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 parachute 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.
