What to do on Winter Break: Family Fun & Free Events
Monday, December 30, 2013
The presents are opened, the wrapping discarded, there are new toys, new clothes, and tasty leftovers galore. But somehow, once the dust settles, a too-familiar carol rises to the hilltops-"I'm borrred," they sing. And so it begins.
Don't worry, parents, we're here for you. Visit our guide to New Hampshire museums and galleries by region. The museum guides provide a short description and a link to each museum's website. Take advantage of the Children's Museum of New Hampshire's Dollar Deal Night on Friday January 3rd; families are welcome to play and learn together at just $1 per person on the first Friday night of each month during the school year.
A visit to the local library is always a good idea during Winter Break. Most offer free daytime activities for children of all ages. The Concord Public Library offers a PlaySpace, with a hands-on area offering activities for young children and their caregivers to develop the skills children need to get ready to read.
Visit our Snow Fun Page for New Hampshire sledding hill locations and reviews, information on ice skating, sleigh rides, and skiing, winter recipes, events and more! And if you're looking for some family fun that won't break the bank, visit our Free Things To Do Page for playground, park, and free New Hampshire event information. As always, check our calendar at NHEvents.com for free and featured events. There is always something to do in New Hampshire!
