If you’ve read my blogs, you already know I’m a big fan of the Oklahoma City Zoo.
Last night, my son and I attended the ConZOOvation event at the zoo, and it was a blast. For $6 (the price for each adult, kids went free), we had an evening of dinner , crafts and a puppet show. They had the characters from OETA’s show Between the Lions and Chick-fil-A supplied dinner to the kids and adults. Kids also got to make their own lion puppets and had a goody bag complete with animal book to take home with them.
Also, once a month, we attend a class with other 2-year-olds and they do all kinds of fun things. There’s story time, craft-making, and the zoo staff bring in a “friend” … usually something alive that the kids can touch and come face to face with. It runs about an hour on a Saturday morning, once a month and they have a different theme each class. For Zoo Friends, each class is $10.00 and for others it is $12.00 per child. Well worth it!
Visit the zoo’s Web site, okczoo.com, click on education, then events, then toddler programs to see the programs offered for kids 5 and younger and special events. There’s some fun things coming up like Family Fun Night for Zoo Friends members and Cupcakes with Santa in a few months. For a monthly schedule of events, look under “Zoo News” on the homepage or go to http://www.okczoo.com/wimgo/.
Have fun planning your next trip to one of Oklahoma City’s best attractions!
