Shopping, After School Activities, Crafts, & More!

By Amber Nevin Publisher Macaroni Kid Wilkes-Barre wilkesbarre.macaronikid.com September 6, 2021

It's that time of year again.  A time that kids and parents either look forward to or dread.  It's Back to School time!  As a mom myself, I know the trials and tribulations that come with back to school - shopping, anxiety, worried about which teacher your child will have, and getting the perfect first-day photo.  It can be very time-consuming and stressful.  We'd like to make the transition easier for you with the information below.  Hope you all enjoy your first day back.
