April vacation activities to inspire you at home

Pictured: Students and staff play life size Jenga outside during a recent beautiful day.

Wondering what to do with your child while they are at home during April vacation? Latham Centers’ Children’s Program planned an entire week of fun activities*, some of which you may be able to translate to your home environment!

Student favorites include lots of outside time to celebrate Earth Week. Students have the option of a field trip to our local Museum of Natural History in Brewster — an excellent resource for kids of all ages!

If you have any questions about these or other activities best suited for your child with Prader-Willi syndrome, please email Patrice Carroll, Director of PWS Services at Latham Centers, at TipTopics@lathamcenters.org.
