Winter Break Activities for Kids, Melbourne, FL

Come visit me during Winter Break in Melbourne, FL!

My last post was all about camps and activities for kids during their Winter Break from school. This post is just another idea for "things to do in Brevard County" during the Winter Break. 

As you might have gathered through my previous posts, I absolutely love our local zoo, the Brevard Zoo, located on Wickham Road in Melbourne, FL. I have a family membership to the Brevard Zoo (Zoo membership - great Christmas gift idea for your children or grandchildren!), and as I was looking through their most recent newsletter, I was so excited to read about Brevard Zoo's "Gifts to the Animals" event. This is a perfect "Winter Break Activity" for the kids, right before Christmas!

So, here's the scoop on Brevard Zoo's "Gifts to the Animals" event... taken right from the Brevard Zoo website:

December 21 - 23: Gifts to the Animals:

Fun for the whole family from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.!  Each day the Zoo will give gifts to the animals at the following times:

Wednesday, December 21
11 a.m. Caracara, Wild Florida
12 p.m. Siamangs, Just west of Africa
2 p.m. Klipspringer Yard, Expedition Africa

In addition, the Zoo hosts Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Flamingo Cafe from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. each day. There will also be special animal encounters at the Main Entrance at 10:30 a.m. & 2:30 p.m., and games and crafts in Paws On from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. FREE with Zoo admission. No reservations required.

Gifts for the animals AND Santa and Mrs. Claus?! So fun! This is the perfect pre-holiday event for school-age kids. I am just trying to decide which day I want to go... maybe all of them!
