Woodland Park Zoo and Theo Chocolate host two events this Saturday April 4th that parents and kids will love!

Chocolate Story Time

At the Theo Factory
From 10:30-11:30am, $10

You and your little one are invited to join us for a morning of chocolate and imagination. We will explore the art of chocolate through hands-on activities, a cozy story time, and chocolate treats. Let us introduce you to the story of Molly and the Chocolate Tree, written by one of our very own Theo Chocolate tour guides.  Join us for an hour of chocolate delight. Recommended for ages 4-7. An adult chaperone is required to accompany young guests. We suggest wearing clothes you won’t mind getting a little messy! Please RSVP HERE.

Can’t make it tomorrow? More stories will be told again on May 5th, details here.

Don’t forget some Theo chocolate for Easter festivities!



Bunny Bounce

At the Woodland Park Zoo
From 9:30 am- 3:00 pm, free with zoo admission/membership

Egg Hunts and Family Activities

Throughout the day, families can enjoy amazing egg hunts for children ages 1-8, crafts, bunny encounters and other eggs-citing zoo programs. Each egg hunt is open on a first-come, first-served basis. Space may be limited.

Egg hunts for ages 3-5 and 6-8 in the North Meadow: 10:00 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m., noon, 1:00 p.m., 1:30 p.m., 2:00 p.m., 2:30 p.m.

Egg hunts for ages 3 and under are held in the Picnic Shelter near the North Meadow: 9:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m.

As part of the zoo’s conservation mission, families must bring their own egg hunt basket or reusable bag.  For the health and well-being of the zoo’s animals, candy will not be placed inside the eggs—egg hunt participants will receive their treats as they exit the zoo.

Easter Enrichment for the Animals

Meerkats, gorillas, otters and more nibble on specially made Easter baskets lined with flowers, berries and other favorite treats. The special treats are part of the zoo’s excellent animal care program to help enrich the lives of the zoo’s animals, promote natural animal behavior, keep animals mentally stimulated and engage zoo visitors.
