Things to Do in Philly this Weekend and Beyond: Outdoor Adventures, Storytimes, Museums
As another weekend approaches, Phillly parents might be searching for ways to differentiate weekdays from Saturday and Sunday. After all, many of us are still schooling and working from home and the routine can become boring. Why not find some fun in our events calendar?
If you like being outdoors, there are plenty of places to explore. Take a self-guided tour of Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education and be sure to pick up an exploration kit at the visitors center. Look for signs of wildlife on the grounds of Fort Mifflin. Or, take a winter hike at one of these recently highlighted locations in the area.
A few storytime sessions made our top picks this week. Little ones can check out History Heroes Storytime at Winterthur or listen to stories in Dilworth Park's Wintergarden. Older kids can enjoy a visit to Penn Museum for its newest exhibit titled Invisible Beauty: The Art of Archaeological Science. Everyone in the family can climb aboard the Snowflake Special at Colebrookdale Railroad or get creative during a family painting session.
Prefer to stay home? Remember to check out Poppins@Home. Philly teens can learn how to make healthy lunches while young ones can play some Minecraft, or explore science. Kids can also get the wiggles out with a dance lesson or movement session. With this lineup, kids are sure to feel as if t's the weekend! Read on for additional ideas on how to make the most of yours.
As COVID circumstances unfold, check directly with a venue website for updates before heading out. Keep your family and others safe by wearing masks and maintaining social distancing measures.
