Sled and Craft Away Winter Blues
Check out prime opportunities to be creative and active in and around Woburn this weekend.
So glad you clicked on our new Grab & Go Kids Planner!
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 the five best family activities or events for the week.
You're time-pressed enough, so we're happy to do the research and find the best things to do and places to go, both locally and within reasonable striking distance.
Look for the kids’ planner each Wednesday, 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!
From arts and crafts, to sledding to animal adventures, we've got you covered for family fun all weekend long.
FAMILY BEST BETS OF THE WEEK
Where/When: Boys and Girls Club, Friday 6 to 7 p.m.
Why Go: Kids can get their hands dirty (in a good way!), combining art and technology to make their own claymation films.
Pricing: Free with membership. For information on how to become a member, see the club’s website.
Why Go: Because kids’ smiles will make you take back all the curse words you emitted while shoveling out your car from this week’s blizzard.
Where/When: Stoneham Arena, Saturday at noon and Sunday at 1 p.m. Advanced session Saturday at 10 a.m.
Why Go: A great way to burn off energy and tap into your more graceful side… you might have a budding Michelle Kwan or Wayne Gretzky on your hands and not even know it.

Where/When: Stoneham Zoo, Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m.- 4 p.m.

Where/When: St. Joseph Catholic Church, Sunday after 8 a.m. mass and 10 a.m. mass
Why Go: Because Chef Boyar-Mom (or Dad) deserves the morning off… what better way to bond than over maple syrup and a short stack (or three)?
