Explore & More offers kids’ activities during Christmas break

Christmas is over and kids already may be starting to get restless, some may have eaten too much holiday candy and there is at least another week of vacation.

What is a parent to do?

For the younger children, at least, Explore & More Children’s Museum is offering family activities for the next several days, during the school break week.

The Family Fun Week celebrates the installation of a new Incredible Milking Cow exhibit, a prototype for the Farm to Fork educational play zone that will be built in the new museum at Canalside.
