It's hard to believe that February is closing in upon us. The month is ending on a theatrical note as stages across Connecticut will light up with family-friendly performances. If, however, you'd rather skip the curtain call, head to the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford for the latest exhibit: Leonardo da Vinci: Machines in Motion. Children will enjoy seeing 40-life sized machines that they can touch and set into motion, and even better, they can design their own flying machines during the Da Vinci-inspired Youth Workshop (advanced registration required).
It will be party time in New London, where you can take the entire family (families represented by three generations will be included in a special drawing for prizes) to the 2016 Sock Hop Dance, or the 15th Annual Cat in the Hat Ball. You can also keep things simple by sitting back and savoring a delicious meal at the 5th Annual Maple Sugaring and Pancake Breakfast in Bristol, or at the Pancake Breakfast and Maple Sugaring event at the 4-H Education Center at Auerfarm in Bloomfield.
Whatever you decide to do, have a beautiful weekend and remember to check our Event Calendar for the latest family-friendly events. We also invite you to follow Mommy Poppins Connecticut on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, and to subscribe to our newsletters.
