Boulder Family Events: December 21 to December 27, 2012


Welcome to a slow week here for families in Boulder.

What to do outdoors: hit the sledding hills, check out the train table at Barnes and Noble, head to your favorite coffee shop with your kids for some hot cocoa or cider and a chat, walk around Pearl Street and climb on the rocks or just check out the beautiful decorations, check out the

Denver Zoo Lights.

What to do indoors: WOW! Children’s Museum, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, snuggle up at home with some books or a fun family movie night, discover a new board game, turn off all the lights and light a candle and just sit silently in the night.
