A huge thanks to everyone who joined us for last week’s April Play-cation! Families enjoyed a nature walk, created clay masterpieces, wrote original songs, wove colorful cloth, invented with Legos, and so much more.
Ranger Marieke and young musicians at April Play-cation!
It was a difficult week for the Boston area, but we are so thankful for the strong, creative community of families who attended events. At Lowell National Historical Park, kids participating in the week’s Songwriting Workshops composed and performed songs about friendship, the Lowell community, another song about the awesome city of Lowell, and what makes them happy.
