This second full week of October is yet another short school week for many New Jersey students. If you’re scrambling for day-off activities, Mommy Poppins has you covered with calendar full of fun fall activities.
On Columbus Day, don’t miss the final day of Turtle Back Zoo’s Great Pumpkin Weekend, which is chock-full of pumpkin festivities and, of course, animals. Or head over to Terhune Orchards for an extended Fall Festival Weekend with pumpkins, mazes, and other seasonal fun. Wednesday may be another school closing for some. Spend it at Great Swamp’s Outdoor Education Center for A Day Off with Nature: Skull and Bones or at My Gym’s Parent Playdate. These school closings are also a great opportunity to take a Fall Day Trip.
