Buy One Get One Free Knoxville Zoo Admission + Warm Weekend Weather= Frugal Family Fun


Looks like the weekend weather is going to be warm!


If you are tired of being cooped up after all the snow and cold weather you may want to head to the zoo! The Knoxville Zoo is offering “Buy One, Get One Free” admission tickets  through Feb. 29, 2016, during Kroger BOGO Days. Plus, kids under four are Free!

“It may come as a bit of a surprise to our guests, but winter is a great time to visit the zoo,” said Lisa New, President and CEO of Knoxville Zoo.  “We’re lucky to have many days of mild weather, and most of our animals enjoy being out and active on those days.  Our red pandas and river otters are especially lively this time of year.”

On days when the temperature drops below 40 degrees, some animals will be moved indoors, but visitors can still see many favorites, including elephants, gorillas, penguins, chimpanzees and reptiles, in their indoor viewing areas.

Half-price admission tickets can be purchased at the zoo ticket window during regular zoo hours and online here.  Discounted admission tickets must be used by Feb. 29, 2016, and cannot be combined with any other promotion, discount, or coupon.

So, the last two weeks have been crazy around here. I am sure they have been for you too. I was not prepared for all the parties, events, gifts and end of semester tests/projects that come along with three in public school. Whew. I was SO glad when Friday came. But now, they are all home….. :) It is fun, but I am already seeing we are going to need some activities and a little bit of a schedule.


We had Christmas with part of our family last night and one of the boys got this Ready, Set, Paste! set. So I love it. He used it last night and all four of the boys have been playing with it this morning. I love it. Lots of cute creations, no cutting mess and enough room to be creative. There are 9 projects, each individually bagged. It is “cool,creative, craft mom” in a box for just $7.26 shipped. This will ship free for Prime members, Free One Day actually! So this would be a great gift for a creative kid in your life or for Christmas break activities.
