No doubt about it, being a kid is heaps of work. After all the fort building, slime making and wall climbing, they’ll probably need to take a much-needed chill break. Good news: Chicago has several spas that not only welcome kids but have treatments designed just for them. Whether hosting a kid’s birthday party or introducing your little one to manicures, go ahead and get in on the action and make an appointment for yourself. You deserve it.
