If you live near Boston and have curious kids, you've probably made lots of memories at the Museum of Science already. And while it would be absurd to say a life-size T-Rex and simulated lightning get old, exactly, it takes something new to galvanize us to return to Science Park on a busy weekend in wintertime. After a Saturday afternoon, I can say that the new temporary exhibit, is worth a return—or, if you have never been, a first—trip.

There's some messy weather in the forecast, so it will be tempting to hang at home when there isn't someplace you need to be this week. But with a wintry mix of exciting hockey, Snow Queen appearances, a princess ball, and more on the horizon too, there's sure to be some event to challenge your hibernating instincts. I'm hoping to venture to the Children's Science Discovery Museum in Acton, where kids will be encouraged to take the concept of "homemade" valentines to a whole new level on Wednesday by crafting their own paper from recycled paper pulp. If you're looking for more activities, mark down (with a red crayon, of course), one of these events from our Valentine's Day lineup. Those cute cards aren't going to decorate themselves.
We New Englanders do what we can to survive the bleakest month of the year, so it's apt that we kick off February with lots of laughs (at a silly storytime) and some fantastical fun (at lightsaber lessons). Hopefully, Punxsutawney Phil will steer clear of his shadow this Groundhog's Day, giving us hope for an early spring; get the scoop at the Children's Museum of Easton on Wednesday. Plus, our Event Calendar is packed with more cozy storytimes and interesting exhibits this week, so take a look for more ideas each day.
