free-things-to-do-in-queensSo the kids are off from school for over a week, which is like a year in mom days… mom days really should be a measurement of time like dog years.  Anyway, below are some free things to do with kids over the spring break in Queens, free museum days, free classes, nature walks, performances and more. Enjoy these awesome things to do and enjoy the vacation with your kids….and I use the word “vacation” loosely.
