No matter what Punxsutawney Phil said, there is no doubt about it. According to the calendar, it's the first official weekend of spring in the Delaware Valley. Welcome it with some great family activities found in our events calendar.
With spring's arrival, Philly families can find many opportunities to get outdoors. Those who enjoy fishing can cast a line at Norristown Farm Park or Linvilla Orchards. Animal lovers can construct a bird house for bluebirds or meet a whitetail deer named Max. Other interesting activities include creating paper kites from recyclable materials at Wissahickon Environmental Center or trying archery at Warwick County Park.
Museums also offer engaging experiences. National Constitution Center recognizes Women's History Month with exhibits, displays, and an educational music video workshop inspired by Lady Gaga while Please Touch Museum celebrates the Hindu spring festival known as Holi. Kids visiting the Museum can expect to see traditional Indian dancers, henna art, and a confetti color throwing party.
