Things to Do During February Break at Boston Children’s Museum

Are you looking for things to do during February Break? You’ve come to the right place! Boston Moms is thrilled to partner with Boston Children’s Museum to bring you information about the Museum’s February offerings for kids of all ages!

Boston Children’s Museum always has a ton of cool and interactive exhibits for children of all ages to enjoy, but their winter fun Snowmazing! Polar Playground is the perfect escape for seasonal themed fun without having to endure the bitter cold New England winter weather during February break.

After college, she married her high school sweetheart and followed him to Charleston, SC, and Groton, CT, where he served as a submarine officer in the United States Navy. Military life was an adventure, and after six crazy years of service (and two babies later!), the pair decided to move *home* to the South Shore in 2016 and put down some roots. Meghan is the proud owner of Boston Moms and work-at-home mom to William, Benjamin, and Caroline, born in 2013, 2015 and 2019. She loves meeting new people, encouraging moms, celebrating motherhood, and supporting small businesses.
