There aren’t any malls along the eastern end of Route 280, so you might be able to take the kids for an afternoon of activities at the Newark Museum without much trouble.

On Friday, November 26, from noon to 4:40 p.m., the museum is holding Design Day. Just pay the museum’s regular suggested admission ($10 for adults and $6 for kids) and you’ll get access to five special activities that are all about the building blocks of design. The kids will find out how things are made and get a chance at inventing something new. There will also be Family Fun tours of all the Museum’s collections.

The five design challenges are:

Furniture Design–Design a new piece of furniture, such as a table, chair, or bed;

Architecture Design–Draw an architectural plan for a new building of your choice: a house, a school, or even an airport;

Industrial Design–Invent a new object for people to use, such as a light, a fork, or a teacup;

Graphic Design–Design a new logo for the Newark Museum;

Gallery Game: Exhibition Design–Use magnetic pictures of objects in the Gustav Stickley exhibition to rearrange the gallery.
