Tuesday's pick of the day: Election Day Celebration
Tue Nov 3
If your kids have the day off from school today. there's plenty to keep them busy at spots around the city . After you tote 'em to the polls (be sure to read our take on the candidates first), head to Lefferts Historic House where kids can cast their own ballots in an Election Day Celebration . Once your kid has voted, hang around for some patriotic cake and to hear the winner announced at 4pm. Happy voting!
Enter to win Sesame Street: 40 Years of Sunny Days on DVD
Mon Nov 2
It seems like NYC's gone nutty for Sesame Street . In honor of the iconic kids' show's 40th season (do you feel as old as us?), there's an upcoming exhibit at the Brooklyn Public Library , prominently featuring the new book, Sesame Street: A Celebration of 40 Years of Life on the Street ; a new Sesame Street Live stage show hitting MSG in February; and a retrospective DVD, Sesame Street: 40 Years of Sunny Days , chronicling four decades of top-notch edutainment. Time Out Kids is getting in on the celebration with two cool giveaways: Enter to win a family four-pack of tickets to see Sesame Street Live: When Elmo Grows Up and try to snag one of five copies of the new Sunny Days DVD. Nothing better than free stuff to chase "the clouds away..."
Monday's pick of the day: Corduroy screening
Mon Nov 2
Didn't know that Don Freeman's classic tale about a department store-dwelling teddy bear had been adapted into a film? Neither did we. Today, your brood can watch the live-action short based on the tome, followed by A Pocket for Corduroy , a "sequel" to the original, in which Corduroy is forgotten in a laundromat and must find his way home.
Egg by Susan Lazar comes to Dumbo
Mon Nov 2
A number of the shops we profile in Time Out Kids sell onesies and booties from Egg by Susan Lazar , so we were excited to hear that the company opened up its very own retail shop in Dumbo . The boutique carries baby and toddler clothing and accessories, maternity gear, organic crib bedding, diaper bags and more. The line is also especially popular with celeb parents— Jennifer Garner 's daughter Seraphina was photographed in an Egg hat and Katherine Heigl 's daughter Naleigh was caught wearing a striped dress from the line. The store will host workshops such as prenatal nutrition for parents and parents-to-be.
