School kids across the country are looking at abbreviated November schedules, but New Jersey kids have several holidays to look forward to this month. First up is Election Day, Tuesday, November 8. While not all schools are closed, many are. Then we have Veterans Day on Friday, November 11, but may NJ schools will already be closed for the statewide teacher conferences happening Thursday, Novemenber 10, and Friday, November 11. That has caused some districts like Toms River to tell students to stay home all week!
Of course, don't forget about Thanksgiving later this month, when kids have Thursday, November 23, and Friday, November 24, and some have a half day or no school on the Wednesday prior. Yikes! That means more time off than the December holidays for some NJ school kids.
With that in mind, we're putting together a list of 25 fantastic things to do this November in New Jersey with the kids. Lucky for you, dear parent, the holiday season also means plenty of fun activities, many of them FREE. Read on for more ideas.
Don't forget to find more fun in our November GoList and our daily Event Calendar of activities around New Jersey. It might also be a good time to check off one or two items on our list of 100 things to do in New Jersey with kids before they grow up.
