Finding ways to keep the young ones busy during their time off from school can sometimes be challenging, especially when the weather is frightful and playing outside is not an option.

But The Strong Museum is offering a few activities to occupy young minds.

On Saturday February 2 Clifford the Big Red Dog is stopping by The Strong for Clifford’s Valentine Fun. From 11am to 4pm visitors can take photos with Clifford, enjoy story time including a reading of “Clifford’s Valentine”, play games, and perform the Valentine Hop.


For the winter break February 16 to 24, Doc McStuffins has an exhibit to offer that will help young visitors learn some healthy habits and spend some time with Doc McStuffins in her backyard “clinic”.
