If you are looking for something fun to do with the Kids and you leave near the Bronx Zoo, their Animal Tales Extravaganza starts this weekend, April 21 and runs through June 30. Not only is the Zoo a fun place all in itself to take kids to because what kid doesn’t like to see animals? I know my kids love when we go to the zoo or anything that has to do with animals.
What is Animal Tales Extravaganza?
Each weekend of Animal Tales Extravaganza includes an array of activities for families and children. The zoo’s Dancing Crane Pavilion will be transformed into an intimate story time corner, presented byPlum Organics. Zoo-goers can take a break and read from a wide variety of animal-themed books from Simon & Schuster, Candlewick Press, and Hyperion. Children can then stage their own animal tale with a puppet they create at the Bright Horizons Early Education & Preschools crafts area. It is included with your Zoo admission!
Each weekend there is something different for the kids to see on the main stage, I will be taking my kids when Lazy Town is there, since the show has been a big hit in our house for a long time now 🙂 Some of the Events are:
- April 21 and April 22 – Storybook Fun with Curious George
- April 28 and 29 – Marvel’s Avengers: Heroes Saving the Earth featuring Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and HULK
