Fun activities for kids in Denver | Denver Children’s photography | Truth Photography LLC

I can’t believe it is already summer! I am sure I am not the only mom trying to figure out what to do with my kids all summer so they don’t spend all of their time in front of a TV or playing video games on your ipad. Never fear, I am here to help. As a Colorado native I spent many childhood days visiting local museums and other attractions. Here is an extensive list of all of the kids friendly activities I could find in Denver and beyond. Click on the name to visit the locations website for more information.

I have split it into categories to make it easier to find what you are looking for. I am going to continue to add to the list so tell me what events, attractions etc I have missed and I will add them in! Enjoy!
