Your child's summer break gives you both the opportunity to engage in different activities and have some bonding time. However, if you're worried your child's development will be hindered now they're not in school, you can find things to do that will keep their mind awake. For example, taking them to the zoo will teach them about zoology, ecology, geography, and more. If you'd like to take your child to the zoo this summer, below you'll find tips on how to make the most out of your visit.

How to Visit the Zoo with Your Child this Summer

  1. You should begin by researching the zoo, their offerings, the weather, and more. Doing so will help you set the right expectations and prepare for the day ahead.
  2. Speaking of setting expectations, go over the rules with your child. These should include: no littering, no feeding the animals, no reaching into cages, and no straying away from you.
  3. Having the right dress and items can guarantee a successful visit. To that end, dress in comfortable, weather-appropriate, and breathable clothes that will protect you from the summer sun. Also, don't forget to wear sunscreen, and to take enough water and snacks for your day out.
  4. It should go without saying that you should pay attention to your child at all times. A zoo is no place for them to be wandering on their own, so keep them close by to ensure they don't get themselves or others in danger.
  5. This is a learning trip, so try to learn! To do so, observe the animals' appearance and behavior, and listen for the noises they make. Additionally, you can read the cards next to their cages to learn about their origins, diet, habits, and more.
  6. As a final tip, if your zoo has a kid's area available, take yours to it! Zoos often put together games and activities aimed at children (especially during summer) to help them learn about animals and their ecosystems.
