With school out for the summer, many parents are in search of educational and super fun activities the entire family can enjoy.

One such option in the metropolis of Northeast Ohio is the new Everyday Heroes Activity Center, which recently opened at the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Beachwood.

Recommended for children 8 and under, the activity center uses books, crafts, movement and more to explore values of being an everyday hero.

“It’s a place where families can explore the values of being an everyday hero while having hands-on fun,” said Dahlia Fisher, the Maltz Museum’s director of strategic marketing and communications.

To kick-off the summer season, Mandel Jewish Day School’s graduating kindergarten, first-grade and second-grade classes visited the Maltz Museum on their last day of school.

More than 150 children, parents and caregivers attended. While dressed in “Everyday Heroes” capes, they zoomed around the good mood movement area, painted kindness rocks, made gratitude boxes and played at the jumbo block station.

The Everyday Heroes Activity Center is open during regular Maltz Museum hours. Visit for more information. cv
