    Discount on Kidville Summer Session

    Fri Jan 29

    You can love it or loathe it, but you can't deny that posh play-space chain Kidville has cool classes for kids (not to mention lots of convenient locations). If you're thinking of splurging on the spring/summer semester (May 10-Aug 16), now's the time to act. Register before Sunday at midnight and you'll receive $50 off one of your child's classes. There are tons of fancifully-titled options to choose from, including Little Maestros, Run Wiggle Paint & Giggle, My Big Messy Art Class and the irresistible Ballet Tea Party. So haul out your calendar and start planning.

    Ernesto Neto installation now open at MoMA

    Fri Jan 29

    If you've picked this weekend to see the "Tim Burton" exhibition (truly a must), be sure to stop by a new MoMA attraction: Ernesto Neto's Navedenga. It's an awesome, interactive hollow chamber in which kids can walk around, sniff the scent of cloves and touch super-soft fabric. Any child (or adult) who flipped for Neto's blockbuster exhibition anthropodino last summer will enjoy this one, even though there's no ball pit this time around. Check out our full review of the installation here .

    Thursday's pick of the day: Hope for Haiti

    Thu Jan 28

    Candy for a cause? Sign us up! Dylan's Candy Bar hosts an event to benefit Haiti today. Families can enjoy live music, plenty of prizes and of course, tons of sugary stuff. Though the price tag is on the high side, all of the money raised will help Haitian earthquake victims.

    Submit your kids' stories to the PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest

    Thu Jan 28

    PBS KIDS GO! , the popular children's channel, is sponsoring its first-ever writing contest for kids. The competition, which began yesterday, invites students from kindergarten through third grade to write and illustrate original short stories and then submit their works to a local PBS station for review. Local winners will move on to the national level, where their tales will be judged by a panel of jurors (specific judges have yet to be announced). If your little one wins, he or she could walk off with a new laptop or MP3 player. If you know of a scribe itching to enter, head to pbskids.org/writerscontest .
