1. Free Family Acitivites, Sunday afternoons at Worcester Art Museum
From the Worcester Art Museum’s Facebook page:
In honor of WAM’s FREE SUMMER in JULY + AUGUST, WAM is offering FREE family activities at WAM from 1-3pm every Sunday through August. This Sunday, join a WAM faculty member for a drop-in cartooning workshop in the Lancaster Lobby. All ages are welcome. What are you going to draw?
(I am so excited about this. In the immortal words of Montell Jordan, this is how we do it.)
2. Free and Cheap Movies for Kids
Showcase Cinemas shows a free kids movie every Wednesday (where the price of admission is a book report).
Regal (which operates the cinemas in Marlboro and Bellingham) shows $1 kids movies on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
