Jeppe Hein's Mirror Labyrinth NY exhibit in Brooklyn Bridge Park, the exhibit that you actually get to touch, has been a hit- and soon your little ones can draw inspiration from it to create their own work! Teaching Artists from CMA will guide young artists through the ideas of manmade artwork that blends with its environment and help them create their own versions of the piece in the form of camouflage creatures that blend with their surroundings and a pair of wearable bird wings. Ages 1-10.
- Price band: 1/4
Based on classic Aesop's fables, this puppet show will makes kids and parents alike giggle with songs and silly knock-knock jokes.

Bagels, juice, coffee and mimosas are available for purchase at the bar so families can kick back and enjoy some Sunday morning entertainment together. Ages 2 and up.
Enjoy the last stretch of summer and head to the Harlem Week NY “Children’s Festival” for two full days of back-to-school fun.

The New York International Children's Film Festival is back, and this time Shaun the Sheep trailed along! Aardman Animation's latest PG-rated flick was such a hit at the festival's opening night that now it's back for one more preview before it hits theatres. All attendees will receive a free movie poster featuring our favorite woolly stop-motion friend. All ages.
Get a naturalist's guide to the west side at one of these weekly wildlife tours. Little explorers will get views of the waterfront and a chance to see some of the 85 species of birds inside the park, plus butterflies, dragonflies and cool insects. Meet at the Christopher Street Fountain near Pier 40, wear comfortable shoes and leave any barking creatures at home (they'll scare off the wildlife!). Ages 6 and up.
