The preliminary weather reports are calling for temperatures in the 20s this weekend, so bundle up the kids and get outside for some seasonal activities! For starters, there is the annual party to open the night ski season at Mohawk Ski Area. Or learn to identify animals by their tracks during a wintertime walk in the woods (no snow required). Do you know what an Owl Moon is? You can find that out too. If you'd prefer to stay warm indoors, check out the Magic of Harry Potter in Hartford, or create a piece of experimental art in New Canaan.
