Are you looking for local children's and family entertainment in your area? Do you have guest visiting and need something to do? Then look in your own town for a wide variety of local children's and family entertainment. If its summer and vacation time has brought visitors to your home then check with your local movie theater for children's movies in the morning. Most theaters run a summer special, showing movies for kids and family at a very low price. It is meant to be a special time for parents and kids or a time for the kids to have a place to go while the parents rest from all the activities. Next is your local city and county parks. You can search through the phone directory for parks near you. For local children's and family entertainment this is one with sunshine, fun and time together. Most parks offer a children's playground area with the latest in safe toys. You can watch as the children slide and climb on colorful playground equipment with others. When they start asking about food and something to drink just pull the picnic basket from the car and set it out at one of the many table sites available throughout the park. Many of the parks have cooking areas available for family cookouts and reunions or parties. There are plenty of containers to throw away left over trash when you are finished your celebration. For your last relaxing activity take a stroll through the park and point out animals to the children. You can learn more about plant life and the eco system through your local parks. As the children begin to tire it's time to watch for different types of birds as you make your way back to your car to head home.
