Fall break is right around the corner and we cannot wait to our friends in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and then spend a few days in Omaha, Nebraska. We are heading on the road trip next week and you know what that means….family FUN time in the car. On top of packing stellar snacks, drinks and pillows; I always print out games for the road and coloring sheets that match our adventure! I love this one and how much it matches on of my board books.
You can grab the Travel Bingo HERE for FREE. Be sure to print a few. They work great on a clipboard. I always add plain paper in the back too for my doodling kiddos.
One of the places we can’t wait to visit is Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium. So many of my blogger friends have been in Omaha this past year to visit one of the company’s we all love to work with and while there posted pictures from the zoo. I decided, after about the 25th one, that I simply must go there. You can check out their website by clocking on the photo below.
It is not secret that we LOVE zoos in this family (especially me)! We volunteered at the Denver Zoo a few weekends ago for Scout Night to support the Colorado Girl Scouts and the new exhibit, Washed Ashore. It was pretty fabulous. We always recommend that anyone visiting Denver go to our zoo. It is pretty awesome that the folks who have visited Omaha feel strongly about how awesome the Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium is for animal enthusiasts like us. If you have anyone who loves to color, here are a few fun ones for you to download. I doodled these animals originally for an art licensing partner who put them on lollipops. How cool is that?
If you are especially fond of sharks, you might want to hop back to this post from Shark Week time. This is one of the free printable that you can grab there (or now here too)!
Fun fact about me…we had our rehearsal dinner at the Aquarium in Pine Knoll Shores, NC. Here is a photo of me, Rypster and the jaw of a shark! It was a blast. The kids (and the adults) all had such a grand time!
So, stay tuned. I will be excited to share about our trip once we return.
Cheers to Adventures,
