Interview with a 10 Year Old

Maggie is in the 5th grade, loves art, dogs, running cross country and is interested in learning gymnastics. Since she lives in N. Idaho, we thought we’d get the inside scoop from a 10 year old.

Q.  What would you say are the best 5 things to do while visiting North Idaho?Biking the Centennial Trail in Post Falls, ID

A.  Swimming, boating, hiking….taking beautiful drives….looking at scenery.

Q.  Hmm.  That’s interesting – what are you doing right now?

A.  Driving down the road in the back seat.

Q.  Do you think kids would like to take beautiful drives and look at scenery?

A.  No – probably not.

Q.  So besides swimming, boating and hiking, what should kids do when they visit Idaho in the Summer?

A.  Go to the movies, and miniature golfing at TriplePlay!

Q.  That sounds fun…what else?  How about something kids can’t do when they’re in their home towns.

A.  Definitely Silverwood.  [local amusement park]  And, drink hot chocolate overlooking the lake.  [first floor of the CDA Resort/Marina].

Now maybe we’re getting somewhere!!

Idaho Outdoors for Kids!

This is more of a link than a blog post, but I found this great site for connecting kids to nature in Idaho & had to share!  Check it out & let me know what you think.

Idaho Outdoors for Kids!

 

Silverwood Theme Park

30 minutes from either Coeur d’Alene or Sandpoint, Silverwood is located in Athol, Idaho.  In the northwest you cannot beat this complete amusement experience…just ask the kids! 

There are a number of exciting rollercoasters, water rides (love the classic log ride!), a free fall from hell, and a complete waterpark.  Not to mention the greasy, sugary, fried foods we all look forward to, shows and a ton of rides for the smaller kids. 

Just heed my warning about the free fall – grown men have been known to scream!
