You plus your little, 8 hours to kill, dead of winter. A movie again? Nope, we say wing it.
Hey Mama, it’s time to check out the brand new World of Wings (WOW) in Teaneck.
Part playspace, part nature museum, but all amazing, this new center will WOW you. Reptiles, Butterflies, and Birds greet guests as they enter the atrium of the sleekly designed space. After meeting the non-mammals, visitors can create beaded jewelry, play 3D interactive digital games on a wall (so cool!) and ride a simulator through heart pounding plunges. Little miss girly pants will primp at the Prima Donna dress up area, while the under 5 crowd can hang in the “pretend” playroom, ball pit and bouncy house. Turn frowns upside down at the Bubble Room, where kids can make their own bubbles using the in-house wands.
And there’s no need to run off to lunch; pop into the “Grub Club” for a casual bite or grab a table at “Embers” for more serious dining. Those wanting to take it beyond a day visit can enroll in one of WOW’s signature classes in art or science or book a party for their next special occasion.

I'm a teacher and will be home this summer w/ my 14 month old. Can you suggest fun classes near Glen Rock to keep us busy? -Jen
So exciting to have the summer to hang with your little one. Doing a Mommy & Me Yoga class is something both of you can really enjoy. A good place to check out is the Yoga Studio at Destination Maternity in Paramus. Many public libraries also have everything from story time to baby/toddler classes that are free and so much fun. You can check out Barnes & Noble and Pottery Barn Kids- they offer story times as well. The Bergen County Zoo is a great place to spend a couple hours with the stroller (and don’t forget to take a train ride & ride the carousel). We love music classes like the ones offered at Music for Aardvarks and gym classes at My Gym. Your baby is on the young side for this, but perhaps later on in the summer you can check out The Big Playhouse in Westwood so he or she can explore around their adorable little kids village. Of course, keep reading our Weekend Playlist for a list of all the fun things to do in Bergen & surrounding areas each week!
