Dearborn Public Schools aren't back in session until Jan. 7, so that means a whole two weeks of figuring out how to keep kids entertained.
Here are some local suggestions.
Winterfest activities continue through the break at the Henry Ford Centennial Library. Hosted in the Youth Services Department, the events run Dec. 26-28, plus Jan. 2-4. They include Wii Dance, Yarn Fest, Snowperson Ornaments, Collage Creations, Penguin Play and Origami Corner Bookmarks. There's no registration, but space is limited. Times for the activities vary, so visit the Youth Services Department webpage for more information.
The Henry Ford will be open daily from 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m., including New Year's Eve and Day. Stop by to see the towering LEGO Architecture exhibit, and enjoy the continuation of the Holidays in Henry Ford Museum display, which runs through Jan. 6. Holiday Nights at Greenfield Village is also still open Dec. 26 and 27, and hasn't sold out yet. The event includes live reindeer, caroling, roaring fires and nightly fireworks. Keep the Christmas spirit going and buy tickets on The Henry Ford website.
Watch some basketball as the youth teams of Sacred Heart Catholic School, Divine Child and other schools compete in their annual Christmas Tournament. Games run Dec. 26-30 at Sacred Heart. More information here.
Catch a movie at the AMC Star Fairlane, with daily showings of Monsters, Inc -3D, Parental Guidance, Rise of the Guardians and The Hobbit. Ticket information is available on AMC's website.
Go sledding at Ford Field, since Dearborn is expected to get a fair amount of snow Wednesday. Or, you can always send the kids out to shovel the driveway!
