Cincinnati Zoo -Staycation Ideas


We love our local zoo and have been members for the past ten years. One of our favorite activities this time of year is spending time at the Cincinnati Zoo. Since the zoo is closed right now, we are bringing the zoo to our house.


Here are some books that we read about the zoo:


Snack ideas: Popcorn, animal crackers, Zebra cakes, ice cream (Graeter’s has a Fiona flavor).

  • Ride the rides on YouTube using laundry baskets.
  • Wear Mickey and Minnie ears.
  • Wear Disney shirts.
  • Wear Magic Bands from our last Disney trip.

Staycation Day 1-Spa and Beach Day

Our Spring Break started today and since everything is cancelled from COVID-19, we are making the best of things here at home. Everything we are doing is simple and using what we have around the house. We started the day by having a spa day. The girls got their nails painted and they all enjoyed foot soaking. Then we had a picnic lunch outside on beach towels. The kids played with kinetic sand just like at the beach.  We read some beach themed books:

Other ideas: Snack on Goldfish, watch movies like Moana, Finding Nemo, and Finding Dory.

If you are looking for some adult books to read to feel like you are visiting the beach:
