What to do with the kids this long Martin Luther King weekend
We know come Monday, you might be running out of ideas of how to keep the kids busy this long weekend. The weather is going to be much more seasonal with lows in the 30s and highs in the 50s.
If you don't find something on this list, head to your favorite museum, your local library (except on Monday) or your favorite playground to keep them busy and away from screens.
