Grandparents Day is often an overlooked holiday that celebrates very important people in our lives. Each year, I try to find a fun way to spend time with my kids’ grandparents to show them how much we love them. Luckily, NJ offers a variety of fun and exciting Grandparents Day experiences. There are events for every age, interest and budget. To make planning easier for myself and for all of you, I decided to put together a list of some amazing Grandparents Day events in NJ!
