Show cabin-fever-ridden preschoolers how fun winter can be, and sneak some learning in as well, by dropping them off at French Regional Park’s Outdoor Kids Club. This month club members learn the basics of cross-country skis with help from Three Rivers professionals. At the end of the day, your child will put together a letter that will help them teach you about everything they’ve learned, so you can benefit from their lesson as well.
