THE BRONX - With winter break starting next week for public school students, some parents are wondering how they will pass the time.

Nicole Perrino, who is a mother and runs the blog BronxMama.com, compiled a list of free and low-cost activities to keep children entertained.

The Bronx Museum of the Arts is offering arts and crafts, tours, and plans to cap off the winter break with a Chinese New Year celebration next Saturday. The celebration will include music, dancing, art and performances.

The New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx and the Bronx Zoo also have activities planned.

"Family time is always keeping people out of trouble," says Perrino. "Just good, old-fashioned family fun."

Perrino believes it is important to keep parents informed of options available in the borough.
