What better way to celebrate #NationalSuperheroDay than with the characters from the Disney Junior hit series PJ Masks! Our guest blogger, Sandra Velez and her little one attended a superhero playdate at the New York City Fire museum.
Superheros come in all, shapes, colors and sizes. This was evident at the NYC Fire Museum. It was a very fitting way to teach kids that real heros exist. After arriving a bit early we walked the space that had fun NYC FDNY uniforms for children to try on as well as life size fire trucks! We proceeded to the third floor and found a fun filled play area. Here the children got to play and interact while coloring and chatting. The children went into a screening and were floored at the great shows! The colors and story had them all entertained from beginning to end!
All great things must come to an end. Catboy, Owlette and Gekko closed out the event by greeting all the kids and flexing in photo opportunities.
Goodies were given to allow us to keep the fun rolling at home. The PJ Masks Official Hero Celebration Kit, included exclusive downloadable PJ Masks character masks, activity sheets, invites and much more!
Skyscraper Museum Storytime Workshop. Bring your kids to the Skyscraper Museum to listen to a reading of Scott Santoro’s book, The Little Skyscraper. Following the reading, they will create their own illustrated short story based on their favorite real city or a fantasy city. This event will allow kids to think big, get creative, and leave with their very own written masterpiece.
The Skyscraper Museum hosts rotating Family Programs on Saturday mornings. These events engage children in exploring urbanism, architecture, and engineering through hands-on activities. Children’s will learn through images, film, and models of skyscrapers as well as changing exhibitions in the gallery. Registration is requested by Friday at 5p.
The Little Skyscraper is a story about a skyscraper that used to be the tallest skyscraper in the entire city. People would travel from all over to see the cityscape from his observation deck and spend time in his little park. As the city continued to grow, people forgot about the little skyscraper. He became dull and realizes that he had been forgotten. Luckily, the little skyscraper learns that he hadn’t been forgotten, but that he inspired the entire city.
Scott Santoro is known for working on many of the most successful animated films with his positions as head of animation for Disney’s The Lion King, being part of the story team for DreamWorks’ The Prince of Egypt, and his current work on DreamWorks’ Spirit, Stallion of the Cimarron.

They will then test which bridge can hold the most weight. Hopefully your kids are up for the challenge!
