Weekday Picks for Boston Kids, July 18-22: Sand Sculpting, Singing, and Shakespeare Submitted by Tara D on Sun, 07/17/2016 - 2:00pm From Shakespeare to sand sculptures to story time at the park, the city is humming with awesome activities for families this week. Of course, there's nothing wrong with wanting to get out of the city and the sun for a few hours, which is why we have the lowdown on children's museums outside of Boston. And we think there's no better time of year for a short jaunt to Salem or a few days on Lake Winnipesaukee—as long as we're back by Friday to see the spectacular sand sculpting at Revere Beach. In addition to our weekday picks below, we have an Event Calendar loaded with fun things to do. We recommend checking it out. Enjoy your adventures with your kids this week, no matter how near or far they take you. And remember, the laundry can wait another day. Read more.
