Legends & Fairytales, Roots & Shoots

Legends & Fairytales, Roots & Shoots

  We wish our summer camps had titles like this—”Myths, Legends & Fairies of the Forest.” It’s just one of the one-week summer camp sessions at the Arboretum for kids age 5 to 11. We apologize for being a bit late to the promotion party, but here is a listing of the remaining one-week, Monday through Friday, […]

Kids for Animals

Kids for Animals

The unconditional love one experiences from dogs instills joy, fun, silliness, and healing. Even the conditional love from cats can be a salve for the soul. Having pets in our life growing up (two dogs, three cats) taught us patience, consideration, compassion (thunder storm freak outs!), and what it means to be responsible for something that’s […]

Wild West Day

Wild West Day

Do a little panning for gold, rope a steer, and ride in a U. S. Mail stage coach at the Arboretum‘s “Wild West Day” on May 6. Kids can learn how to write telegrams, play horse shoes, and watch a blacksmith. Christy Lewis of Trick Roper provides a roping demonstration, the Shadow Mountain Band plays […]

Scaling the Big Trucks

Scaling the Big Trucks

Do you remember being a 3½ foot 5-year-old? Besides playing with your friends, your toys, or the family dog, your days were about looking up. Looking up at your parents, your teacher, the tree branch you wanted to reach, even the dang sink! Dreaming of the time you’d no longer need the step-stool to wash […]

Hunting in the Horseshoe Garden

Hunting in the Horseshoe Garden

Still undecided about where to Easter egg hunt? Consider having your little ones hunt for eggs in the Horseshoe Garden at the Langham Huntington. Every child receives his or her own basket and the Easter Bunny will be visiting to help kids search the grounds for treats and goodies. Children can enjoy, also, the Huntington’s “express train” […]

Love Bug & Me Music

Love Bug & Me Music

We were checking in to see what was happening at the Southern California Children’s Museum on Los Robles just north of Colorado Boulevard. This location is now its permanent home after some time on South Lake Avenue—and though the folks are still in the process of completing all of the interactive exhibits, the doors are open. […]
