Things to do when it’s crazy hot

Israel is in the desert, it’s hot. Sure they have a winter when it gets cool, even chilly in the northern part of the country but not in August. No, in August Israel is hot, north to south and east to west. It’s just plain hot. I think it was about 100 degrees everyday, temperature is measured in Celsius over there and I am not too good at math, so it may have been hotter. It felt like it.

When the weather man says it’s going to be 37 to figure out the temp in degrees you double it, then subtract a tenth of that total and add thirty-two. So it would be 99 degrees or HOT.

We wanted to take the girls out and do stuff but it was so hot it just wasn’t fair to do that to them, being outside during mid day.

One day we went to a mall. While we were there we visited the baby store, Shilav, that had a little play pen with a couple of kids in it. I put in my kids and the had a ball. They explored every inch of the four by four area and loved every minute of it.

The next day my mother in law and sister in law took them to a different mall with a similar play area but much larger.

And a few days later we went back again. Later in the week we went to another place with a whole room of play equipyement just for babies, the girls played hard and had so much fun.

My question is do these type of indoor playgrounds exit in the US? Where? I know there are classes, but what about a big open space with sensory objects for babies to roam around and learn on thier own?

    They have them here in some of the malls and there are play cafes which are packed when its cold and rainy (most of the year). Such wonderful areas for businesses to have! Looks like you had a great family trip! :)
