Time to start thinking of indoor activities for the kids. Good thing we live in NYC a cultural mecca. MoMA (Momtrends favorite kid-friendly museum) has an inspired program called "Tours for Fours." This weekend program, you guessed it, is for four-year-olds and their parents/grands.
Tours for Fours is a chance for kids to get up close and personal with the art. Each month a new theme is introduced--the November program is called Color! I've heard fantastic things about this opportunity to have a family outing with art. It's not just a look and listen program. The little aesthetes will also get to MOVE and CREATE.
Admission is free. No preregistration. Note: Children must be four years old to attend this program. Younger siblings will be allowed to accompany the group, but the participating child must be four.
