third, here are a few links to some of our favorite go-to activities. check them out and see what would interest your kiddies.

OC Zoo
just $2 per person, you can see animals native to Orange County. bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the rest of Irvine Regional Park as well.
Irvine Park Railroad
a favorite of my two-year old. we can’t leave without riding the train $4, and taking a ride on a pony $4. go to their website to find coupons for a discounted train rides.

we just love feeding the guinea pigs and bunnies. plus, it’s nice to walk around the charming historic town, catching a glimpse of the train, and grabbing a bit to eat at Ruby’s Diner.

Tidepools at Corona Del Mar (don’t forget your galoshes)
Indiana Jones Exhibit at Discovery Cube

Fun things to do in your very own Kitchen

Winter Play sessions at Scooter’s Jungle

Scooter’s has open play sessions almost every day during the break. i love it because the kiddies are contained and able to run around and get their energy out!
lastly….you could let the kids toilet paper you house!!!!  LOL.


  1. Thanks for including me on your list, Jill!

  2. Hehe I love the last one. Maybe we will do that tomorrow before cleaning up the Christmas disaster!
