Where to Find the Easter Bunny in Greater Boston

The Easter Bunny, in the weeks leading up to Easter (on April 5 this year), keeps as busy as Santa in December. We’ve tracked down some of the places in the Boston area where kids can hop on in, dressed in their Easter finest, to meet the Easter Bunny and get their pictures taken, play some games or share a meal with him. Depending on the activity, only professional photographers may be permitted to take pictures, but be sure to bring your camera for great photo ops just in case!

And for more Easter activities, please check out our listing of Easter Egg Hunts in Boston for some ideas.

Weekday Event Picks for LA Kids: Return of the Swallows & St. Pat March 16-20

While our parched region may be praying for more rain, it is pretty apparent that spring has sprung. The asparagus spears are tender; wildflowers bloom, St. Paddy’s Day is here, and Easter is on its way. Celebrate the season of life with egg hunting and nest building in San Juan Capistrano, where the cyclical return of the swallows (who build their nests in the building’s eaves) on St. Joseph’s Day is an annual miracle – and something to experience at least once. Then clean out your closet for SoCal’s largest consignment sale

Special Needs Programs and Classes for All New York City Kids

Some kids take so many extra-curricular activities they barely have time to play, but for other kids, after-school classes can be a challenge. Whether your child has a developmental challenge, delay, disability or disorder, or they just struggle with all things organized, many kids can not partake in a slew of general after-school activities. Luckily, no matter how small or great a child's challenges might be, NYC offers a number of options for children of every ability.

Don't forget to ask about summer and holiday mini-camps. Many of these programs do offer them, too.

See our Special Needs Guide for more ideas, programs and services.

10 Steps to Planning Unforgettable Family Vacations

Great travel is the holy grail of family time: To see the world, expand our horizons, and experience unforgettable adventures together is everything we want our family time to be, all wrapped into one. That’s the dream anyway. The reality is that planning a big trip can be so daunting you want to throw up your hands and just stay at home. It’s no wonder all-inclusive resorts are so popular, just show up and your hardest decisions concern the buffet.

But there’s no substitute for amazing travel with your kids. If you’re like me you want to pack lots of stuff into your days, but not at the expense of having crabby, exhausted kids. There’s no reason to give up hope of doing the things you want or just sticking to vacations at Disneyland. Finding the perfect balance and knowing a few tricks to planning itineraries that optimize your days will help you have better, more adventurous vacations.

It‘s taken me years of practice to figure out how to plan itineraries that keep everyone happy, expose us to new experiences, and still feel enough like a vacation that I don’t need another one once we get home. The heart of my travel planning comes down to knowing how to balance cultural experiences with kid-friendly fun, while making the logistics as seamless as possible. I’ve boiled my technique down to 10 simple steps that anyone can do to have amazing vacations. If I can turn my grumpy kids into world travelers, you can too.
