You know the classic story of the child setting the toy aside to play with the box it came in. Once the wrapping comes off of the holidays, children are often ready for their next adventure, even with all those new toys. We're here to help with these ideas.

The Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center in Woodland Park is holding it's annual "Free Kids Day" on Tuesday, December 27th. Two youngsters 12 and under can get in free with one paid adult admission. That's a savings of up to $23. Marc Straub of "Cool Science" will present shows at 11:30am and 2pm, and will be there all day for hands-on activities.

The youngsters in your life can have a free big top adventure when the Salida Circus pulls into the Penrose Library in downtown Colorado Springs for a "Circus Toy Workshop." It's Wednesday, December 28th from 10:30am until 11:20am. Children can try bucket stilts, juggling scarves, and spinning plates.

The entire family can enjoy a free movie night at the Old Colorado City Library branch on Tuesday evening, December 27th. It will screen Kung Fu Panda 2 at 6:30pm. The kids can even wear their jammies.

Here are some "Web Exclusive" events you can also enjoy.

The Bear Creek Nature Center in Colorado Springs is presenting
"The Hidden World of Bears" exhibit on Wednesday, December 28th from 9:00am until 2:00pm. The exhibit highlights 35 years of research with interactive exhibits and over 50 framed photographs that open the door into the intimate lives of these surprisingly timid animals.

The entire family can enjoy story time at Barnes & Noble near The Citadel Mall on Friday, December 23rd, starting at 10:30am. You'll hear "If You Give a Dog a Donut" by Laura Numeroff. There will be a snack and craft along with the story.
