If you are done with the school shopping but are still looking for some last minute fun things to do with your kids before they go back to school next week, one idea is the Box Elder County Fair.
Today is the last day of the fair, so head on out for some delicious food, check out the garden and home arts exhibits, and enjoy the rodeo. There is live entertainment on the bandstand all day, and the kids always enjoy seeing the animal exhibits, too.
The fair is located at 320 N. 1000 W., Tremonton, and it runs until 10:30 p.m. tonight. For more information go to http://www.boxeldercounty.org/fair.htm.
Another fun thing to do with the kids is to see the movie, Planes. Although as adults we will be aware of the blatant efforts of the creators of this movie to produce it to make toys that we will then have to buy for our children, the movie does set a good example for child viewers. The main character, Dusty, works hard at practicing his skills to be better. He also learns to face his fears (yes, he is a height-fearing plane). He also is aware of his shortcomings but never gives up. All in all, your little ones are sure to enjoy another Pixar movie full of action and cute, animated characters.
Enjoy the last of your summer with your kids!
