Wednesday Tips #21

Looking for a venue for an outing with young grandchildren?

A trip to the zoo is always popular with young children and I have found that a membership of my local zoo is a great investment.

If you are lucky enough to live within reasonable commuting distance of a zoo which offers membership benefits I would encourage you to join. Generally, a membership offers unlimited entry and some zoos actually have more than one site. Entry for children under the age of four years is often free which makes it the perfect venue for an economical outing.zoo

I often take my grandchildren  for a visit to one of our state zoos and each time we focus on only two or three exhibits. This way we have time to talk about the animals and watch them intently. Sometimes we are even lucky enough to encounter a zookeeper who will tell us a story about the animals in an exhibit. Many zoos also have volunteer guides who are a great source of information and stories about the animals in a zoo’s collection.

With a snack and a water bottle in my bag we are set for a morning or afternoon visit and home again before any of us is too tired.
