Things to do with kids in the Philly area on weekends

Looking for some ways to make magical holiday moments with Philly kids this weekend? Our event calendar glistens with lights, Santa encounters, and theatrical performances to get everyone in the spirit of the season.

First, get your wish list ready to share with the jolly ol' elf from the North Pole as he can be found landing at the American Helicopter Museum, along the waterfront at the Independence Seaport Museum, driving a tractor on the farm, and aboard trains located throughout the Delaware Valley. Yeah, that guy gets around...Then, settle into a seat at Delaware Children's Theatre, Upper Darby Performing Arts Center, or Act II Playhouse to see a festive show. Conclude the fun by viewing holiday lights with the animals, near the canal, or at the snack factory.
