For vacation week, skip the school books




It’s Presidents’ Day and school vacation week, and if you’re not dragging your young ones from car lot to car lot hoping to score a good deal, consider taking them somewhere else for fun. (Let’s be honest: Shopping for a car is not an enjoyable experience.)

In Salem, the House of the Seven Gables, at 115 Derby St., has activities for children this week through Sunday,

including “Constructing History” workshops that experiment with historic construction techniques using popular building toys. Workshops run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tours for children and students are free through March 31 when they accompany an adult. For more information, visit 7gables.org.

In Acton, The Gallery at Villageworks, 525 Massachusetts Ave., will host a screening of the Arlington International Film Festival’s Animated Short Films of 2018 on Thursday
from 7 to 9 p.m. The screening features “Trejur” by Concord-Carlisle High School student Thomas Kim — about a modern woman remembering her “wretched, toy-giving grandmother,” according to The Gallery’s notes —- and includes 10 other independent works by aspiring filmmakers from the United States, France, Spain, Iran, Lithuania, and Argentina. Visit aiffest.org or galleryatvw.com.

In Cohasset, the folks at the nonprofit, organic Holly Hill Farm are offering “vacation week fun on the farm” — three-hour winter woodland explorations for children on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday
. They say to dress for the weather and outdoor activities, and meet at the farm’s main barn, 236 Jerusalem Road, at 9 a.m.
Pre-registration is required. Visit hollyhillfarm.org.

In Boylston, the ever-colorful Tower
