5 Acts of Kindness in Funderland

Feb25

Kindness is one of the values that we feel is so important to teach our children in today’s world. We could all use a little more kindness in our day and taking the time to teach our children how to be kind will not only benefit our families, but will also have an impact on the big wide world as well.

At Funderland, we believe in having fun, of course! Being kind to others is a great way to help make sure that everybody gets to have fun.

Here are 5 acts of kindness that your children can practice while having a great time at Funderland:

  1. Let a child cut in line. It may be a true test of patience, but allow your children to let another child cut in front of them in line. Since they have to sacrifice and wait a bit longer, it’s an even better lesson in kindness.
  2. Pick up trash. Teach your children to look for trash on the ground, even if it isn’t their own, and pick it up (carefully of course) and throw away in a nearby trash can. Keeping the park cleaner helps everybody enjoy the experience even more.
  3. Donate a ride ticket. If you’re able to spare 1 extra ride ticket, let your children donate it to a child of their choice in the park – maybe a child who is sad or one who is being especially obedient to their parents.
  4. Share some art supplies. Help your children pick out a new game or art supplies to bring in for River Oak Center for Children during our Easter Bash on March 27th through 29th and receive free ride tickets. (Amount of tickets given based on items received). Children can practice kindness and help a good cause at the same time.
  5. Smile and say hello. Teach your children to make eye contact with other children and adults. Have them smile and say hello to their fellow Funderland friends.

Funderland can be more than the funnest little place in the land. It can be the kindest place, too!

What other ways do you like to teach your children to be kind?

Happy Holidays from Funderland!

Dec16

It’s hard to believe that 2014 is almost over! If you feel like the years are just flying by (we do!) now is a great time to take a few minutes and reflect on all the amazing things that this year brought to all of us!

Why the Holidays Make Us Happy

There is so much to be thankful for and so many wonderful memories made each year. Whether it’s meeting new friends, celebrating family milestones and achievements, or heading out on a new adventure like a big move, new job, or family vacation; you’ve done a lot this year!

Here’s just a few things that we’ll remember from 2014:

  • We celebrated 30 years of dishing up pint-sized rides and fun for the Sacramento Area. It’s so exciting to see 2nd and even 3rd generation families visiting our park with their kids and grandkids.
  • We added a new baby to our herd. The Funderland Family welcomed a sweet baby girl this Spring and we’re so happy to have a new little to call our own!
  • We’ve made so many new local friends and connected with new families in the greater Sacramento Area. We love being a part of your family’s lives and feel honored to be a part of the memory making.
  • We’ve already started on renovations and in-park improvements that we can’t wait to unveil during the 2015 and 2016 seasons. We know you’ll love them too!

So what memories will you cherish from 2014? We hope you find a moment or two to reflect and be thankful for this beautiful life and all it has in store! Are you ready to make some more memories in 2015? Purchase your 2015 Season Passes here by Dec. 31st and save $15 off each!

Wishing you and yours – Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from your friends at Funderland Amusement Park

See you in 2015!

Spice up Your Thanksgiving Celebrations

Nov14

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year to spend with family and friends and celebrate the season. However, if you’re looking for ways to spice up your Thanksgiving celebrations, we have a couple of festive ideas for you and your family to try this year!

1. Give back this Thanksgiving

There are lots of ways to give back to your community or to local or national non-profits. This is just another great way to help teach kids the art of gratitude and build their character.

2. Get your kids to be grateful

Spend about 10 -15 minutes as a family sharing what you’re thankful for. Encourage your kids to think beyond being thankful for their toys (although these are things to be grateful for too!). Jot down what everyone shares and save them someplace safe. Then next year you can re-read them together and remember all that you were thankful for!

3. Make festive crafts with the kids

Get crafty by making miniature Mayflowers, Turkey Pinecones, & Fun Leaf Fans – perfect for decorating your home and bringing the holidays inside.

4. Pumpki-fy your snack time

Instead of pumpkin pie – try a Pumpkin Spice Smoothie. Pumpkins are packed full of good for you nutrients like Vit. A and is low in calories. Your kids will love the smooth texture and sweet comforting flavors.

5 Fun Ways to Celebrate Fall

Sep18

This time of year is one of Happy the Squirrel’s favorite times of year! Since he’s busy stocking up his acorns for winter, we’ve got a few fun ways to celebrate fall with your family at home, out and about, or in our park! Choose your favorite or do all 5 and keep the fall fun going.

Festive & Fun Ways to Celebrate Fall as a Family

1. Make something sweet with apples

These seasonal favorites are at the peak of harvest, making them sweet and inexpensive. They’re great for dipping, tossing in a salad, snacking on with cheese, or baking into your favorite desserts. Some of our favorite includes apple muffins, and home-made apple sauce.

2. Embrace all types of gourds

Pumpkins are another season favorite, but there are lots of other fun fall decorations that are from the gourd family. In hues of green, orange, yellow, and white, you can turn any area in your home into a festive fall oasis.

3. Turn your backyard into a weekend farm

Hosting a fun harvest themed party is just what this time of year calls for. Invite the kiddos over for apple bobbing, pumpkin decorating, pin the face on the pumpkin, and harvest hoedown (musical chairs).

4. Have a Fall-themed scavenger hunt

Print items to hunt for before heading out into your neighborhood or local park. Seasonal items include acorns, colorful leaves, pumpkins, scarecrows, rakes, squirrels, pinecones, apples, and more!

5. Turn ordinary household items into crafts for the kids

You don’t have to spend a fortune on holiday inspired crafts. You just have to gather up a few household items and get creative. We love these 10 craft ideas using commonly found items in your home.

Of course, we’d love to see you out enjoying the cool, crisp weather and blustery days with us! Take advantage of our After School Special from 3-5pm for ½ off unlimited ride weekday wristbands, soar high on our Flying Dragon ride, and snap a fun festive photo at our various photo ops.
