We FINALLY made it! The holiday today celebrated the first “Roller Coaster” – patented on this date back in 1898 (would you have wanted to ride that roller coaster?) Anywho…not too many roller coasters up in these parts that a 21 month old can ride, so I figured Fairytale Town could kind of “double” as an amusement park for the time being. It was a hit!
For those of you unfamiliar with Fairytale Town (or just wanting to know more!), it’s been open since 1959! It’s goal is to provide a fun, literacy-focused location for kids to play for a nominal fee. Sticking true to their word, it’s only $4 to enter…however, due to this, updates are slow in coming. Regardless, Cooper and the friends who joined us all had an absolute ball! What a fun way to review nursery rhymes.
Here are the rhymes/fairytale stories Cooper enjoyed while we were there:
I hadn’t heard of this nursery rhyme before, so I had to look it up. This is what I found (kinda rings a bell):
There was a crooked man, and he went a crooked mile,
And found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile,
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.
I’m guessing fairytales here with the pirate ship? I’m not second guessing this, though…anything involving pirates I’m all for! Arrrggghhhh!
What fun! I would definitely suggest Fairytale Town if you’re ever in the Sacramento area. Fun, fun!
