Weekday Picks for Philly Kids: Theater, Nature, Stories Jan 11-15

The month of January can be grey and dull. But, it certainly doesn't have to be. Make it lively and exciting by filling your week with activities found in our Events Calendar.

This week, children can stay busy by learning about movement, taking in a theater production, or discovering interesting facts about owls. Or, take baby to a movie at Bryn Mawr Film Institute or bring the older kids to Bartram's Gardens for its Homeschooler Day.

To keep up with new events that are constantly added to our listing, be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Pinterest, Twitter, and Instagram. Make it a great week!
