A list of family friendly ideas.

Need a few ideas of what to do with your kids over school vacation? We have compiled a list to help you out!

Get Outside!

- Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth, especially the new Children's Garden

- Gilsland Farm Audubon Center in Falmouth - They have ongoing events almost every day that includes Signs of Spring + Bird Walks.

- Maine Audubon has locations all across the state with great things to do outside

- Wolfe's Neck Farm in Freeport - Become a farmer for a day, learn how to milk a cow, explore the working farm, or maybe grab an ice cream

- Want to see the most beautiful plants living among chickens + even a peacock? Head to Snug Harbor Farm in Kennebunk! Perfect for kids + parents alike.

- Mackworth Island in Falmouth has everything from beaches to the woods, fairy houses to fields. You could spend an hour or an entire day here. Pack a picnic + you are good to go.

- East End Playground in Portland - the playground with the best view.

- Deering Oaks Park - complete with a playground + water pad.

Children's Museum of Maine

Inside Spaces!

- Greenlight Studio is a playspace where kids can let their imagination run wild + play all day.

- Children's Museum + Theater is always a good time. Explore a fire truck, a lobster boat, a market, even a car repair shop. Visit their theater for shows like the Little Mermaid!

- Public libraries - Portland's has a space for kids + South Portland's is full of events during vacations to keep kids + families busy all week long.

- Swimming at the Y + other indoor public pools is a great way to get out some extra energy. It is such a treat when it is a little too cold to swim outside.

- The Yard at the Mill in Biddeford is an indoor playground for year-round play for kids under 10.

- The Portland Science Center located right on the water is a great way to learn about our world. The exhibits have ranged from the human body to dinosaurs!

These are just a few of the places we love to spend time with kids around Maine. Let us know what your family loves to do too!
