So we're back in school. We're packing lunches, going to PTA meetings. and overseeing homework. And we're probably starting to wrap our minds around figuring out some enrichment classes to fill in the gaps and/or add some sparkle to the process. Open houses and free trial classes make the hunt for great classes a little more do-able, which is why we offer this list of 10 great places that offer chances to try it out for free, either in the coming weeks or - in many cases - all year long. And for more enrichment options, check out our Enrichment Programs, Classes and Activities Guide.
It's hard to believe it's August already and we only have one more month of summer family fun! Time to rev it up and find out the best stuff to do with your NJ kids this month; why not try a rubber ducky festival, or a "ghost hunt", or maybe a huge superhero extravaganza, or just choose one of the many August fairs and festivals that abound in our fair state. Whatever New Jersey has to offer, we have our top picks for the month, so grab your kids and GO!
Hmmm, what to do in July, besides eat barbecue and watch fireworks? Oh, so much... Every month, we select a handful to two handfuls of our favorite events and this month, there are blueberries to be picked (and eaten), ice cream to be sampled (and eaten with really big spoons), a free family fair, and a huge ballooning festival with hundreds of hot air balloons floating heavenward. Have a great, fun, not too hot July, NJ!
