February Vacation Mega-Roundup

peabody-mexican-flag.jpgIf you haven't figured out what you're doing with the kids this week, fear not, I have curated a mega-roundup of places that are offering special February vacation week programming! Meanwhile, if you're at home with the kids I recommend this peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe (it's easy enough for kids to make while you check in on your work e-mails...) and these six ideas for outdoor fun for next to nothing. Also, if you're taking a trip to the library or bookstore, bring this list of books for strong and smart girls. Happy vacation week!
