Fun Friday

Jump in with both feet. It's the weekend. Here is my list of fun things to do around the area. In no particualar order.

1. Why not hop on over to the new Delaware Children's Museum. After much anticipation the museum opened its doors to the public on April 24th 2010. This Saturday from 9am to noon-experience Critter Cart from the Delaware Natural History Museum. Learn about Critters and their habitat in the ECOnnect ehxhibit. And then jump on over to Studio D from 10:00 to 3pm and design your own flying kite, build structures with magnets, paint on the easels and hang out on the cozy purple carpets! Fun!

2. This is the last weekend to catch Suess on Stage at The Garden State Discovery Museum. Watch on stage as your favorite Dr. Suess characters come to life including Horton. Don't be late, show starts Saturday at 2:00.

3. Since we've talked about 2 children's museums, might as well, make it a 3rd. This one is for all the Zhu-Zhu pet enthusiasts in your house! Hop on over to The Please Touch Museum this weekend for the Zhu-niverse Tour. Watch as your child mimics their favorite Zhu Zhu Pet, crawls through the life-size, inflatable habitat trails, or  tests their skills and race friends through the Kung Zhu Training Grounds. The Fun takes place on the Please Touch Museum’s outdoor front terrace Saturday July 30 and Sunday, August 1, 2010.

4. It's Family Fun night from 6pm to 10pm at Freddy Hill Farms in Lansdale, Pa. The family that plays together saves together. Play minature golf as a family and save $1 per person. You just saved yourself and ice cream cone or a drink! Good Deal.

5. Lakeshore Learning Store presents a great free craft for kids. What's my Mood Door Hanger? Now you won't have to guess any more. Make this great door hanger free at Lakeshore Learning stores across the region Saturday from 11:00am to 3pm. If I don't have to guess the mood of my son before I knock on the door to get my head bitten off, priceless, oh wait, it is...nevermind. Check out thier website for a location near you!

6. Saturday starts Shark Week at the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, New Jersey. The aquarium is home to the most sharks on the East Coast and the only Aquarium in the country to have Hammerhead and Tiger sharks on exhibit. Shark week runs from Saturday July 31st to Saturday August 7th. Kids 12 and under who create and wear a shark fin on their head get $2 off admission. I asked if that was all it was and my husband, warmly replied, "What do you want to do? Pet them." Point taken. Want to learn more about Shark week? Check out the Shark Week line-up on the Discovery Channel.

7. One of our favorite places, Johnson's Corner Farms in Medford, NJ holds a Farm BBQ and Flea Market every Friday from 5pm to 8pm through September.
