Preschool Age Activities

We will be visiting 11/23-25 with a 4.5 and 2.5 year old. The only real plans we have so far is the Zoo. What other preschool age sites/activities do you recommend?

You might like the McCormick Railroad Park at Indian Bend and Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale. A train ride and small amusement park.

Also check out the Great Arizona Puppet Theater in Phoenix. There will be shows at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday. The theater has a website.

My grand kids loved both of these as well as the Zoo when they were younger.

Definitely the Railroad Park, and the zoo hosts ZooLights as well that starts 11/22, go early as soon as it starts at 6:00pm. My pre-school grandkids love the Phx Children's Museum if you need an indoor activity. If you like ice cream there is the Sugar Bowl in downtown Scottsdale.

All the suggestions here are good. My daughter *loves* the Monkey Village at the zoo. There's also a butterfly experience in Scottsdale that's quite popular called Butterfly Wonderland.
