Getting Ready for School in OKC

· No Comments

August is here, and that means it’s time for all those students to get ready to go back to school.  But classes won’t start for a few weeks (well, most of them—I did see where one school starts August 2nd!), and that means there’s still time to find a few things to do with the kids.  Here are some activities to enjoy in Oklahoma City before hitting the books again.

Go to a sprayground.  These small water parks have replaced some playgrounds in OKC.  They offer pools, sprayers, and other fun toys that can help keep kids cool during the hot August month.

Head over to the OKC zoo.  Yes, it’s hot outside, and walking around the zoo may not be very appealing.  However, the new children’s zoo section is shady and very neat, plus you can always ride the tram around the zoo instead of walking.

Get a jump on your science class by visiting Science Museum Oklahoma.  Previously called the Omniplex, the museum has a lot of very cool hands-on exhibits.  End your visit with a trip through space at the planetarium and a visit to the gift shop.

Visit Frontier City or White Water Bay.  In fact, you can get often get double admission tickets to these two theme parks.  Frontier City features great roller coasters, magic shows, and more, while White Water has some amazing water slides and pools.

No matter what you and the kids do during their last few weeks of freedom, make sure it’s enjoyable.  A nice, relaxing family outing is a great way to bring summer to a close and start the school year off right.

OKC Blog Girl has some cheap things to do this summer on her blog.  Not all of them would make for good family events, though.

Rick Jackson’s Blog also has some ideas for end of summer activities.
