10 Things to Do with Kids Over Winter Break in Baltimore

Wear Your PJs to Port Discovery

Tis the season for family traditions, crazy fun, and cozy jammies! Roll out of bed and straight to Port Discovery to take part in our Pajama Party Palooza December 21 through January 1, 2020!

Play with friendly monsters from under the bed, help create jammies for larger than life animal friends, race in pillow cases and skate in socks, and make and munch on “midnight” snacks as you watch a movie with new found friends. This is not your typical PJ party – it’s an over the top week filled with over-sized games, exciting activities, and family fun!

Kick It Up! has been transformed into new fun during the Winter Break: Pajama Party Palooza! Challenge a friend to the thrilling Pillow Games – or race around the Sock Skating Rink – with no skates required! They’ll also have fort building, slumber party games, and MORE!  This is the perfect opportunity to check out their new interactive Port Exhibit and four-story climber with slide! Have little tots? Be sure to stop by Tot Trails — it’s designed just for little explorers! Your kids will love it. MORE
