Entertain the Child in You in the UWS

Have family coming to town or friends with kids that you’d like to entertain? While there are a plethora of things to do in NYC for adults, there’s also some great things that kids AND adults can enjoy as well. Check out some of these options in the Upper West Side!

Columbia University’s Miller Theatre is organizing a fun event entitled: Morningside Lights. From Saturday, September 19th – Saturday, September 26th, the event delivers a week’s worth creative workshops in which families can design and craft their own lanterns. They can then showcase their work in a twilight procession through Morningside Park on Sept 26th at 8pm. The evening will be filled with a glowing, beautiful mass of handmade art. This year’s theme, “New York Nocturne” calls for vibrant lanterns inspired by the city after dark. Be sure to sign up for workshops online. A special craft table for families can also be found at the Common Ground Festival (Sept 26th) on the day of the big parade in Morningside Park. The event is recommended for ages 8 and up.

Before you take the little ones to Broadway, try something a little more low-key and local first. For some theatre fun with the kids,  check out the performance of Click, Clack, Moo at the Calhoun’s Mary Lea Johnson Performing Arts Center. The performance is on Saturday, September 26th at 2:00pm.

Also happening this September, Children’s Museum of Manhattan has a new installation called, NYC + Me: A Little Bite of the Big Apple. Only a 10 minute walk away from The Sagamore, this could be an easy, fun event to bring the kids to. From Friday, September 25th-mid January 2016, Little New Yorkers can explore their hometown at CMOM’s new exhibit that celebrates living in the Big Apple. In the gallery, tots can drive taxis and police cars, build mini skyscrapers, make public art, show off their talents on the street, manage a food cart, read stories, run for local government and even try a NYC-themed obstacle course.
