Things To Do in Philly this Weekend: Maple Syrup, LEGOs, Museums March 7-8
Many Philly families dread losing a precious hour of time as the clocks spring forward this weekend. With sixty minutes less, parents and kids alike must make every moment count. Thankfully, our event calendar is filled with options for everyone.
Start off by waking up to delicious maple syrup at Peace Valley Nature Center, Fox Chase Farms, or Washington Crossing State Park. Once fortified, head to the Academy of Natural Sciences for its annual Paleopalooza which features fossil hunts, guided tours, and presentations on all things prehistoric. Lego lovers can take a ride to the Copeland Maritime Center in Wilmington for LEGO Shipbuilding Day and fans of Harry Potter can participate in a themed scavenger hunt at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Those wanting to see a show can grab seats for Footloose, the Musical! at Upper Darby Performing Arts Center. Families celebrating Purim can see a children's performance, participate in games, and get faces painted at Kaiserman JCC's Community Purim Carnival.
We aren't just losing an hour. We are gaining daylight as spring draws near. So be sure to get the kids outfitted for the new season by checking out our Spring Consignment Post that is constantly updated with new sales. Make your weekend special with our top picks below.
