April vacation will be here before you know it, and if you’re looking for ways to stimulate your kid’s creativity while they’re on break, you’ll have plenty of options. From art classes to gardening to cooking and more, here’s a rundown.
Workshops at the Arts Center
The Arts Center will offer both three-day and single-day programs over April vacation for kids in kindergarten through 5th grade. Kids can make clay mugs or puppets, paint with watercolors, or explore mixed media. Find more information on the Arts Center webstite.
Magic and puppets at the library
The Southborough Library is offering some special events over April vacation. On Tuesday, April 21, Magic Matt will present a new reading-themed magic show at 11:00 am. On Thursday, April 23, Southborough’s own Deborah Costine will present a puppet show called Woodland Cinderella at 1:00 pm. All ages are invited to both shows.
Gardening season is right around the corner, and what better way to get your kids interested than by sending them to gardening camp. Gulbankian’s will offer a 45-minute class each day to kids ages 5 to 12, and you can sign up for as many or as few days as you’d like. Each class will feature a new project like planting flowers or herbs. Kids get to take their project home at the end of class. Classes are $5 each and advanced registration is required.

Kids who like to cook have several options for April vacation. The Culinary Underground is offering a French cooking class on Wendesday, April 22, and a baking class on Friday, April 24. Both are for kids ages 8 to 12. Simply Delicious, a personal chef service in town, is offering a cookie class for kids ages 8 to 14 on Tuesday, April 21.
