC Cooking School

For something a little different to do with the kids, head to President’s Choice Superstore on Steeles and do a cooking class. It’s great value and gives the kids a chance to learn something new.

Splatter Quest

Get a few of the kids’ friends together and plan a visit to Splatter Quest. Kids will have fun splattering paint on a canvas and leaving with a great piece of artwork. Contact Crystal at Splatter Quest to book a session.


Michaels offers a large variety of engaging and interesting craft workshops at Camp Creativity. With everything from emoji cookies to princess crafts, you are sure to find something of interest. Prices range from $5-$15/child.
