See a show!

All the shows are perfect for families with young children. (Saturday, December 10) On Sunday, check out Babes in Toyland at William Paterson’s Shea Center (Sunday, December 11)

Sign the kids up for a holiday gift making workshop so they can give you a present they made with their own hands.

Or, take the kids to the Geyer Family YMCA and make delicious chocolate for the holidays at the Chocolate Making Family Workshop. (Saturday, December 10)

Have a great weekend!
