There is an outdoor ice skating rink in Roosevelt Park in North Edison. If you've never skated before, this can be a good rink to learn in because there's a wall you can hold at waist level. However, it takes awhile to pick up, so you'll probably just be shuffling along the first time you go.
Admission plus skate rental is $11; just admission (no skates) is $6. Bring two quarters for lockers if you would like to secure your belongings.
Drinks / food after... maybe Menlo Park Pizza
You may wish to wear hats, gloves, layers under pants, etc according to temperature.
Also sunglasses because the light can reflect off the ice.
Greater than 40% chance of rain cancels.
