Legoland Holiday Snow Days

We went to Legoland yesterday and had such a fun time with their new Holiday Snow Days activities there! Legoland California is always a fun place for kids but during the holiday season they create a winter wonderland complete with sledding, ice skating, a snow area and more, it’s so great! Thanks to Legoland for allowing us to participate in a sneak peek of Legoland Holiday Snow Days, and sponsoring this post so we could share our experience with you. Let me show you…….


legoland at christmas time


Legoland Holiday Snow Days events begin on November 22nd, TODAY, and end on January 4th. Right outside the Legoland California entrance they have a real ice rink with skates, helmets, and fantastic “seal helpers” too!

holiday legoland information


My kids had been skating once or twice before but still aren’t fantastic skaters so these seals were great for them! We geared up, each child was given a seal, and they had a blast pushing them around for added stability. For a while they were sitting on them and making their way around the rink, or pushed each other for the 90 min. ice skating session.


ice skating legoland california


After our time was up we headed into their nearby cafe to get some food, and it was fantastic!! The cafe inside had warm soup, drinks, desserts, and individual items you could pick and choose from that were really tasty. The part we really liked the most though was the LARGE play area they had inside the cafe for kids to run off some steam, while we ate and relaxed…love that!! This pirate ship was a play area inside, around, and had loads of legos around it to sit down and create a masterpiece while the parents were able to eat and chat. I seriously wish we had a restaurant like this near our house, it would be Packed! ;)


legoland california


Once we were finished we treated the kids to a special dessert…..S’mores!! YES…..they had a bag of graham crackers, marshmallows, 2 chocolate bars, and long sticks for purchase inside this cafe…..we headed outside!


legoland christmas


During Legoland Holiday Snow Days, they light these fire pits that are located just outside the ice rink. They have staff members there if you need any help, and making sure the children are safe while they are roasting their marshmallows. This was one of their favorite parts of their visit (Mommy got one too, so yummy)!


legoland holiday snow days


Our first stop inside was the Snow!! Born and raised in sunny Southern California, my kids don’t get a chance to experience snow very often so this is a BIG deal!! Just inside Fun Town is a winter wonderland filled with snow to play with and tubing that my kids just couldn’t get enough of! It wasn’t crowded at all so they would slide, tote their tube up to the top again, and slide down this hill over and over and over again. Once we were done we headed to the other side of the tubing area and there was a huge area filled with snow (hence the Lego themed snowman at the top of this post). They had a smaller area with sleds there too to slide down.


legoland christmas


All around the Holiday Snow Days area inside Legoland there were holiday inspired Lego structures like this humungous tree made of Legos! Sooooo cool! It is amazing what they can create using Legos, and since it was their first time, my kids really enjoyed looking at the animals, presents, trees, and other structures inside the park made entirely of Legos!


legoland rides


Of course during Legoland’s Holiday Snow Days event their regular rides are open and we had to ride them too! The Royal Joust was the biggest hit as my kids are HUGE horse lovers! The Sky Cruiser pedal powered car ride was great to get an bird’s eye view of the park, and they got a real kick competing against Daddy on the Kid Power Tower to see who could reach the top first!




Before we headed home we stopped into Legoland California’s creation station area where the kids built Lego cars and raced them against other children who creating masterpieces in there. Great time for hubby and I to rest after a long day of fun. We had such a great time experiencing all that Legoland Holiday Snow Days had to offer. It is unusual in Nov. or Dec. for our California kids to be able to ice skate, build a snowman, or experience snow all in one place….thanks to Legoland California for creating the Holiday Snow Days experience for us to enjoy this year!

Best Leftover Turkey Recipe

I always have a ton of leftover turkey, and usually half of it gets thrown out because we have had enough turkey sandwiches and soup using it.

leftover turkey recipe

This year I came up with this yummy (and super easy) way to make them into little “pockets” that everyone enjoyed! So…if you are looking for the best leftover turkey recipe that is simple you have come to the right place!




You will need:

1. Leftover turkey, cut into small pieces
2. About 1/2 c. mayonnaise
3. About 3/4 c. swiss or mozzarella cheese, cubed
4. Crescent rolls (1 pkg. makes 8 which was enough for the 5 of us)
5. Dill, salt, pepper and thyme to taste (could add dried cranberries too)


easy leftover turkey recipe


All you do is cube the turkey and cheese, add the rest of the ingredients and stir in a bowl. Then lay each crescent roll with the larger part of the triangle inside the muffin tin and the smaller end hanging out. Scoop the mixture inside the muffin cup, and fold the smaller end over the top and tuck it underneath a bit. Bake as directed on the crescent roll container, take out when they are golden brown on the top, and waaallaahhhhh…..they were great!

I also have some great dessert muffin tin ideas here for you to enjoy….I love using muffin tins!!

This performance will be in Ontario at the Citizens Business Bank Arena. It is a small venue. Last year we went to this show and it was a lot of fun. We bought tickets and every seat was really a good one because of it’s small size. Great show for the holiday  season.
