What To Do In Cleveland With Kids

Monday, April 22, 2013 0 Comments A+ a-

As a mother of two young kids living in the West suburbs of Cleveland, I'm always looking for fun things to do with my kids. Here's a list I came up with of the things we like to do around our neck of the woods.
  • Lorain County Metroparks Programs - There is always something going on at the Lorain County Metroparks. We're been to quite a few of these, and always have a good time. They're fun, but always educational too.

  • The Cleveland Zoo - We had a zoo pass when Phoenix was younger, but haven't taken Ariana there yet. I'm debating about getting a pass this spring, since Ariana & Phoenix will both be at a good age to enjoy it. Plus, I think the zoo would provide excellent educational opportunities, since I'm still planning on homeschooling Phoenix for his second year of preschool.

  • The Lake Erie Nature & Science Center and Planetarium - We just went here for the first time the other day, and had a great time. They have an indoor animal area, complete with bees, fish, turtles, snakes and more, but they also have planetarium programs for everyone... starting at a 0-3-years old.

  • Westlake Porter Library - This is not your typical library! Their kids area is nice, and they always have fun programs going on too!

  • Fire Station Tours - The North Ridgeville Fire Station has tours the first Saturday of the month. My firefighter-in-training Phoenix always has a blast whenever we go.

  • Home Depot FREE Kids Workshops - The first Saturday of the month, Home Depot offers a free kids workshop. This month, we made bird-feeders that Phoenix was able to help build & paint on his own!

  • Pat Catans FREE Kids Craft - A few Saturdays each month, our local craft store offers fun kids crafts. They're always fun!

  • And more... such as libraries, parks, and indoor mall play areas.

Where are your favorite places to go with your kids? Leave a comment. :)
