With all the snow and all the snow days, school vacation week arrives with parents exhausted. And with children having exhausted the usual assortment of winter activities. What to do? Wishing you could visit a warm place without the hassle of airplane travel? Visit gorillas at an indoor tropical forest at the zoo or celebrate Haiti at a museum. Maybe you prefer time travel with a trip to the past for Colonial crafts. Or, looking for something more futuristic? Try a laser show inside a planetarium. Tap into a childs creative side with puppet making and art projects inspired by various exhibits. Watch bedtime stories come to life or dominoes tumble in a mesmerizing cascade. A tough winter is even more reason to turn this week into an escape from the ordinary.
