Weekday Picks for Boston Kids: Peppa Pig, Brunch Class, and Scientific Inspiration; April 24-28

Spring break week might be over, but spring weather—and the crop of cool activities that tend to come with it–has really just arrived. This week, little kids get the spotlight on them at the Boston Children's Museum; and they'll also be thrilled to know that their favorite pig will be coming to town (looking at the forecast, she—and likely you—will be able to splash in some of her beloved mud puddles on show day.) For bigger kids, brunch is on the menu at the latest American Girl cooking class, and scientists will be on hand in Cambridge to explain the super-cool innovations being developed in labs across the country right now. Equally mind-blowing: An interactive "sound sculpture" at the Seaport. On the hunt for even more fun? Study our Event Calendar for more reasons to bust loose of the regular routine this week.
