WATERTOWN WEEKEND FUN: Mother’s Day Activities, Yoga, Sweeney Todd, Blood Drive & Touch-a-Truck

Print More
A Watertown studio will host a mother-daugther yoga class for Mother’s Day.

Given that it’s Mother’s Day weekend, let’s explore the range of activities that you can do with your children or to help others’ children. Everyone can put their phones away to get up close and personal with trucks, plant some seeds, experience some theater thrills, or give a gift of life by donating blood for the Boston Children’s Hospital. And if you’d rather not think about children, head to the Watertown Center for Healing Arts to connect with other adults.
