Fun Indoor Ideas OTP

It’s that time of year where the hustle of the holiday season is over, but the weather outside may still be frightful. If you start to hear, “I’m bored,” Scoop OTP has suggestions of some great Forced Family Fun indoor activities.

party-palace3-f1428ca9a0A new party place opened in Woodstock last year called The Pampered Peacock. They specialize in “girly” activities including mani/pedis (my dry hands need their paraffin wax treatment!), makeup, hair, dress up, and more.

They host parties for children, tweens, teens, and adults at their beautiful free-standing store located at 7031 Main St. You can call them at 678-540-7601. This could be the perfect ladies night out or a younger girl’s day in to fight off the dreary winter weather. The ideas are endless, and you can even bring your own wine and food to their event location. Your little ones will love their Frozen party on 1/17-1/19 with character performances.

I can see my husband and teenagers all over this “realistic” laser tag venue. You must be 8 or older to participate. It is next door to Scoop Approved Whirly Ball, which is a fun mix of lacrosse, basketball, and bumper cars! Read more here. You must be 11 and older for Whirly Ball.

If you find your little ones (or yourself) with extra time on your hands this time of year, why not try music or art lessons? Play Music and Art! in the Hickory Flat area offers quality art classes and music lessons. They specialize in music lessons for beginners. Classes are offered 6 days a week, and there are no contracts; they want you to be there because you want to learn. They also offer a variety of art, sculpting, and painting classes for all ages, so you can tap into your creative side.

If you have a birthday party to plan, they host parties too. Stop by 6768 Hickory Flat Highway, Suite 112 or call them at 770-345-7529 and tell them Scoop OTP sent you. For more information, click here.

If you have kids who are bouncing off the walls, you can reserve an hour or two to play some indoor basketball or volleyball at The Blitz in Canton. They also offer speed and agility classes if your kids just need to move. Visit their website or contact owner Rashid Gayle at 404-925-7521 or

Follow their Facebook page for more information. If we get another ice storm here this year, you may be able to create a makeshift court on your own street!

Another fun Scoop Approved place to check out is Escalade Rock Climbing Center in Kennesaw. It boasts one of the largest boulder walls in Atlanta. They even offer classes in aerial silks if you are feeling daring. It is located at 3694 Kennesaw South Industrial Dr, Kennesaw, GA 30144. You can call them at 770-794-1575 and visit their website. This is a good Forced Family Fun adventure for the whole family!

We have more Scoop Approved art places such as The Kipling HousePaper.Scissors.Cake, and All Fired Up depending on where you live and what you like to create! Check out more Forced Family Fun ideas here.
