Cultivate Your Child's Interests

Let your child take a science class or enjoy some hands-on aviation activities. Teens will enjoy the chance to create their own handmade journal.

We've assembled a weekly calendar of kid-friendly activities and new places to try out with children. Each week, we'll give you the info on some of best family activities or events for the week.

We know you're busy, so we're happy to do the research and find the best things to do and places to go, both locally and within reasonable driving distance.

Look for the kids’ planner each week, and help us build the planner with your own suggestions and tips—just add them to the comment box. Even if you disagree with our picks, let us know. We want to hear from you.
