Summer is flying! Before we know it we’ll be back to the freezing, snowy days of winter, and it’ll be time to keep the kiddies inside most days. At least that’s how it’ll be for us. I’m not a big fan of winter so we do most of our outdoor activities during the warmer months. With summer slowly coming to a close, I figured I’d put together a list of activities we should all do with our children before the weather changes. Fall doesn’t start until September 22nd, and in NYC it doesn’t really start to get breezy until about the first week of October, giving us just enough time to comfortably knock out this Summer Bucket List. Don’t be the parent of the kid who doesn’t have at least one awesome story to share on the first day of school! Especially since most of these events are FREE! Yes, I’m judging you 🙂
Candytopia – This delicious, interactive, pop-up museum is coming to NYC beginning on August 15th, 2018. This will probably the most Instagrammable place in the city this year, and we all know how important that is! Candy + Pictures?! That’s a win-win for the whole family!
Summer Streets – Can you imagine seven miles of NYC’s most busiest streets closed to cars and only opened for fun and play? Well that’s what’s happening on August 18th, 2018. This is the last day of this year’s event, and you definitely don’t want to miss it.
Cookie Do NYC: I’m sure we’ve all heard of the dangers of eating raw cookie dough, but this beautiful shop has found a way to make one our biggest cravings safe to eat! Make a reservation at the Cookie AcaDOmy and learn how to create your very own cookie dough!
