Things to do with families in Boston this weekend

While I always find myself dreading cold, dark January during the fun, busy fall months, by the time it rolls around I am filled with excitement for the new year. January seems like the perfect time to try new things, and luckily Boston is full of unique experiences for kids and families. Budding chefs can try a hand at a popular Italian dish, or how about some biscuits, butter, and jam? Parents and children can slow down with yoga or learn all about animal tracking in the wilderness. No need to go to the waterfront when the aquarium can bring sea life to you. Animal lovers can also get up close and personal with backyard birds
