Five Fun & Educational Things to Do During School Vacation Week in NH
The majority of New Hampshire schools will be out this coming week: what to do to keep the little (and not so little) ones entertained and maybe learn a thing or two at the same time? We've got you covered!
Visit the Seacoast Science Center
The Seacoast Science Center in Rye provides an array of hands-on activities for kids and adults both. If your kids are in grades 5-8, consider some of the day camps the center is offering. There are Treks 4 Tots for the younger ones and Seaside Safaris for the older kids.
Have a Blast at the Children's Museum of New Hampshire
This is my family's go-to on any rainy day, but is a great take in any weather. There are loads of hand-on exhibits for all ages that cycle through at The Children's Museum of New Hampshire in Dover. For vacation week, the museum is also offering a World Wonders Art Camp for ages 6-11
Ride the Cog Railway
This weekend marks the start of the season for the Cog Railway! For the first time after a long winter, the Cog Railway will be open to visitors seeking to ride to the top of Mount Washington. Tickets include admission to the Weather Discovery Center at the Mount Washington Observatory. The railway will also be open next weekend as well.
Get Creative at the Currier Museum of Art
I sometimes feel like people forget that there is a world class museum in the heart of Manchester. If you've always intended to visit the Currier Museum of Art, let this be the week you finally make it happen. New Hampshire residents get free admission on Saturdays from 10am-noon! They're also offering several programs for kids throughout the week.
Join us at Kidabaloo!
By now, I trust you've heard about Kidabaloo at the Dover Ice Arena on Saturday from 1pm-5pm. In addition to meeting the likes of Amber Montana from Nickelodeon's The Haunted Hathaways and checking out bouncy houses, we've squeezed in some educational fun as well!
