What to do with the kids this weekend: Friday, February 22 – Sunday, February 24, 2019




Saturday, February 23:

It’s family outdoor adventure day from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. at the Tidmarsh Wildlife Sanctuary in Plymouth. Great for kids 4 – 7 years old, you’ll take to the trails with the sanctuary staff and discover something new about nature. You may read a story, make a craft or sing songs, but you will always explore the outdoors and have fun! No day will be the same so be sure to check out the family adventure days on the last Saturday of each month. Cost is $5 for kid members and $7 for kid non-members – adults admitted for free. https://www.massaudubon.org/program-catalog/tidmarsh/64135-family-outdoor-adventure-days


The Plymouth Center for the Arts invites you to Puzzle Palooza today from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Come to visit, meet artisans, have coffee and cocoa and join in the puzzling fun with Dashing Dan the Puzzle Man! https://plymouthguild.org/events/other/february-23rd


The Hingham Public Library has a wonderful opportunity for your new(ish) reader to gain comfort and experience reading: it’s their read to a dog program! Saturday from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. you can book your 15 minute reading sessions through the children’s department by calling 781.741.1405 x1403 or sending an email to hijuv@ocln.org. Reading to a trained therapy dog helps develop literacy skills and builds confidence and self-esteem. This program is great for kids ages 5 and older.
