When filling that holiday shopping bag, you might notice opportunities for your child to get new enrichment experiences at the mall.
At the Tallahassee Mall, in Florida, kids can take fencing lessons. At Grapevine Mills near Dallas, you can have a family outing at an aquarium. And although kid gyms have been a recent staple at malls, wall to wall trampolines (pay by the hour to jump) now attract kids who want to play trampoline dodgeball in Plano, Texas.
If this trend continues, kids will eagerly accompany you to the mall, especially if they can drive on a go-cart track while you shop next door.
