Since I don't have young kids at the moment I googled to see some fun not to expensive things to do with younger kids in Salt Lake Utah and found this site.
Granite School District Unplugged Program- The Play Unplugged program has kids focus on being outside and active instead of playing on ipads, gameboys, computers, and gaming systems through out the summer. At www.graniteunplugged.com you can participate to have your kids earn badges over the summer. And we at Wall Family Dentistry are sponsoring the Flosser Badge :)
The Hogle Zoo- New and improved and definitely remodeled, The Holge Zoo has been redesigned to forwards the younger crowd for more viewing and exploration. Remember to call ahead so when visiting you can feed the giraffes (always a big hit with the littles).
The Gateway Snowflake Fountain- Very fun for the younger kids to run around but definitely bring your own shade because benches with umbrellas are limited.
The Clark Planetarium- extremely fun for all ages but call ahead and decided what movie you can see after the kiddos are done playing with all the fun discovery stations.
The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium- Lots of fun for ocean discovery plan on not rushing through because it's not super big and it will be more fun if you have questions about certain animals. Call ahead and find out the shark feeding times before you go so you can get a good seat. They do have food you can buy there for lunch but it might be fun to pack a fish themed lunch for the kids?
Movies in the park/ at the Capitol- This is fun for everyone watching a movie outdoors in the warm weather. There are many movies in the park all around the valley you just need to find the ones closest to your family. At the Capitol they will not be showing movies for Summer 2015 but there are tons of other places one example is
Friday Night Flicks Salt Lake City will show a free movie at a new park for seven straight Fridays starting in June. The movies are all family-friendly, but fun for all ages. They are shown on a large inflatable screen and popcorn is free while it lasts.Bring your blankets and chairs and enjoy a neighborhood party under the stars. Community booths will open at 8 p.m. and the movies will begin around 9 p.m. Fridays, June 6-July 25, 2014 (excluding July 4), 9 p.m. See website for each week's location 801-535-6110
For what movies your local community parks participate in you can always google your city, or call your local recreation center for more details.
I hope that these ideas will help you start your summer planning and don't forget to come visit us for the FLOSSER Badges :)
