Plan a Day at William Land Park

Mar26

Where can you play softball and soccer, host a family reunion, attend a charity event, and spend a day enjoying rides and games in Sacramento? Right here, in William Land Park. Home to yours truly, Funderland, Fairytale Town, the Sacramento Zoo, and the William Land Golf Course, as well as picnic areas, ponds, playgrounds, and sports fields.

 Funderland Amusement Park

We love that so many park goers choose to spend a fun filled day with family and friends at our amusement park! Because each ride is unique and kid-friendly, there’s something fun for everyone. In addition to offering birthday party packages, we also offer fundraising opportunities and two academic field trips for schools: Math & Science and Language & Fine Arts, where kids learn how the rides work and all the creativity involved in making the rides. Who knew learning could be so fun?

Fairytale Town

Teach children to appreciate the gift of reading at this storybook-themed park. Everyone remembers clambering through the Crooked Mile, and who doesn’t love meeting all the cuddly barnyard animals? Fairytale Town offers field trips, workshops, and summer camps.They’re not just limited to animals and gardening, though. You can be in a theatre, band, or art camp, too!

 Sacramento Zoo

Lions and tigers and wallabies, oh my! While visiting William Land Park hop on over to the Sacramento Zoo and discover the plethora of exotic mammals, birds, amphibians, and reptiles that call this place home. The Zoo offers field trips, birthday parties, summer classes, and Overnight Safaris for adventure seekers. Kids will love the nighttime tour, animal feeding, spending the night under the stars, and waking up with the animals.

William Land Golf Course

Did you know that William Land Golf Course, which opened in 1924, was the first golf course in Sacramento? Golfers young and old still enjoy this golf course in the heart of Land Park today. WLGC offers both summer camps and junior programs and the golfing instructors are dedicated to teaching junior golfers life skills such as respect for others, good sportsmanship, confidence, and perseverance.

William Land Park is a great place for families to spend time having fun together, being creative, and learning in Sacramento. Come on down and and spend a day with us!

Four Easy Recipes to Make With Kids

Four Easy Recipes to Make With Kids

It’s a great idea to get your kids involved in the kitchen as soon as possible.  Before you know it, they’re going to be moving out and having to cook for themselves.  Because kids are more likely to eat what they help cook (even if they don’t normally eat it), cooking together is a good way to teach kids to follow instructions thoroughly.  Even little ones can help by standing on stools and stirring or putting toppings on pizza.  Here are some tasty easy recipes to make with kids as they begin their adventure into the kitchen.

Pizza Bread

Pizza is easy for kids to make because it doesn’t involve a lot of stove or oven use, and it’s easy for little kids because most of it’s putting on the toppings.

Sourdough or English muffins, sliced sourdough, or French bread

1 jar spaghetti sauce

Shredded cheese

Pepperoni slices

Sliced olives, mushrooms, bell peppers, green onions, etc.

1.  Lightly toast the bread.

2.  Spread each slice with spaghetti sauce.

3.  Sprinkle a generous amount of mozzarella cheese over the sauce.  Put pepperoni slices over the cheese.

4.  Add sliced olives, mushrooms, chopped green onions, red bell peppers, or whatever veggies your kids like.

5.  “Glue” the toppings in place by sprinkling some cheddar, parmesan, or mozzarella cheese over the bread.

6.  Bake the pizzas for about 10-15 minutes at 400°.

7.  Let the pizzas cool, then enjoy!

Grilled Cheese

Grilled cheese is easy for a quick lunch or dinner that the kids can help make.

Sliced sourdough, wheat, or white bread

Butter or mayonnaise

Sliced cheese

Sliced deli ham or pepperoni (optional)

1.  Spread the insides of two slices of bread with butter or mayonnaise.

2.  Layer one side of the bread with sliced cheese and pepperoni or deli ham, if you like.  Place the other slice of bread over it.

3.  Place on a heated greased griddle or skillet and cook until one side is golden brown, then turn and cook the other side.

4.  Remove from pan and enjoy!

Fruit Dip

Fruit dip is a fun treat to have with fruit as an after-school snack.

7oz Marshmallow Creme

7oz Marshmallow Creme

8oz low-fat or whipped cream cheese, softened to room temperature

2 Tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate

Fruit dippers: strawberries, grapes, pineapple, apples, berries, cantaloupe

1. Spoon marshmallow creme into a large, microwave safe bowl, and microwave for 20 seconds.

2.  Whisk in softened cream cheese and orange juice concentrate until very smooth.

3.  Chill, then serve with fruit.

Frozen Yogurt Pops

These popsicles are good for you, and great on a hot day (though they take a while to freeze).

2 cups fresh blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and sliced bananas, mixed

2 cups plain or vanilla yogurt

1/4 cup white sugar or honey

8 small paper cups

8 popsicle sticks

1.  Place the mixed blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, sliced bananas, yogurt, and sugar into a blender.

2.  Cover, and blend until fruit is chunky or smooth, as desired.

3.  Fill paper cups 3/4 full with fruit mixture. Cover the top of each cup with a strip of aluminum foil. Poke a popsicle stick through the center of the foil on each cup.

4.  Place the cups in the freezer for at least 5 hours. To serve, remove foil and peel off the paper cup.
