Visit a Toy Store
(with a budget)
$5 - $10
Who doesn't love toy stores? Oh, yeah, sometimes parents don't! This is a great opportunity to introduce the M part of STEM...that would be MATH. Going into a toy store on a budget of $5 can be made into a math equation by stipulating that they have to get 2 things (or 3 things), but you can't go over $5. Kids are notoriously indecisive in these situation and they'll likely have to run this math equation multiple times before they settle on their final selections. The good news is - Delaware is a tax free state. So $5 will actually get you $5 worth of toys.
There are a few GREAT toy stores around town:

Rehoboth Penny Lane

$5 and your supportive math skills.

All of these stores are family-owned by local people, and they're carrying GREAT STEM toys too. They'd be delighted if you spent a little more than $5. Maybe you have a birthday party or 2 coming up in the next month or so?
