The Starsmore Discovery Center is a great place to take young children. They especially enjoy handling the hides, pelts, antlers and bones upstairs, and playing with the sand table downstairs. The sand table has plaster casts of various animal footprints and every kid loves to stamp the prints into the sand and then smooth them away with the plexiglass scrapers. There was an exhibit that allowed you to view various minerals in black light, but I can't guarantee it's working now. Kids love to see the brilliant colors appear on an otherwise drab rock.
The drive up North Cheyenne Canyon is beautiful anytime of year and a great way to stay in touch with how the seasons are advancing through the natural world.
