Weekday Picks for Philly Kids: Nature, Stories, Vacations May 23-27

It is hard to believe that this is the last week before the unofficial start of Summer 2016. Savor these moments of springtime bliss by embracing some of the many activities found in our Events Calendar.

This week, there are a variety of opportunities for outdoor play. Visit Tyler Arboretum for Tyler Tales, Briar Bush Nature Center for Magic Mornings or Bucktoe Creek Preserve for Drop-In on Nature Playgroup. Or, consider visiting a local county park. Then, listen to stories at Barnes and Nobles, Delaware Museum of Natural History or Philadelphia's Central Library.

However, if you are just realizing that you still need to plan your family's summer vacation, browse through our entire Mommy Poppins site. It offers a wealth of information on New York City, Long Island, Westchester NY, Boston, Connecticut, Los Angeles and even our neighbor to the east, New Jersey. Also, be sure to complete our Mommy Poppins survey to enter to win a family trip to Punta Cana. Vacation time is just around the corner!
