Best Local Holiday Gift Idea for Kids

Santa’s making his list and checking it twice! Has your kid been nice all year? If they have been the model child and have a thirst for knowledge and being outdoors, look into getting them an annual membership at Beaver Creek Reserve (S1 County Hwy. K, Fall Creek). If a snow day and snowshoeing isn’t possible, The Children’s Museum of Eau Claire (126 N. Barstow St., Eau Claire) is always a highlight for indoor learning for kids of all ages. And while learning is great for kids, it’s equally important for them to cut loose and have fun! An annual pass to Action City (2402 Lorch Ave., Eau Claire) should get their energy out before Santa lands on your roof!  –Sheng Yang
