I enjoy taking parent & me classes with my son because it keeps us active as well as provides structure to our day. Our regular weekly classes are on summer break so it has given us a chance to check out some new and innovative activities.
Last week, we set out early in the morning & rocked at Moey’s Music Party in Big Daddy’s Diner on the UES. Moey is an engaging musician who performs songs with the kids, dances, jokes around, and makes for a fun experience. When the music party is over, you can stick around and eat some waffles or pancakes at the diner. The negative: this class takes place in a restaurant…so my son was crawling around on a dirty floor. Check out Moey’s Music Party & sign up for a FREE trial Class.
Later that afternoon, we also participated in a magical musical experience at a new kids hotspot on the Upper East Side: Three Little Birds Music. They are offering FREE trial classes, and would highly recommend parents to give it a shot. In this rapidly paced class, my son was shaking maracas, strumming the strings of a Cello, assisted with pushing the buttons on an Oboe, crawled under the Xylophone, and danced to the live piano. Both of us enjoyed the sensory overload & educational experience. This location also has an indoor playspace!
Outdoor yoga anyone? We hit the yoga mats last Monday morning & joined Elahi Yoga in St. Catherine’s Park (1st Ave. btwn 67th & 68th) for a FREE children’s yoga class and some story time.
Finally, on Thursday morning, we ventured over to Carl Schurz Park to participate in a FREE outdoor class with Gymboree Play & Music. They had the balls, bubbles, and parachutes for some instructional gym-time fun outdoors in this cool playground location. There are a few more weeks left so don’t miss out.
What is up next for this active dad? Some well-deserved rest…
Please feel free to share some upcoming fun outdoor activities for parents & kids.
