Autumn Harvest Celebration
Sponsored by HarvestTymeFun.com

October 1 - November 1 | Regular Admission

The pumpkins are fresh for painting, and things are getting hay filled and mazey crazy! It's time to stuff scarecrows and stamp apples.

Fall is here, and Bellaboo's has all the fall fun just the right size for your little one!

Superhero Photo Ops & Props | Chalk Skyline
Superhero Training | Bubble Wrap Run


Not-So-Creepy Critter Crawl
Brought to you by the Chicago Herpetological Society

Friday, October 20 10am-4pm| Regular Admission

The Chicago Herpetological Society is in the house! Join us and meet a slew of snakes, lizards, turtles, and other reptillian friends. This fun, unique event allows kids to get hands-on interaction with unexpected animals, helping foster a love of all creatures... no matter how creepy they may seem!

Not so sure? Don't worry! Animal encounters are totally optional, and easy to avoid if you're feeling snake-phobic. All of Bellaboo's is open for play all day!

Success by 6 Trail at Bellaboo’s

The Lake County Parks and United Way Success By 6 have teamed up to add a Born Learning Trail at Bellaboo’s.  Both outdoor and indoor activities are listed on each of the ten trail signs designed to encourage parents and caregivers to do activities with the children. 

The concept of the Born Learning Trail is that children are born learning, which is a perfect fit with Bellaboo’s. For wonderful resources click on their link https://www.bornlearning.org/
