Updated for 2020!
It’s almost here! That holiday most known for chocolate, hearts and everything pink. You guessed it, I am talking about Valentine’s Day. Although it is fun to buy hearts full of candy and give an over abundance of hugs and kisses, why not try something new this year!
After reviewing what NJ has to offer families to celebrate Valentine’s Day, we have put together a list of some wonderful educational programs your kids will LOVE!
