Weekday Picks for Philly Kids: MLK Jr., Museums, Nature Jan 18-22

Whether you have off on Monday, or it is just another typical week in January, our Events Calendar is ready to provide many ideas on what to do with the kids. This week, Longwood Gardens hosts its annual OrKid Day, which is filled with discovery stations and children's activities. Many local museums offer free or discounted admission in honor of Martin Luther King Day, such as National Liberty Museum, National Museum of American Jewish History, and African American Museum in Philadelphia. And, outdoorsy types can find nature hikes and animal experiences this week as well.

Be sure to plan out all your winter fun with the help of our recently published 25 Things We Want to Do with Philly Kids This Winter post and our Ski & Snow Sport Guide. Stay connected to Mommy Poppins Philly on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Instagram. Enjoy the week ahead!
