Fall Break in Memphis means parents looking for things to do with the kids, whether it’s for daycare purposes or as something fun and educational for them to do during the week off from school. Fall break also serves as a good time to enjoy the city as a tourist of sorts.

The Children’s Museum of Memphis will offer Kreative Kids Fall Camp. The camp is for children who love to bring their creative ideas to life.
