Thanksgiving break is under way and there are still days to go until the turkey is cooked and the family fun begins.
If you’re stumped on what to do with the kids to occupy their time, here are a few no- and low-cost ideas in the Land O' Lakes area:
- Visit the parks – Pasco County schools are closed, but the parks aren’t. Take a trip to one of the area’s parks or playgrounds for a day. From the Land O' Lakes Community Center and Conner Preserve to Lake Park, Lettuce Lake Park and beyond, both Pasco and Hillsborough have some treasures well worth exploring.
- Catch a matinee – Thanksgiving time is traditionally a great period for family friendly movies. Take in a matinee at one of the area’s theaters to kill a few hours. If you go in the early afternoon hours, the pricing is greatly reduced for both children and adults.
- Check out Xtreme Adventures – This business has indoor laser tag and also offers bumper cars, an Xtreme jump and arcade games. It’s running specials throughout the holiday break. Check out its website for details.
- Make some crafts at home – If you want to keep little hands busy, there are all kinds of holiday crafts they can create to decorate the dinner table for the feast. Then snap a photo or two of the masterpieces and add them to our Pics and Clips Gallery and voila! They're famous artists!
