Weekend Planner (August 8 - August 14): Beach Bash, Family Festival, State Fair and More!

Posted by: NJ Kids Team - August 07, 2013

Dear Friends,

It's hard to complain about summer - warm, sunny days, outdoor adventures, water fun...but occasionally (just occasionally) when you're wilting in the afternoon heat and the ice pops melt faster than you can eat it, you can't help but dream about cooler temps. Which got us thinking - why not have it both! Bring a little winter cold to your hot summer fun. Surprise your kids with a mixed up day of frigid treats. Here are some of our ideas:

  • Practice your double lutz (or attempt to just stand up!) at an indoor ice skating rink, such as Union Sports Arena
  • Create a frozen sipper - mix your favorite sorbet flavor and some sprite in a blender. Pop in a straw and enjoy!
  • Get wet at a winter ski resort turned summer outdoor water park, like Mountain Creek in Vernon
  • Visit the polar bears and mountain goats at the Museum of Natural City in NYC or the penguins at Jenkinsons Aquarium
  • Travel back to the Ice Age at the Liberty Science Center when you catch the film, 'Titans of the Ice Age'.
  • Freeze ice cubes colored with washable paint, then create a winter-scape on the driveway.

Stay cool and have fun!
