Orange County Zoo Toddler Classes and giveaway!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you are all ready to enjoy this first weekend in October.

I’m a big supporter of the local parks and zoos. I am a big fan of the Orange County Zoo, which is located inside Irvine Regional Park. It is a fun smaller zoo and it is a big hit with my kiddos. The Orange County Zoo offers classes for the kiddos year round. If you have toddlers, you definitely do not want to miss out on this class. The zoo has space available in their October 14th class, Bats, Cats & Spiders from 10am to 11am for 3 to y year olds. The class is $5 and it covers one adult. You have to register to be able to participate. To register call 714-973-6846.

I have a quick little giveaway that will run until Sunday. Enter to win a four pack of tickets to the OC Zoo and a four pack of tickets to the Irvine Park Railroad for a fun afternoon or morning. Just leave a comment letting me know why you love or would love to visit the OC Zoo and you will be entered. Good luck!

    I have never been to the Orange County Zoo or the Irvine Railroad, but my 2 year-old daughter, husband and I would love to go together so that I can show my daughter all the animals while teaching her their Hawaiian names :). Thanks for your wonderful blog! We always check it out when we want to go anywhere in Southern California!

    My little girl loves animals and unfortunately we have not been able to make it to the OC Zoo. She loves train rides and horses so I am sure this would be a wonderful surprise for her!

  4. The Hunnicutts says:

    Oh, we love both! The zoo isn't overwhelming for my little ones, and I love that it doesn't require a whole day to see it all.

    My two-year-old loves the OC Zoo. It's small enough that he doesn't get overwhelmed, but big enough that he doesn't get bored. He loves petting the goats and making animals noises as we walk around. We'd love to win this.
