| Earth Day: Local Stuff
With Earth Day coming up, and there being tons of activities, I really wanted to get a list together for all the activities here in the Roseville/Rocklin area.
Riley Library/Utility Exploration Center in Roseville 10am-3pm FREE
Hi, you had me at Petting Zoo, but there's also a puppet show, bands, and organic food happening.
Michaels The Knack in Roseville 10am-1pm FREE
I worked at Michaels for three years in college and I got to do kids club which was usually fun but did have a few of those kids that made a teen never want to have kids. We haven't done the Knack yet, but I assume it's the same sort of deal, supplies set out, parents help while employee may spout words of encouragement.
STAR Eco Station in Rocklin 11am-3pm $5/FREE for kids under 4 or 5 (I can't remember)
Should be dancing, tours, hands on activities.
Lakeshore Learning in Roseville 11am-3pm FREE
Plant a sunflower seed and they always do great crafts, Goose loves sparkles and they always seem to have plenty. Plus, they have a buy one get one half off deal going on.
UP Steam Locomotive No. 844 in Roseville FREE
Down at the Roseville Railyard you can see this train. Should be good for budding train enthusiasts.
RC Willey has free hot dogs and drinks from 12-2.
Ikea is doing free breakfast Friday, Saturday and Sunday until 10:30
Effie Yeaw Nature Center in Carmichael 11am FREE (unless paying to park has resumed)
Puppet Show! I know that it's a bit of a drive for the Rosevillians and Rocklinites, but Effie Yeaw is one of my favorite places to take the kids. It has great trails for walking and exploring nature, but their nature center is great complete with turtles, owls, lizards and a rattlesnake plus tons of hands on learning exhibits. And where else can you get a honey stick for 25 cents?
Whole Foods' Kids Camp as usual starts at 12.
Rocklin, Roseville and Carmichael have Creek Weeks beginning on the 17th (Carmichael) and 18th (figure it out) which would be amazing to help instill cleanliness in the kiddos.
Anything I missed?
