Spend the day at Hoof Prints Barnyard

It is a proven fact that interacting with animals can boost a humans mood. What better way to spend the day than to spend it at a petting zoo!

Hoof Prints Barnyard is Kelowna’s only petting zoo and an ethical farm animal rescue facility. This petting zoo is located on 8 acres of land and has lots of fun family things to do!
Whether you go on an open public day, have a private event or go for a birthday party there is always something going on. There is over 70 farm animals on the property that you can view and interact with. Hoof Prints Barnyard uses all the entrance donations and anything else they make at the farm for the animals on the farm whether it is food or their medical needs. Host your kids birthday party here with pony rides, the petting zoo, roasting marshmallows on the fire when the fire ban isn’t in affect and indoor western themed party room.

Have you heard of Goga?

This is a very popular event that must be pre booked. Come spend an hour doing yoga with the goats. The goats are babies still and will be wearing their yoga outfits with their diapers. They will jump on you and go under you while you are doing yoga like you are their own personal jungle gym. This is something that should be on everyone’s bucket lists – Yoga with goats! $20 for adults, $10 for kids 8-15, or $50 for 2 adults and two children.

On Public days the farm is open to everyone to come enjoy.

Admission is a minimum $5 donation for anyone over the age of 3. Attend the bonfire and roast some marshmallows after enjoying a hot dog from the concession stand. Spend some time with the family in the petting zoo area or play in the play area with your loved ones making some memories.  If being on the farm and spending time outdoors is your thing, spend some more time here hosting your family reunion or having a wedding. Be sure to bring cash as this is the only type of payment Hoof Prints Barnyard accepts.

If you are looking for a family game that will not only entertain your family members but will also develop creativity and expand vocabulary, this game is the perfect choice!

The dictionary game is great for a big family, or a group of friends. All you need is an old dictionary! (or you can simply download a dictionary app on your mobile phone). One person chooses an unknown word from the dictionary and the rest of the people write a fake definition for this word (trust us, this part is very funny!). The person who picked the word adds a card with the correct definition and shuffles it with suggested answers. After this he/she reads all definitions aloud and players vote for what they think is the true definition. Players earn points when they guess the right definition. Players can also gain points for having the most picked INCORRECT definition (So it pays to be creative!).

This game will not only bring a lot of fun to your family evening but also will help to learn a lot of new words in a game form (especially useful for the youngest family members ☺).

And if you’re looking for a great snack to boost brain power during game night, why not prepare this delicious Chocolate Banana Smoothie
