Inexpensive Summer Field Trip For Kids!
Haha, this was so much fun today! I'm not sure if all Scheels are like this around the country, but in Reno, NV. If you're looking for something fun and inexpensive to do with your kids, as well as educational, why not check out your local Scheels store.
This place was amazing! It is a large two story, shopping sports center with a life size ferris wheel in the middle of the ground floor for the kids to ride for a dollar! After the ferris wheel we visited the HUGE aquarium. You can actually walk under it while the fish swim above and around you!
Afterwards, we headed upstairs to where we met a few of our USA Presidents past. Thomas Jefferson and Abe Lincoln are live robotic animation and make history come to life with their realistic movements and speech. There are many other presidents that share politically relative speeches that they were known for during their time in the White House, including President Reagans "Berlin Wall" speech.
There is also a bunch of wild, stuffed animals throughout the store posed in their natural habitat.
We had such a great time wondering around! All this cost us only $1.00 (for the ferris wheel) and we have a lifetime of summer memories from this special trip.
What are you doing this summer on a budget?
