Weekend Fun for Philly Kids: Nature, Museums, Apples November 4-5 Submitted by Kristen Sullivan on Wed, 11/01/2017 - 7:01pm What better way to spend the first weekend of November than with educational and engaging events throughout the Delaware Valley. Best yet, many of our top picks are free! Head outdoors to learn about nature by exploring the grounds at Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education. Girls who love computers can partake in free workshops featuring instruction about Linux and Python. Bank of America® and Merrill Lynch® card holders can get a free ticket to select museums in both Philly and New Jersey all weekend long while Brandywine River Museum and The Barnes offer free admission for all on Sunday. Crafty kids can make free projects such as a wise old owl wreath at Lakeshore in King of Prussia, patriotic humvee at your local Home Depot, or the featured activity at Kennett's Garage Youth Center. Once you have had your fill of free fun, take a snack break for apple pies, apple cider, and apple butter at Peddlers Village, or decadent chocolates at Betsy Ross House. Conclude the weekend with a train ride aboard the Wilmington & Western Railroad to enjoy the spectacular autumnal colors and scenery. Speaking of trains, be sure to browse our latest Santa Express post so you can book a magical train ride for the holidays. For now, make the most of your family time together by reading on to see all the fun that awaits! Read more.
