Boston Activities to do with the Kids During School Vacation

February 20, 2017

Happy School Vacation week Massachusetts! Parents, we can imagine your kids are psyched for some time off and that you’re scrambling to find stuff to fill their free time with. If you’re turning this school vacation into a staycation with the family, we have some suggestions for how you can fill your children’s week with activities they’ll love. 

Ice Skating in Kendall Square. Ice Skating at Kendall is the perfect spot for some family fun. You can rent skates right at the rink and take lessons! Not to mention, K2 Café is offering free hot chocolate for kids February 20-24 with your ice skating receipt. Looking for a lunch option? Try Glass House, with children’s menu offerings such as chicken fingers, grilled cheese, kid’s pizza and more! Check out more information on Ice Skate at Kendall here.

Disney on Ice. We’re sensing a theme here ….. :) TD Garden has been invaded by Disney until February 26 and it’s a show you can’t miss. Be sure to stop by The Harp before or after a show for a quick bite with the family. Check out our kid’s menu here.
