Stir-Crazy In Context
“Trying to decide what to do with stir-crazy Vermont kids in winter? Maybe they are home from school on break … and want easy, indoor winter fun. There are a variety of places and attractions that will let your child’s creativity, imagination and energy soar, away from the confines of their regular space.” — April Barton, The Burlington (Vermont) Free Press, 10 Dec. 2021
