Family Events in NoMad: Madison Square Park Launches Kids Cubby
While the NoMad area is well known for its great restaurants and bars, NoMad also has plenty of great options for kids and families.
Families can take in a number of fun and educational events at the Museum of Math. On Thursday, January 23rd, parents may want to check out the open house for MoMath’s “Transformations” summer camp. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. and offers a glimpse at the day camp’s series of week-long programs for kids in grades 4 through 8. You can register for the open house here.
If your child is more of the creative type, he or she might enjoy taking in a show or a class at Tada! Youth Theater. Tada! is one of the city’s premiere stages for talented youth and offers winter classes and summer camps for kids ranging in age from 3 to 14. Kids are also welcome to audition for one of the theater’s original musicals.
Finally, if you’re looking for something to entertain your child at home, check out the newly launched Madison Square Kids Cubby. Kids Cubby is a monthly blog full of art and crafts projects, recipes and ideas for family activities.
Most of Kids Cubby’s projects use simple household materials, but they encourage children to experiment with their own ideas. If your child made something she or he is proud of, share it on the Madison Square Park Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. This month’s project teaches children how to make their own decorative snowman with paper and cotton balls.
Not only does this Madison Square Park Conservancy blog entertain at home, but it also hosts scavenger hunts and other fun events in the Park.
There’s so much to do in the Madison Square Park neighborhood, no matter your age. Head over to NoMad and have some family fun!
