Best Sledding Hills and Slopes on Boston's North Shore

When it snows, we love to slip and slide the afternoon away. It's always a lot of fun, and it's a great way to get out and explore some new places. Local parks, golf courses, schoolyards, libraries, parks and even the backs and sides of buildings. If it doesn't make sense to drive around in the car, break out the shovels and start making your own hill by forming huge pile of snow in your own yard!

"Over the course of Brookwood's 55-plus year history we've learned that a confident child is a successful learner and successful learners are successful in life. And we know this is a question of balance -- balancing rigor with compassion, excellence with exuberance, and self-discovery with sensitivity to others."


Alastair Moock brings folk music for kids to the Cabot Theater in Beverly!

Nearly twenty years into his performing career, 2014 Grammy-nominated musician Alastair Moock has managed to carve out a unique niche for himself: He is a songwriter committed to celebrating the roots of American music while knocking down the walls between different audiences, genres and musical traditions. Today, his audiences range from adults all the way down to preschoolers, and he plays everything from nightclubs to theaters to schoolrooms. Like his boyhood hero, Woody Guthrie, Moock believes in the power of music to reach all people — young and old, far and wide, for all occasions. 


Paper snowflakes are one example of kirgami

Manchester Public Library invites kids and adults to an afternoon of Kirgami with Miss Sara!  Kirigami is the Japanese art of cutting paper, named from the words 'kiru' (to cut) and 'kami' (paper). Symmetry or balance is a very important concept in Kirigami. Snowflakes, pentagrams, and flowers are all examples of Kirigami projects in which cuts are made to enhance the symmetry of the design.
