"10,000 Stars!" was the rating my daughter gave WOW: World of Wings. A combination museum, atrium and indoor playspace, WOW is 2 levels of non-stop fun and exploration, and a one of a kind New Jersey kid funtastic experience. We have visited many indoor playspaces in New Jersey, but this is quite different than your average museum; have you ever been allowed to blow giant bubbles indoors or seen cockroaches participating in their own Olympics? If your child is an entomologist or zoologist in training, WOW is the place for you!
As editor of New Jersey Mommy Poppins, I'm very excited to tell you about something a little different today: I will be assistant-directing the second annual production of "Listen To Your Mother" in NYC! We are looking for tri-state area writers, performers and storytellers to audition for this very special show that will take place on Mother's Day, May 12 at Symphony Space in Manhattan. But what in the world is "Listen To Your Mother"? Read on for all the fantastic details!
Boom! Pow! Crash! Zap! If your kid's hero is more Tony Stark than LeBron James, finding a local comic book shop is a must. Just think of all the cool things your kid can learn through reading comic books: the battle of good and evil, visual storytelling, hilarious (intentional and unintentional) dialogue, and how to rock a cape. Read on for quotes and recommendations from some Jersey comic book store owners and a listing of great Northern NJ stores.
Star light, star bright…Mommy, I want to see the stars tonight! If you have a little Galileo on your hands, fear not. New Jersey is home to a myriad of majestic outdoor star gazing locations, as well as many public observatories and, yes, even astronomy clubs for the truly dedicated. With the proper equipment, information and planning, your family will get an up-close look at planets, star clusters and the Moon. Happy star-gazing, NJ!
