Copy of Things to do with your child this Summer around Philly and Cherry Hill
Summer's here! For a few short months your child is off from school and you may have a week's vacation planned. But maybe you are going to take an extra day off a week from work and do a day trip with your children. Well here's a few ideas to do with your children for ages 3-9 around the Philadelphia, New Jersey and Delaware areas.
For a day of rides just for kids, in a safe and park like atmosphere, instead of going to the boardwalk, head over to charming Storybook Land. Here you pay one price to get in and go on various rides geared for this age group over and over again. And if you are looking for the real Santa, this is the place to come at Christmas time. Not only does he look so real, but make sure you're there when they turn the park lights on and don't forget they have the best hot chocolate around!
If you are down the shore in the Atlantic City area, stop over in Margate and say hi to Lucy. Lucy the Elephant, is a huge elephant right off the Margate Beach that you can climb inside of. A little bit of trivia that during Prohibition the eyes of Lucy would light up to give a signal to bring the alcohol into shore. This is a must see!
Now if it's early evening on a nice summer night and you want to catch a movie, visit the only drive-in theatre in New Jersey, The Delsea Drive-In in Vineland let's you see a double feature in the comfort of your car. Beware, you can't bring your own food in but this is a must do at least one in your life.
Rather than take a trip to the Zoo, which is also nice, swing on over to Paws Farm in Mount Laurel. With over 80 types of birds and animals here, you can learn all about them and join in classes and storytelling. You can also host your birthday party there which sounds like fun.
But what if you don't want animals at your party, lol. For that special little girl, go to Enchanted Dreams in Downtown Haddonfield. Here you will have a party that will sweep you off your feet. From the cute costumes, storytelling, singing and dancing, your party will be the talk of the town!
Then fly on over to Jules Portrait also in Haddonfield for a once in a lifetime fairy picture. The gorgeous handmade fairy outfits and headpieces will make any little girl feel special. To have this moment Frozen in time, a beautiful portrait or album remembering this time in her life is all you need. Our fairy set is designed to make you feel as if you are in an enchanted forest. With butterflies, water, and mushrooms to sit on, you can't help but get lost in the true beauty of this. This is a piece of art that will become an Heirloom item for generations to come.
