There is only a couple weekends left to do your Christmas shopping. Here is your dilemma, you need to buy some presents for the kids but the kids are with you. What do you do?

The Binghamton Zoo has the answer with the Binghamton Zoo's Holiday Drop and Shop. It's your chance to shop and the kids can have a fun time too.

This and next Saturday (12/9th,12/16th) from 8:30 am to 1:30, you can drop off your 5 through 12 year olds at the Binghamton Zoo’s Education Center for a day of fun. They'll play games indoors and outdoors and make winter crafts.

They’ll even have the chance to go to the Discovery Center and meet some of the Binghamton Zoo’s animals.

Don't forget to dress the kids for the weather and in layers for our indoor activities. Bring a water bottle, an extra pair of shoes and a backpack to hold all of their stuff. Lunch will be provided for all the registered kids.

The Binghamton Zoo's Zoovenirs Gift Shop will also be open for parents to stop by and purchase those wild gifts for the holidays. Gift shop hours will be 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm on both Saturdays.

To register your child or children for the Binghamton Zoo’s Holiday Drop and Shop, go here or call the Education Department at (607) 724-5461 ext. 235.
