Great Find for NYC Parents: Summer Fun Guide!

23 Jun


I have been getting a lot of questions from parents about after-school and summer programs for their kids.  I’m in the middle of a bigger-than-I-thought little project over here, putting together a spreadsheet of information to help navigate most of the free or affordable programs in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

While this is taking more time than I thought to compile, I wanted to share one great resource that I stumbled upon through my research on this topic.

It’s a website called Mommy Poppins – Things to do in NYC with Kids.  This website is written by local parents who find (mostly free) off-the-beaten-track enriching activities to do with kids.  They post new content every day and share what they think are the best weekend happenings every Wednesday.  The website covers activities in all 5 boroughs and consists of guides to help you find ClassesSummer Camps,Birthday Party IdeasMuseums and ExhibitsIndoor ActivitiesDay Trips and Travel Ideas and more.

Most relevant now is their Summer Fun Guide– and most of the activities they list are completely free!

Their event calendar features great things to do every day.  If you are looking for something specific, you can search the site or use the category tags to filter their information.  You can also sort posts by age or location by clicking on the colorful tabs underneath their logo.

Finally, if you sign up for their free newsletter, you’ll receive emails with all of their updates.

Enjoy looking around on their website and I’ll be back soon with a comprehensive list of after-school and summer programs!
