It is raining in Williamsburg today, not a very pleasant day to be outside, so I took Miles Storm to the Brooklyn Childrens Museum at 145 Brooklyn Avenue in Crown Heights. If it was a nice day I could in theory walk, it is only 4 miles away, but either way you have to walk through a dodgy part of town, near Bed-Stuy, and that is not such a good idea.
Me and my husband have tried to eat at Egg for about 4 years now, seriously! Every time we visited; they were too busy and the wait was too long. Not today though, we were there right on opening at 8AM and able to get a table! Amazing. Apparently others had the same idea as within the next 20 minutes the restaurant was full. There were another 3 families with Little Ones and thankfully there were enough high-chairs to go around.
I heard about Farm to Baby through my twitter feed – the Internet is a wonderful thing! I read a ReTweet saying that they were going to be at the Greenpoint / McCarren Park Greenmarket last weekend. I was excited, being a fit and health conscious Mum I knew I had to go and check out their vibe.
So happy to write that me and Miles Storm were able to revisit Frolic Play Space again for a second time today, and the experience was nothing short of perfect!
We were warmly greeted by co-founders Carey and Julia who started on their dream of opening a Children’s community-feel play space 2 years ago! That’s a long time waiting for the doors to finally open on January 9th just past. It is also so exciting for them, and for all the children in the “Willy B” area who are lucky enough to spend time Rocking out at their venue!
The Gym Park is another great find!
To think a few weeks ago I thought that there was nothing really for my Little One to do – boy was I wrong. There is so much to do in the Williamsburg Brooklyn area, I can barely keep up.
Head down to 8 Oak Street down in Greenpoint, on the East River, if you are ever stuck for an indoor activity, or you just want to let your Little One tire themselves out. There is plenty to do inside the Very Colorful 2,800 square foot facility including trampolines, swings, hula hoops, scarves, toys, balls, and lots of other children! Everything is Padded too, which is great. Miles fell over so many times running and jumping, and did not bat an eyelid, it was all part of the appeal for him.
Miles Storm LOVED Sing-a-long at The Knitting Factory – he was literally dancing on the table, which is quite a sight to see!
Sing-a-long is held at The Knitting Factory at 361 Metropolitan twice a week on Wednesday and Fridays at 11AM till around noon. The cost is $3 per family – Bargain! Lloyd Miller from The Deedle Deedle Dees a Brooklyn based educational rock band hosts the Sing-a-long on Wednesday only; on Friday it is somebody different. I have heard various opinions about which Sing-a-long is better, however as I have only been on a Wednesday I really cannot comment.
Right off the bat, Puppetsburg WAS SO MUCH FUN. Miles Storm had a Ball. A Very Very Big Ball!
I heard about the Baby Puppetsburg show from another Mum in my building. I have had it on my list of things to investigate since I started this blog, and today Miles Storm and I finally made it over to East Williamsburg, to The Brick Theater located at 575 Metropolitan, to check it out. I feel like I am in East Williamsburg a lot these days. There is so much going on for Little Ones over there.
Miles Storm loves to eat my hair, literally, he likes to pull out clumps of it and eat it! As a result, my hair has looked pretty tragic for a long time and I have been dying to get a Hair Cut. But, finding the time to get a haircut being a full-time Mum is almost impossible – a miracle happened yesterday though!
Miles Storm has always loved to dance, and with this in mind I signed him up for a “Dancing Toddlers” trial class at the Williamsburg Movement and Arts Center #WMAC. The trial class was $10 which I booked it a week in advance. I find $10 to be extremely reasonable for 45 minutes, especially not knowing whether it is going to work out as planned? If one decides to sign up for the 10 week program it will be $170 total. Still quite reasonable for Williamsburg!!
Let’s get messy, and Like It!
If you are going to head over to Clay Play at Honey and Hazel Kids MAKE sure you wear clothes you do not mind getting dirty! And, that your Little One is dressed the same.
Honey and Hazel Kids is a quaint children’s lifestyle boutique located at 770 Metropolitan Avenue in East Williamsburg. They stock all kinds of cool products like Bibdanas and Beastie Babies – very Brooklyn!
