Director's Column: Fun-filled February Break Activities
We hope you enjoyed Special Visitor’s Day and the special gifts your children prepared for you!
If you are traveling over the February break, have a wonderful trip! If you are spending the next week at home, there is also plenty to do! Here are some of my favorite February Break activities: The Museum of Fine Arts is holding a vacation week program called Artful Animals:
From friendly dogs to wild elephants, the MFA is filled with artful animals during Cogan Family Foundation Vacation Week Adventures. Be inspired by the furry, fluffy, and feathered to create art. Hunt for animals on a family tour. Listen to animal-themed children’s stories and attend a performance. All ages and abilities welcome; children must be accompanied by an adult. No registration required. Free admission for kids all week. https://www.mfa.org/programs/special-event/february-vacation-week Our Science and Nature specialists, Puddlestompers have a great vacation week daily drop-off program running Tuesday-Friday, from 9-1:
Our Vacation Programs will provide active learning opportunities through engaged exploration in your community. Each day we will explore a new themed nature topic through songs, games, and hands-on exploration. Foster your child's love of nature and get them out and exploring with PUDDLESTOMPERS! Ages: 3 - 8 year olds. https://www.puddlestompers.com/newton-vacation-
Last but not least, our Creative Movement coaches are running a vacation week Games Galore program, Tuesday-Thursday, from 9-11:30:
Kids (age 3.5-5.5) will sleep well at night after spending the morning at our Games Galore vacation week session! We will introduce and play lots of traditional/non-traditional sports and games as well as creative movement exercises, parachute games, balls, hula hoops and music throughout each 3-hour day. All games and drills will be age appropriate and are sure to improve skills. This "camp" is a great opportunity to have fun and learn, all while in a “no pressure” and non-competitive environment.
