Above: During winter vacation, your children can see Frozen on a big screen for free or pr-register for the movie day with lunch and games – setting you free.

If you’re going to be home with kids over Winter Break this year, you’ll be happy to know that there are programs available after Christmas.

To start, here are the offerings that Southborough Recreation has planned. They range from free drop-in fun to pre-registered 2-day workshops.

Stay tuned for other events/activities in town.

Model Building –  Airplanes, Bridges, and Electronic Gadgets – Ages 7 to 12 – $140/pp
Register by December 19
December 29 and December 30, 9:00 am -4:30 pm

Build your own rubber-powered model airplane. Use your model as a learning tool in aerospace education, or just have fun building a sound airplane that actually flies when assembled. Have fun designing and building model bridges. Join us in our bridge building contest to see which one can hold the most weight. Learn simple engineering skills. Build 6 electronic projects. Some of them include a patrol car siren, burglar alarm and morse code transmitter. You will learn how the different electronic components work. Bring a little imagination and get ready to “Fly with Sciensational Workshops.”

Can I still sign up my son and his friend for coed dodgeball on 12/29/14?

Online registration closed on the 23rd. The site shows there were 2 slots left. So, it doesn’t hurt to call the Rec Dept to ask. But they are closed until 9am on Monday – 1 hour before tournament starts. Their number is 508-229-4452.
