Easter egg hunts around NJ and other Easter activities for kids
Before I give you some tips on where you can take your kids for some Easter egg
hunting and other fun Easter stuff, may I just say I've heard some hysterical stories about parents getting competitive.
Crazy stories about parents grabbing eggs out of other kids' hands if their own kids weren't being aggressive enough. So I'll play this like an alcohol commercial. Hunt eggs responsibly. No shenanigans.
It's for fun, not a Heisman Trophy!
