Carnegie Hall sponsors these free family concerts throughout the year. This spring, groove to traditional Americana tunes with Emily Eagen and The Whistling Wolves (April 26, 31), blending original songs with ukelele and whistling (Eagen is a two-time international whistling champion). The group gets kids stomping and clapping along while exploring the reaches of their imaginations. Later this season, stay tuned for Songs for Unusual Creatures (May 17) and Shine and the Moonbeams (June 4). Ages 6 and under.
Take the whole family out for a ballgame with a few perks thrown when the Mets play at home throughout the season. Make sure to show up early and head to Mets Plaza to jump around on inflatables and enjoy facepainting, balloon artists and more. Little sluggers can snag free swag like camps, sunglasses, posters and Fatheads, plus run the bases after the game to meet Mr. Met. Ages 12 and under.

The Grammy-winning band hits NYC for two performances of their tunes made especially for tots. Listen up for songs from their kids' albums Here Comes Science and Here Come the 123s including "Solid Liquid Gas" and "Nine Bolws of Soup." Thanks to the show's use of low volume and mellow house lights, even the littlest ones can rock out without getting stressed. All ages.
This season, the bookshop powerHouse on 8th welcomes and hosts the authors of Enormous Smallness (5/31), Who Did It? (6/7), Mermaids of Parade (6/14), and Mr. Squirrel and the Moon (6/21) (6/15). Ages 2 to 8.
Randall's Island is rife with natural areas for you and your kids to discover. Throughout the summer you can see and learn about anything from wetlands to bird migration just a trainride away from the concrete jungle. Wander through the island's nature at your own pace and learn from the Natural Areas experts. All ages.
