Free Things to Do with Philly Kids in November

November is a unique month. It begins with a candy hangover thanks to Halloween fun, followed by Election Day (GO VOTE!). Next comes a day to honor those who serve to keep us safe, Veterans Day. It is no coincidence that National Take A Hike Day allows Philly families to burn some extra calories in anticipation for the big turkey feast that is Thanksgiving, later in the month. After Turkey Day, Philly families roll right into holiday fun, filled with lights, parades, and Santa sightings.

Yes, the month of November leads Philly parents into the most expensive time of year. So, be sure to save a few dollars by referencing our handy free fun post. Free museum events, crafting opportunities, storytimes, and educational workshop are sure to entertain the kiddos. Nature lovers have animal encounters to look forward to while music fans can experience free concerts. Build something, hike somewhere, learn something new, all while spending family time together and not spending a dime.
