Summer break is over the halfway point and odds are you parents out there are probably hearing the most dreaded phrase in parenting besides “I’m quitting college to play in my friend’s band”, which is…”I’m BORED”.
Here are my top 5 family activities in Santa Clarita this weekend:
Placerita Nature Center
1) If your kids are like mine, I spend most of my weekends trying to find ways to tire them out so they won’t go all Tasmanian Devil in my house. Good news for you if you have the same issue, this Saturday August 2nd there is a free Family Nature Walk at the Placerita Canyon Natural Area starting at 11 am. It’s short and easy for the whole family.
Following at 1, they will present a an animal show featuring the area’s native wild animals. These are all open to the public and are great for getting your kids a little runaround time and then- sneak attack-get them to learn something! Visit placerita.org to get the scoop on this weekly event. I can’t promise you that your kids will be tired after that, but it’s a good start!
