Interactive Activities for Kids in Lethbridge
Grab the kiddos and get ready for a day of learning through experience, there’s a whole lot to do in Lethbridge to keep those young minds busy!
Learn, interact and discover everything the outdoors in southern Alberta has to offer at the Helen Schuler Nature Centre. While you learn about the cottonwood forest and the different types of animals found in the Lethbridge River Bottom, the kids can squeal and squirm in delight while holding Sophie the gopher snake. If snakes are a no-go for your little one, the Centre also has Gerry the Western Toad, and a tiger salamander named Taco-Charlie they can fawn over.
Get in touch with the colourful history of southern Alberta at the Galt Museum & Archives. In addition to housing over 5,000 square feet of interactive displays to explore, the museum puts on popular events and exciting weekly programs for all ages. And with a thrilling scavenger hunt for the kids, the museum is a fun and interactive experience for the whole family.
A short drive east brings you to Coaldale where the acclaimed Alberta Birds of Prey Foundation has been rescuing and rehabilitating wild and endangered birds since 1984. Their hands-on approach to teaching visitors about birds and the environment allows a unique space for amazing flight demonstrations by a falcon or eagle, and the one of a kind opportunity for your child to get up close and personal with an owl as it perches on their arm.
Give yourself, and your littles a creative outlet with a class at Casa’s. Watch them light up as they create something completely their own out of clay, or listen to the music of their giggles as they dance around the room. Casa offers unique and engaging classes for kids of all ages to help them fly their creative flag.
