The holiday issue of Going Places Magazine is available now. This is a great resource for Chicago families. Who among us couldn't use some suggestions for family-friendly activities and events to weather the next few cold months with our little ones?
I have two stories in this issue. First, check out my guide to taking your kids to the Modern Wing at the Art Institute. Yes, you should absolutely take your kids to the art museum. Don't be worried that they will make too much noise or break something. This place is full of stuff for kids (and you get to sneak in a cerebral and cultural experience too).
I also have a piece about how to make perfect paper snowflakes (because you can't just take scissors to paper and hope that they are going to come out looking pretty). This is the perfect project for a chilly winter afternoon.
Pick up a copy of Going Places (or have a look online at Chicago Parent's new and improved website).
