10 Free Things to Do with Boston Kids This Week: Oct 16-20

Free activities with families in Boston this week
The New England Aquarium mobile tide pools come to the Atrium School this week.

There's lots to love about fall—the crisp weather, the beautiful leaves, and, we're finding, a veritable cornucopia of free activities. This week, the challenge isn't finding affordable family entertaining and enrichment, it's choosing among all the no-cost things to do. Our local libraries are featuring hands-on fun of all sorts, from drama to cooking to science. There are tide pools to explore in Watertown and car seat safety lessons to learn in Sharon. And don't miss the annual Frog Pond pumpkin float—the photo ops alone are worth the (free) admission!
