Easter, Smeaster March 21, 2008

Easter’s over (well is a couple days) and Spring Break is here.

What to do with all that free time?

Here are some ways to keep the kids entertained this week.

1. Bounce U and Pump it up are offering special week-long open Bounce times for Spring Break. Bounce U in Cherry Hill is open Monday and Wednesday from 10am to 1 pm, Tuesday from 12:30pm-6:00pm, Thursday 10am to 1pm and Friday 10am to 12pm. Space is limited call to reserve bounce space. Pump it up in Marlton is also offering a special spring break schedule your kids can bounce all week long from 10am to noon. Check their website for more information.

2. Your kids are off for the week so now would be a good time to take advantage of the visiting some of the museums in Philadelphia you never get a chance to visit. The City Pass might be a good way to visit the sites and save some money and save time you’d spend waiting in line for tickets. The City pass is $34 for kids 3-12 and $49 for adults. This ticket is good for nine days and includes admission 5 of the great Philadelphia attractions including The Franklin Institute Science Museum, Philadelphia Trolley Tour, The National Constitution Center, The Adventure Aquarium, The Academy of Natural Science, or the Eastern State Penitentiary and The Philadelphia Zoo. Check their website for more information.

3. Visit you local Barnes and Noble. Check their your local stores website. They often offer a free weekly story time for little ones (this is a great way to preview a new book before you purchase it). After checking out story time, grab lunch. Your local public library may also have some free reading or craft classes for the kids during this upcoming week.

4. Check out the Garden State Discovery Museum, Jelly Bean-Jungle, The Please Touch Museum and Oceans-n-Motions.

Do you live in the South Jersey and Philadelphia Area and know of a something to do during Spring Break to keep the kids busy? Please send a comment and let me know! I’ll add it to the list.
