Updated for 2020!
One of my favorite holiday activities is making crafts. In addition to the many we make at home, I love taking my boys to events that offer fun and unique holiday crafting experiences. Each year we make colorful holiday creations that are perfect for decorating and giving to family members as gifts. This year, there is a wide variety of crafting experiences offered throughout NJ that you won’t want to miss. From building to painting to cutting and gluing to even cooking, there is fun to be had by all! What’s even better is that many of them are FREE!
