Here on Martha’s Vineyard, February school vacation takes place the week of Monday, February 25, and the Island rallies to keep local kids entertained throughout. While the perfect storm would allow for them to stay outside sledding down their favorite hills, and frolicking in the soft, white stuff, there’s plenty to do indoors to keep them safe and warm should the need arise. Here’s a round up of some of the kid focused events taking place during Martha’s Vineyard’s public school winter break February 25 through March 1. Many of these locations offer family friendly fun throughout the year so be sure to check their calendars for whenever you plan to be on-Island with your tykes.
