Story time is one of my favorite ways to share my love of books and learning with my young children. But story time at Rancho Las Lomas takes storytelling to a whole new level. Not only do children get to hear a fun animal-related story (or two!), but they’re also treated to a related craft project and a visit with an animal friend as well.
This past week, we enjoyed the springtime story time at Rancho Las Lomas, featuring two stories about parrots and cockatoos. For the craft project, the kids made treat toys for the resident parrots and cockatoos to play with and nibble on. After they were done creating them, we got to deliver the toys to the birds themselves, and watch them devour their treats. I loved this idea!
There’s something about Rancho Las Lomas… the beautiful, picturesque setting makes you feel like you’re miles away from the hustle and bustle of Orange County.
Plus, the guided tour and animal explanations are a wonderful way for the kids to learn something while having fun.
