6 Things to Do with Your Kids This Spring in Enid

By: Wendy Washburn, Enid Travel Advocate

1. Leonardo’s Children’s Museum

Leonardo’s Children’s Museum is one of our all-time favorite places to visit. From the animals, to the different exhibits they have throughout the year, to Adventure Quest, there is so much to see, do and learn. You can lay on a bed of nails, power a small city with wind power, practice your dental skills, and shop in their fully stocked grocery store. Once you’ve explored all there is to do inside it’s time to go explore Adventure Quest. The wooden castle is fun for the whole family. They have areas for the smallest members of your family or follow your big kids through the castle and explore all there is to find. Not big on climbing or crawling through the castle? Find a shady area to sit and relax while your kids burn off some energy.

2. Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center 

Take a trip back in time at the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center. Maya’s favorite part would have to be their History Alive Days. The museum truly comes alive from learning how to use an old sewing machine, to learning how to rope, “driving” an old tractor, seeing the cute farm animals, and learning cursive in the one-room schoolhouse. There’s truly something for everyone. If you aren’t a big crowd person I would suggest going early. Not as many people were there when we went first thing in the morning.

3. Simpson’s Old Time Museum 

If you love history, Simpson’s Old Time Museum is full of historical treasures and fun facts about Enid.  We had the pleasure of getting a private tour from Mr. Rick Simpson himself. He showed us the movie sets in the museum that they still use to shoot movies in. Rick explained all the fun history about Enid. We learned so much and the kids were entertained for hours.

4. Champlin Park

Champlin Park is one of our favorite parks to visit. There’s plenty of room to run and play, the big slide is Maya’s favorite, and a walking trail. We discovered a fun walking activity on our last visit. StoryWalk at Champlin Park starts at sign one located by the picnic table, then follow the signs until the end. You can scan the QR code on the sign and it will read you a page from the book on the sign. Maya would race to the next sign to see if she could guess what the next story would be about. This fun activity just adds a little something extra to your day at the park.

5. 4RKids Miniature Golf 

4RKids Miniature golf is always a fun time and while you’re there you have to check out their Second Story Gift Shop. They have so many cute items and their prices are great. The mini golf course is full of fun scenery and even a couple trick shot holes. Maya’s favorite was when the ball went through the tunnel. A mini golf trip would be complete without ending with a fun sno-cone treat.

6. Braum’s 

What spring day isn’t complete without a trip to get ice cream? Braum’s is one of our go to places for an ice cream date. Maya loves their cherry limeade ice cream and their soft frozen yogurt in a waffle cone is one of my favorites while my husband is a huge fan of their banana splits.
