After months filled with sunny days, swimming, and Summer Reading, parents and kids are shifting gears and getting ready for Back to School. There are a few things on any busy parent’s back to school list...shop for school supplies, fresh haircuts, and getting back on that school schedule. To help your kids deal with the excitement (and anxiety) of a new school year, here are some ideas to ease the transition.
- Shift back to a learning mode by borrowing one of our museum passes for a fun day for the whole family.
- Become explorers in our own backyard by discovering the history of Burlington County with this Passport Program.
- Visit the library and check out a book just for fun with these suggested titles by grade level curated by our children’s librarians.
