Things to do with families in Boston this weekend

Holiday excitement is winding down as is school vacation week, but why not close out 2018 with a bang? Dance your heart out at a family concert or hear the Boston Pops play a live musical score while you take in (kid-fave) Home Alone. For more low key options, how about some crafting (not one but two options) or learning stop animation? Kids and adults can also get on the court and try a new sport (for free!)

Our weekend picks don't end with Sunday: Be sure to check out our ideas for indoor and outdoor family fun on New Year's Eve Monday, as well as free, guided family hikes (north and south of town) and a patriotic flag raising parade on New Year's Day. Here's to a happy and bright 2019!
