Weekday Picks for Boston Kids: Supermoon and Monster Black Holes, Nov 14 - 18

Our top picks for activities with kids in Boston each weekday

This week's event picks offer meaningful, low-key ways to inspire and connect with our kids, starting with the Supermoon and wrapping up the weekdays with an uplifting play. For more family fun every day, check our Event Calendar.

It's the last week to help us choose our Besties. You could win amazing prizes from the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Great Wolf Lodge, and Puerto Vallarta just for showing the love for your favorite family-friendly spots in Boston.

Wishing you a week filled with kindness and wonder.

Wake the kids up super early to see the Supermoon. According to NASA, this moon will be at its biggest and brightest for viewers in the United States just before dawn, and we won't see a moon like this again until 2034 (all ages; FREE).

Storytime at the Mary Baker Eddy Library only happens once a month, so we're seizing the opportunity to check it out. Apparently, Mary was quite a bookworm. That's something a lot of Boston kids can relate to (ages 5 and under; FREE).
