Jenn’s Tip for Taking Kids to Touch a Truck Events


It’s always fun to be the child that gets to sit in the truck and turn on the sirens and press the horn. As each child takes their own turn Touch a Truck events can become loud and overwhelming. If you think the sounds may bother your child buy one of these noise cancelling headphones for kids on Amazon. (The link is an affiliate link. This means Jersey Family Fun makes a small commission from your purchase to support this mom-owned business that employs other moms. For that we thank you.)


For more information about this event, please visit the link listed here or the event organizer listed in the organizer area of this event listing.
