The weather in New Orleans is unpredictable. One day it’s hot, the next it’s rainy, the next it’s cold and that’s just October to April. The rest of the year it’s HOT as heck and no one wants to be outside without some type of water to cool off in. Thankfully New Orleans is full of indoor attractions where kids can have fun, burn off some energy and you can stay warm, dry, or cool depending on the day.  So here’s the Pint-Sized NOLA’s 2018 Guide to Indoor Attractions in New Orleans.

Lil’ Yats Art & Play

Lil’ Yats is a Walk-in Art & Play studio for kids of all ages! We provide walk-in hours, weekly classes, open studio, and parties. Our Art Studio will always have a collection of engaging process-art and craft based projects for Lil’ (and Big) Yats to partake in. Visitors have the option to add wood and fabric paint projects from our “Art a la Carte” section at any time. Our Play Studio is set-up to allow for open-ended pretend and interactive play. With a stage, puppet theater, busy wall, and kitchen, a child is able to create freely. No matter how they play, it’s all art to us!
