I'm a little late on this, but if you have little ones and a Bass Pro Shops near you, I recommend taking them to Santa's Wonderland for a lot of free fun! We went this last Christmas and the year before. Kudos to Bass Pro for having so much free fun, and kudos to Chad for all that he does to set it up.
Here are a few photos from one of our visits there with Cale's cousin Kalyn.
Free photo with Santa!
Cale's favorite part of Santa's Wonderland - the train!
Free remote control truck driving
Free stocking to decorate and coloring pages to color
She was helping Cale
Then went to work on hers! Go Kalyn!
There are kid crafts, you can write a letter to Santa, free slot car racing, hunting games, and a bunch of other things to do for all ages. All free! We get nada for talking up Bass Pro. I just think all the free fun is awesome. You don't have to spend a dime, and there's so much to do! This is making me wish Santa's Wonderland was still set up, so we could go have some fun. Next year!
Whatever you're doing, remember "Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will."
Happy hump day!
