Timberline Country Christmas

Your adventures start with a wander through community-decorated Christmas trees. Our boys had fun picking their favourite tree and casting their vote. In addition to the trees, have a peak under the wooden door flaps which teach a little bit about the origins of Christmas.

Timberline Country ChristmasThe next stop on your journey is the bakery. Everyone is given a sugar cookie, icing and candy to create a snowman face. Our 5 year old tried to eat his cookie from the top down as he was most eager to gobble off the candy corn nose. He was a gleeful but sticky mess.

Covered wagon at Timberline RanchEvery 15 minutes a covered wagon decorated with Christmas lights takes visitors from the main farm building up to the animal barn. Three fun activities await the kids: pony rides, a petting zoo (with the fluffiest and cleanest farm animals I’ve ever experienced), and a hay bale maze. After the kids have exhausted themselves in the barn, hop on the covered wagon and head back to the main buildings for crafts, story time, ornament-making, and a cafe for snacks. Please note that pony rides are $5 and must be booked in advance.

Snowville at Timberline Country ChristmasWithout a doubt, the highlight of our kids’ visit was Snowville, aka the snowball throwing room. What a brilliant idea! Timberline Ranch turned one of the rooms in their big lodge into a winter scene. Dozens of white plastic balls are in easy reach and the kids get to throw snowballs until they are exhausted. Snowflakes, plush teddy bears, Christmas wreaths and more make fun holiday-themed targets. Truly our kids would have happily thrown snowballs for hours.
