Family Fun Activities

Nature Explorers   (Ages 2 – 5 years)
Fridays, April 13 and 27
Meet us at 10:00 a.m. at the Lake Street Parking Lot (Woburn side), Horn Pond, Winchester. 
Registration is not required.

Look for the Family Resource Network banner. As winter leaves and spring begins, we will take opportunities to be outdoors and explore the changes in the seasons. We will bring our magnifying glasses, a story, and some songs. Come explore with us, enjoy the fresh air, build our brains and exercise our bodies. Put your sneakers on, bring a drink and sunscreen. If it is raining, please call (781) 246-5187 to make sure we will be meeting.

Winter StoryWalk® 
It's Winter by Linda Glaser
Saturday, December 23 - Sunday, January 7     

The self-guided walk will begin at Greenwood Park, in Stoneham (across from the Stone Zoo), and will continue along the Crystal Springs Trail in an easy, 1/3-mile loop from dawn to dusk. What a great way to combine literature, exercise, and family fun! Be sure to sign in at the Kiosk near the parking lot.

“It’s Winter” by Linda Glaser combines a cheerfully illustrated song of the praise to winter with a pinch of science. Simple text and bold, beautiful paper sculpture convey the animal and plant life, weather, colors, clothing and feelings associated with the winter season. Laminated pages of the book will be displayed along the trail. Foster your child's connection with nature as well as their literacy skills. 

This is brought to you through a collaboration of the North Suburban Child and Family Resource Network, Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, Medford Family Network, Malden CFCE, The Friends of the Fells, and Mass in Motion.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.
