Easter, Passover, and Earth Day mean there's lots of fun for kids in Boston this April! Get out those calendars and start saving some dates because April is hopping like the Easter Bunny right before the big day! After you've posed with the Bunny and had your fill of brunches and egg hunts, keep the April fun going and be the first to ride the Swan Boats this season, be dazzled by the lanterns at the Roger Williams Zoo, or tour one of the Greater Boston's National Parks for free. Read on to get the scoop on the events we are most excited about in Boston this month.

April is also the month of spring break, and we've got you covered with our list of 35 things to do over April vacation, as well as 20 spring activities we can't wait to do with kids, and 25 spring day trips from Boston for a quick change of scenery. And don't forget to get booking those summer camps. Slots are going fast for the 2022 season! 

Editor's note: Check with businesses before heading out to events to see if they have any Covid protocols.
