My last posts in partnership with The Ravine Waterpark went over all the kids’ stuff … so here’s all the…
Fall marks the time of year when I start planning Clara and Wyatt’s dual December birthday party. Yep, totally combining it ’till they won’t let me anymore. #noshame.
In December, they will be 3 and 5. So I researched aaall the kids party places.
And as bonus of my annual crazy-mama birthday party scouting, I’ve decided to make my venue list public. And styled. With links. And prices! You’re welcome.
From singing and dancing at the library to strolling alongside the waterfront – we’ve got ya covered. Here are some of our absolute favorite quick-hits for things to do in SLO County with very small children.
All in all, we have a lot of fun at The Slice Pizza & Games in Paso Robles. From a game featuring a giant Minion to a classic claw booth that dishes out a prize every time, I’m genuinely impressed by the business’ family-friendly atmosphere that’s welcoming but also modern.
In Family Yoga, Vanessa of Yaya Yoga ca teaches toddlers and preschoolers the perfect mix of movement, play and mindfulness from a yoga mat. Parents also participate in this class that may feature fun activities like crawling like forest animals, stomping like dinosaurs and playing toe-ga with fluffy little pom pom balls!
Here’s our review of taking kids to The Ravine Waterpark in Paso Robles.
Exploring the Morro Bay Embarcadero with kids is one of our hands-down favorite adventures. So much so, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to write about it. This day includes rides, treats, pretty views, TAFFY and a chance to feed some awesome seals.
This adventure takes you to the lovely sea fishing town of Morro Bay, California. It’s famous for the iconic Morro Rock, one of SLO County’s “Nine Sisters” of volcanic peaks stretching along Highway 1. Morro Rock is the only one of the peaks sitting in the water. Elsewhere, the city is made up of a small but vibrant downtown, homes, beach life and a bustling harbor. Along that harbor, you’ll find The Embarcadero.
Both of our kids have December birthdays, three days apart, less than two weeks from Christmas. Needless to say, our holiday season is a liiittle much. But a ton of that stress was alleviated when the kids turned 2 and 4 because we chose a destination birthday at Central Coast Aquarium In Avila Beach. And this is one venue that your guests will LOVE.
Next up in our series of pumpkin patches is the truly wonderful Jack Creek Farms in Templeton, California. It’s open year-round and they’ve put a lot of time and effort into making their farm kid-friendly, including fenced-in play areas and a thoughtful layout that includes a large picnic table spot.
I feel like Avila Valley Barn is the go-to staple for pumpkin patchin’ it in SLO County. It also has one heck of a pie stand. Overall, it has hay rides, farm animals to feed, two mazes, roasted corn, photo ops and ice cream all on a family-friendly farm.
