As the day winds down, are your kids looking for a fun activity to do to end the day and get that last bit of energy out? If so, join other school-age children for art and lawn games and all around fun, which is timed perfectly for dinner time!
Date: Every Thursday through October 31st
Location: Nelson A. Rockefeller Park (north end of Battery Park City/west of River Terrace)
I once owned a really fun, hip and cute stroller. I actually own three strollers, formerly known as fun, cute and hip. However, it’s impossible to identify that these strollers are fun, hip or cute because they are currently covered in apple sauce, squished raisins and crunchy Cheerios.
Good news – CleanBeeBaby is now calling NYC home and rescuing all of the strollers in FiDi and beyond and making strollers across NYC sparkle once again. Consider it Spring cleaning for the stroller set. The lovely folks at CleanBeeBaby are hosting several free cleaning events throughout the City as they get ready to launch in several locations all around NYC. FiDi Families is excited to welcome this much needed service to NYC. In exchange for a free stroller cleaning, be sure to bring a donation of wipes or diapers in support of the non-profit Baby Buggy.
Spring cleaning is around the corner and if you are looking for a local thrift shop to donate clothes, books, home goods or toys, head on over St. Margaret’s House Thrift Shop to drop off your goodies and be sure to request a receipt for next year’s tax filing.
