The Gift of Experiences

A gift that lasts beyond the holidays!

By MacKID Bridgewater- Danielle Romano December 7, 2023

Each year we show our love for the children in our lives with nothing but the best gifts. Most of their gifts tend to be toys, which they play with for about a week or so. They are over the moon excited that they received these toys they always wanted but in a blink of an eye they are on to the next best thing. This year let’s change it up and why not give the gift of experiences. Give them something they can create core memories with family and friends. A gift that supports local businesses and declutters your house. 

Here is a fun list of experiences your kids might enjoy!

Family Fun:

 XtremeCraze Family Fun Center

An enormous inflatable airpark made for the whole family to enjoy. The park includes a dodgeball court, giant slides, climbing mountains, spiral tower slide, a ninja obstacle course, a big air bounce zone, and much more! They even have a great laser tag arena and a Game Zone arcade.  When visiting, it is best to plan a head and book your session. For the best experiences it helps to wear socks, long pants and long sleeves. Your inflatable park sessions last for 55 minutes. Children 4 years old and under must be accompanied by an adult. They even offer toddler exclusive sessions for safer play time for littles! XtremeCraze is a great gift idea as well as a big group or birthday party option.
