Wednesday's pick of the day: Free entry to the Guggenheim
Wed Oct 21
From its playful architecture to its nontraditional exhibitions, the Guggenheim is one of the city's most kid-friendly "adult" museums. That winding walkway makes it feel like a maze, a labyrinth of secrets waiting to be discovered by little art enthusiasts. No wonder such a wonderful children's book was written about it . Today, your brood can explore the museum free of charge in honor of its 50th anniversary . In addition to artwork, there will be film screenings, activities, tours, story time and more. Pop in anytime between 10am and 5:45pm to say "happy birthday" to this iconic New York institution.
Enter your kid in the Lands' End Holiday Art Contest
Wed Oct 21
If you can spare one of the masterpieces hanging on your refrigerator (um, yeah), send your kid's best holiday-themed work to Lands' End for a chance to win a gift card of up to $500. If your little Picasso's piece is picked, it will also be showcased on the company's website. So whip out those crayons and have Junior get to it; anything from snowmen to menorahs will do. Last year's winners included a picture of a girl catching snowflakes on her tongue and a cute-as-pie penguin holding a gift. Photo courtesy of Landsend.com.

The store, which is named after her two daughters, Riley Madison and Stella Rose, buys, sells and trades maternity clothes. "After my second daughter was born, I decided to sell my maternity clothes online," says DiChiaro. "I had spent a lot of money on them and felt that someone else could get use out of them. It was then that I realized how desperately women wanted fashionable maternity clothes at reasonable prices!" At first, DiChiaro bought clothes from women in her neighborhood and online, and set up shop in her house. But, when her husband got laid off (he was a former merchandiser), the duo decided to pool their talents and open up Madison Rose. The boutique carries stylish items including brands such as Olian , Maternal America , Momzee and Noppies . All buying and selling is done by appointment only, so make sure to call the store in...
