It's going to be a hot one, friends! Plan accordingly when you map out the best things to do with kids in NYC this weekend. 

The temperature is soaring, but fortunately, families can keep cool with fun indoor activities this Saturday and Sunday: New exhibits are making their debut, pop-ups are boasting photo-worthy moments and art classes for kids are using the best of the season to inspire little Picassos. 

If you're still too hot to function, cool off with a visit to one of the best ice cream shops in NYC on Sunday (aka National Ice Cream Day, aka the best holiday around) for freebies and deals. 

Happy weekend, NYC! Stay cool!
