Nutrition and good exercise habits are important for everyone and on September 10, 2011, your kids can learn about both while getting some exercise of their own. St. Louis Children’s Hospital is sponsoring Just Like You at the Zoo, a health and fitness themed scavenger hunt that takes place within the St. Louis Zoo.
From 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., this fun activity for kids – as well as parents – will have your family roaring and howling with delight. Upon arrival at the zoo, kids will receive a game card that will help them check off the nutrition and exercise information they are hunting for throughout the zoo. Children will learn that animals are a lot like us in that they need certain foods or exercise opportunities to stay healthy.
This fun-filled kids event will have your children racing ahead to the next exhibit, trying to uncover all the information needed to complete the game. The best part is, as kids are busy enjoying this activity, they are learning and getting exercise at the same time!
The St. Louis Zoo is one of the best local attractions for people who are looking for free family-friendly entertainment. Now, parents and children can have even more fun visiting the animals as they play the Just Like You at the Zoo scavenger hunt on September 10th.
