Before you dust off the turkey fryer and find your favorite uncle’s stuffing recipe, make sure you’ve enrolled your kids into a Thanksgiving break activity program. The city of Davis has several Thanksgiving break offerings from Monday to Wednesday, Nov. 25-27, to tide your child over until the tryptophan can!
The Gymnastics and Dance Center at the Civic Center Gym, 23 Russell Blvd., is holding Tumbling with Turkeys from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day. There will be gymnastics, games and crafts for kids 5 to 12 years old.
If forward rolls aren’t your child’s thing, how about Ninjaneering or a Junkyard Challenge? Ninjaneering with Lego is for children ages 5 to 7. They’ll build the Fire Temple (no actual flame involved), race Skull trucks and encounter the mighty Dragon. The class runs from 9 a.m. to noon at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St.
For older kids, ages 8-12, there is the Junkyard Challenge, which involves building elevators, bulldozers (not to scale), conveyor belts and other motorized contraptions out of Legos. The class meets from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Veterans’ Memorial Center.
For specific class information or to sign up, call the city of Davis Community Services Office at 530-757-5626 or visit www.cityofdavis.org.
