It’s a tough situation… your house is for sale and the kids are home for the summer (or anytime). The weather may not cooperate to make a simple escape and walk around the neighborhood possible. What’s a parent to do?
Here are the top 5 Kid-Friendly places to take your kids when you have to clear out of the house, after cleaning up the house. It even helps to bribe them with the “fun” of the activity to get them to help you tidy up for the showing.
After you have tucked all the kids’ stuff into baskets, toy boxes and packed a snack “go bag” here are the parent’s top 5 things to do, indoors, around Bergen County with your kids.
Top 5 Things to Do With Kids
The New Jersey Children’s Museum
599 Valley Health Plaza, Paramus, NJ 07652 | (201) 262-5151
A whole lot of fun makes the educational value invisible to the kids, and appreciated by Parents. This is a great place to spend a few hours, or an entire day. Even book a party!! During the summer they even add Monday to the regular schedule. They really “get” what Parent’s want and kid’s need. Be sure to visit the museum’s website to see what special activities they have going on. Check out the summer “Passport to Fun” weekly theme schedule.
49 East Midland Ave. Paramus, NJ 07652 – Phone: (201) 261-0032
Let the kids work on their swing and aim for the monsters! A fun place for kids of all ages, adults included. They also offer private parties and special events. Stop by their website for a virtual tour of what’s in store for you at Monster Mini-Golf in Paramus.
Holiday Bowl Bowling Center
29 Spruce St. Oakland NJ – 201.337.6516
This family friendly bowling establishment has been in Bergen County for 50 years. They make it even more fun with the kid friendly “bumpers” to keep the balls from ending up in the gutters. Bring your socks and be ready for some clean old-fashioned fun and laughs.
Color Me Mine
Ridgewood, New Jersey – 201.445.4898
Encouraging creativity and expression in your children is fun, and maybe you will end up with a great new art piece to decorate your home during the sales process. Color Me Mine is celebrating Independence Day all July with “Made in America, Made by You.” Tuesdays offers an early Bird Two for Tuesday pricing special (check the website for more details) and Friday from 4-9pm is Pajama Nite – wear your jammies and get 50% off Studio fees!
The Tenafly Nature Center
313 Hudson Ave, Tenafly, NJ 07670 – (201) 568-6093
This fabulous outdoor nature center also includes an amazing Visitor Center. So an indoor option is available to you. From the “backyard” habitat, to the small collection of native species, it’s a fun place to spend a few hours, and if the weather breaks take a hike on one of the nature trails. The Visitor Center Library has over 1,000 books to choose from to share a fun experience and read about the things you might see there.
Have fun, and hopefully when you get home you’ll have a call from your REALTOR at The Jeff Adler Team telling you that you have a full price offer on your home!
Aren’t you glad you left the house and made memories that your family won’t soon forget at one of these great Bergen County businesses?
