Kids should spend all of their time outdoors, learning to explore and have fun. Kuwait 's environment also prohibits outdoor time, however, prompting parents to look for fun games and play spots to keep the kiddos occupied and exploring. Here is a list of some of NewHilite 's favorite indoor destinations for kids in Kuwait during those days when going outside is not a choice.

Baroue at the Avenues, Marina Mall, Liwan Mall and Discovery Mall – All three have indoor play places and the location in Marina Mall just opened a new branch of Trampo/Clip n Climb.
