If you want to get outside, Susanna Farm in Lake Villa is offering fun on the farm from 11 am to 5 pm. There's a straw maze, hayrides and new Scottish Highland bull calves born in early January. The cost is $2 per person. If you want a hayride, that will cost $5. www.facebook.com/pages/Susanna-Farms/137524129623160 and http://www.susannafarms.com

And speaking of farm fun, in Waukegan a special indoor, interactive exhibit on farm life continues at the main public library downtown. A barn slide, chicken coop and fiberglass cow are among the attractions.
