That is Ladybug inside the kid friendly aquarium at SeaLife back in 2009. When we first moved to SoCal, one of our favorite places to take our (then young) kids was the aquarium. We must have gone there 100 times, but I must admit it wasn’t an easy thing to share with small kids. All that lifting and fighting the crowds. it is a wonderful place, but not all that kid friendly. The first time Mr. Vixen and I took the girls to SeaLife Aquarium we were so thrilled! It is so perfect for even the smallest toddler. We are taking the girl’s again tomorrow, combining some fun with one of my personal crusades (some of you might remember my adventure in public service with I Love A Clean San Diego back in 2008) and I wanted to share the info in case you wanted to join in the fun.
Looking for something fun and educational to do with your kid’s tomorrow? This Saturday is Underwater Parks Day, with kid-friendly activities designed to raise awareness of the newly designated “Underwater Parks” or Marine Protected Areas. Guests will have a chance to create a personalized take-home habitat, add to the Happy Habitat Mural inside the Aquarium and visit a mini Conservation Expo with hands-on exhibits to learn how their family can get involved in caring for our ocean locally.
New to this year’s festival, families will gain a better understanding of what an Underwater Park is during The Daily Dive show at 11 a.m. in SEA LIFE Carlsbad Aquarium’s Shipwreck Gallery. Using an underwater communication mask, a diver will give a child-friendly presentation about these special areas from inside the Lost City of Atlantis, the Aquarium’s 200,000 gallon ocean display.
Underwater Parks Day at SEA LIFE Carlsbad Aquarium takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and all activities are included in the cost of Aquarium admission – $20 for adults, $17 for seniors and $13 for kids 3 to 12. For more information on SEA LIFE Carlsbad Aquarium visit www.sealifeus.com.
