Our Guide to Staying Local with the Kids This Year

Some of you may be headed for warmer weather during next week’s school vacation, but for those of you who would rather enjoy a stay-cation, there are many activities for you and your kids right here on the Cape.

Can’t wait for all of the sharks to return? From Monday, April 15 through Friday, April 19 from 12:30-2:00 pm the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster will present a Shark Arts and Science program. Museum staff will share shark facts and information, and kids can create their own sharks using a different artistic medium every day.

Feeling creative? The Cape Cod Maritime Museum in Hyannis is providing your vacationers with the chance to build a scallop shell chime on Wednesday, April 17 from 11 am-3 pm. Children can bring in their own collection of shells and driftwood or the museum can provide you with some.

Want to head outdoors? On Thursday, April 18 the Burgess Museum in Sandwich is hosting a Springtime Canoe Paddle on Shawme Pond where you are bound to see plenty of wildlife.

Or maybe it’s time for your kids to learn a second language? Hola Spanish for Kids is hosting a camp at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Church in Falmouth April 16-19 every day from 9 am-12:30 pm.

The weather is supposed to warm up next week, just in time for all of the local ice cream shops to open their doors, from Katie‘s Ice Cream in Hyannis, to Krista K’s in West Dennis and Ben & Jerry‘s in Eastham. Pick up a cone or a cup, grab a kite at your local toy store and head to one of the Cape’s many beaches to enjoy the sun.
