Weekday Picks for Philly Kids: Museums, Stories, Indoor Fun Feb 15-19

The chill of February can keep Philly families indoors. But it doesn't have to keep kids at home! Put on your coats, gloves, and hats to venture off to some wonderful and educational opportunities this week.

Listen to stories at Smith Playhouse, Neshaminy Mall's Barnes & Noble, or Bucks County Children's Museum. Learn about the anatomy of the heart at the Franklin Institute. If you have a budding artist, consider stopping by Exton Mall for its Mommy and Me session presented by Chester County Arts Association or Springfield Mall's Kids Crew featuring Community Arts Center of Wallingford.

Keep up with Mommy Poppins Philly by connecting with us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter which is delivered on Mondays and Thursdays. No matter how you spend this week, make it a great one!
