15 Things To Do In Massachusetts With Your Kids During February Break
February break is just around the corner, and we are all running out of things to do with our kids this Winter Season. This list of fun family outings will help you get out of the house and have some much needed adventures.
There are many exhibits to choose from here. One of the most legendary is the “Thunder and Lightning Show.” A lot of elementary schools in the area will take the kids on a field trip here during their electricity unit. If you haven’t taken your child here, you definitely should. Warning: This show can be loud and can be scary for some small children.
This Penguin exhibit is so awesome because it is an open air, 150,000 gallon, salt water habitat. The design of this exhibit allows you to really observe the penguins interacting with each other, and the scientists.
The Discovery Museum is a great place to take your toddlers / elementary age kids. Their slogan is “Science, Nature, Play,” and that pretty much says it all! Each section has a different theme, and materials for your child to explore. From science experiments, to pretend play, there is bound to be something your child is interested in.
This is such a fun family outing. With plenty of exhibits inside, your children will play the day away. If your child likes to build and make things with their hands, this is a great place to go. It may even be fun for you!
