Happy February everyone! Well we made it through that extra long feeling January and now making our way through winter. One thing I love about New York is that theres always plenty to do no matter the time of year. February normally calls for a lot of indoor activities and exhibits but because we’re experiencing such a mild winter I wanted to include some outdoor fun too. I know there are definitely a few events on this list my family will be checking out!
I love a holiday themed event. It makes everything so much more festive and fun. My kids not only love helping in the kitchen but they definitely love cookies, especially decorating them! Hosted by Malibu Farms which just opened last summer at pier 17 is a gorgeous space to be decorating cookies as a family. This is an event we will definitely attending.
Take the family to the New City Ballet for an international classic, Swan Lake! Its never too early to introduce our children to the more sophisticated shows written into the world of arts.

Start your Saturday mornings with story time and a skate session at Bryant Park. Read and sing with Cali Co Cat and then get a free skate rental for a skating session after.
