At Kidadl we pride ourselves on offering families original ideas to make the most of time spent together at home or out and about, wherever you are in the world. We strive to recommend the very best things that are suggested by our community and are things we would do ourselves - our aim is to be the trusted friend to parents.
We try our very best, but cannot guarantee perfection. We will always aim to give you accurate information at the date of publication - however, information does change, so it’s important you do your own research, double-check and make the decision that is right for your family.
Kidadl provides inspiration to entertain and educate your children. We recognise that not all activities and ideas are appropriate and suitable for all children and families or in all circumstances. Our recommended activities are based on age but these are a guide. We recommend that these ideas are used as inspiration, that ideas are undertaken with appropriate adult supervision, and that each adult uses their own discretion and knowledge of their children to consider the safety and suitability.
Kidadl cannot accept liability for the execution of these ideas, and parental supervision is advised at all times, as safety is paramount. Anyone using the information provided by Kidadl does so at their own risk and we can not accept liability if things go wrong.
Kentucky is a colorful state located in southeastern America.
Kentucky is bordered toward the north by Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio, toward the east by Virginia and West Virginia, to the south by Tennessee, and to the west by Missouri. Kentucky gets its name from a Native American language, although there are a few alternative interpretations of what it means.
One common theory is that it is derived from the Iroquois term 'ken-tah-ten', which means 'land of tomorrow'. The Ohio River forms the Commonwealth's northern boundary. Frankfort is the state capital, while Louisville and Lexington are two major cities, and these two cities, as well as a city called Bowling Green, are three of the largest cities in the state. Seven states surround the Commonwealth. On June 1, 1792, Kentucky was admitted to the Union as the 15th state, separating in the process from Virginia. This great state is known to be the 'Bluegrass State', a moniker derived from Kentucky bluegrass, a grass species found in many of the state's pastures and which has aided the thoroughbred horse industry in the central region. Because of this bluegrass, Kentucky has a long history of having good agricultural conditions and natural resources and is called a bluegrass region.
Kentucky is ranked fifth in goat farming, eighth in beef cattle output, and 14th in maize production in the United States. Kentucky has also been a key hub of the tobacco business for a long time. Kentucky's economy has grown to include non-agricultural industries such as car manufacturing, energy fuel generation, and medical institutions. Kentucky is the 37th largest state in terms of land area, with 39,490 sq mi (102,278 sq km). Kentucky's population is 4,509,342 people, according to the most recent U.S. Census Bureau figures. Kentucky became the first U.S. state west of the Appalachian Mountains when it was awarded statehood in 1792. The Jackson Purchase, which was annexed to Kentucky in 1818 and included lowlands with ponds, lakes, and marshes, is located in the far west.
The prehistory and history of Kentucky state go back thousands of years, and the state's varied topography and central position have shaped it.
The Commonwealth of Kentucky has multiple nicknames including the Bluegrass State, the Tobacco State, the Rock-Ribbed State, and the Hemp State.
Kentucky is home to a number of world-famous people who were born and raised there.
Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), horse racing, bluegrass music, coal, and college basketball are all famous things from Kentucky.
