    The 200th Birthday Party for Darwin at Hope Artiste Village on Sunday (the 15th) sounds like unique fun–you have to be “invited” and RSVP to go though. (Invite information though charliesplayhouse.com)

    I’d love an A-list for the February Vacation Week–it’s really hard to choose.

    You can be “invited” by just calling to get details.

    My A-List recommendation: Plan to visit at least one new venue (library, museum, nature center, etc.) over vacation break. It can be a daytrip or mini morning excursion — either way it will feel like an adventure for your kids. Even if you spend the rest of the vacation doing your usual routine.

    I agree lots to choose from – if you are super organized make each day a theme, nature, music, theater, sports, etc. and find activities or places that suit the theme of the day.

    And please tell us about the places you visit. Use the new resource directory to share your reviews and rate the venues!

    We love the Harvard Museum of Natural History. Don’t forget your AAA discount. Cupcakes at Sweet on Mass. Ave after and call it a great day. I have 3-5-7 year olds who all loved it.
