Keeping the kids engaged and entertained during the cooler months can be a challenge. This November, we've compiled our list of top activities for keeping cabin fever at bay in Wellesley. No one needs to mention that some are educational too! Enjoy these and other kid-friendly local attractions as Fall 2015 winds down:
- The Globe at Babson College
- Jammin' With You!
- Hardy School Playground
Some people have to travel to see the country's best roadside attractions. Fortunately for us, Wellesley boasts its very own must-see site: The Globe at Babson College. Kids love anything super-colorful and enormous, so it's pretty much a given that they'll adore the 25-ton globe. Treat them to November photo ops in front of the massive orb; at 28 feet in diameter, it's guaranteed to render nearby objects and people ant-like in comparison.

Studies have linked music to academic achievement. Besides helping your children succeed in school, learning to play an instrument provides plenty of personal satisfaction -- and it's just plain fun! Jammin' With You! is a program offering Wellesley kids the chance to develop musically and socialize with children their age in a welcoming environment. Private, in-home lessons are also available, making it easy to stave off boredom on late-Autumn 2015 days.

From babies to bigger kids, children in every age group will love the wide range of exciting equipment at this Wellesley playground. An abundance of slides, climbing structures, tire swings and other equipment in a variety of sizes ensures that every November play session at Hardy will be a smashing success. Stimulate their imagination and keep them active and fit throughout 2015 at this local kiddie hot-spot. Picnic tables provide resting spots or the perfect places for refueling.
