Kidsburg is the perfect place for kids of all ages! Kidsburg offers 5,000 square feet of hands-on experiences such as exhibits, building areas, and art. This discovery center allows for both kids and parents to get out of the house during cold, winter months. This is the perfect place for you and your kids to learn and have fun in a safe and welcoming environment! Kidsburg inspires a lifelong love of learning for every child.
So how did this get started?
The city of Rexburg received a high five grant which, according to Jeff Crowther, the Recreation Director, is “to help improve a healthy lifestyle and active play for kids”. Kidsburg’s main goal is to provide a fun, family environment where kids and parents can be active together. Because of this, Kidsburg strongly encourages parents to play with their kids. The city of Rexburg renovated part of the zone that is dedicated to Kidsburg, although, along with admission, parents and children have access to the whole building. This discovery center does not have an age limit. There are activities for the whole family including basketball courts, an indoor turf for soccer, and nerf guns so that your early tweens and teens can enjoy themselves as well.
