Exploring Hulopoe Tide Pools -- An entire world of marine life lives in the tide pools on the eastern side of Hulopoe Bay. Everything in the water, including the tiny fish, is small -- kid size. After examining the wonders of the tide pool, check out the larger swimming holes in the lava rock, perfect for children.

Hunting for Petroglyphs -- The Luahiwa Petroglyph Field, located just outside Lanai City, is spread out over a 3-acre site. Make it a game: Whoever finds the most petroglyphs gets ice cream from the Pine Isle Market.

Listening to Storytellers -- Check with the Lanai Library, on Fraser Avenue near Fifth Street, in Lanai City (tel. 808/565-7920; https://www.librarieshawaii.org/branch/lanai-public-and-school-library), to see if any storytelling or other children's activities are scheduled. The events are usually free and open to everyone. Storytelling is usually held on Friday at 10am with Aunty Chelsea, but call ahead.
