New York City for Kids

Non Voyage: Bring New York's Bright Lights Home

Get your walking shoes on and prepare to see the bright lights of some of our nation's biggest cities! Families looking to explore the culture and variety that urban centers offer can do so in the comfort of their own homes with projects and foods that celebrate the metropolitan destinations. Our week of big-city "Non Voyages" kicks off in the largest one of all – New York City.

  • Start the morning off with Eloise's favorite mealtime delight — room service.  Kids will love seeing their breakfast served bedside.
  • Lady Liberty has long been a hot spot for families visiting the Big Apple and the just reopened crown provides great inspiration for tots. There are 354 steps from the base to the top of the statue.  Have kids try to stack that many blocks to see the height. And, use construction paper to create your own crown hats.
  • The Museum of Natural History is known for its dinosaur exhibit so put together some 3D dinosaur puzzles and study the giants.
  • Even though it's not as bright as the lights of Times Square, check to see if there are any local theater productions that appeal to your tots. Introducing children to theater is wonderful even if you're way off Broadway!  Or, prepare for a marathon of Disney movies including The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, and Mary Poppins, all of which are currently playing in the Big Apple.
  • They say there's a great pizza shop on every corner of New York.  Get down to business in the kitchen and create the ultimate thin-crust pie. Just  be sure to eat it like a New Yorker – folded down the middle with the grease dripping off.
  • Serendipity's frozen hot chocolate is beloved by all visitors to the city.  Re-create it at home and give your kids a new perspective on the treat.
