Instead of doing the “usual” this weekend–whatever that means for you and yours–why not try some of these unique activities in your local Jeffco neighborhood? No matter what you choose, they’ll both get you and the kids out of the house and into the sunshine.
If you have children between the ages of 4 and 10, check out the Kite Buiding Class at Majestic View Nature Center in Arvada this Saturday. For only $3.50 per student, each child receives all materials to build a sled kite. During the class, they will assemble and decorate the kite. There are multiple class times–10:00 to 11:00, 11:30 to12:30 and 1:00 to 2:00. You must pre-register by calling 720-898-7405. All participants are invited to the Free Arvada Kite Festival at Robby Ferrufino Park on April 14.
On Sunday, April 1, Zuma’s Rescue Ranch in Littleton is hosting Horses n’ Hounds Spring Fling, a fundraising event to raise funds and awareness for children and adolescents in local residential facilities. At the event, there will be pony rides, a petting zoo, Easter egg hunt, dog wash, dog agility demonstration, horse training demonstrations, horse grooming and a pot bellied pig named Daisy. Dogs are welcome as long as they’re on a leash. Cost is $25 per famimly or $15 per person. The event runs from 12PM to 4PM.
Whatever you decide to do, enjoy the time with your family.
