Free Holiday Break Kids’ Activities

Sooooo….in our district there’s a full week off for Thanksgiving and roughly two and a half weeks off for winter break. That’s a loooooot of time to fill. If you’re in my neck of the woods here’s some totally free events being offered through the Park District, library, and village. Most events are drop in, but a couple like ‘Noon Year’s Eve’ and paint and sip require pre-registration. I’ve included hyperlinks to the events which will tell you times and locations as well as take you to the sight for pre-registration.
