Summer is a great time for kids to explore and learn new things. If you're a parent in New York City, you might be looking for fun and educational activities for your child. Here are five ideas to keep your child engaged this summer:
Visit a museum: NYC has some of the best museums in the world, and many of them have programs and activities designed specifically for kids. The American Museum of Natural History and the Children's Museum of Manhattan are just a couple of examples. And there's a Brooklyn Children's museum as well.
Explore a park: Central Park and Prospect Park are just two of the many parks in the city that offer a range of activities for kids, including playgrounds, nature walks, and outdoor concerts.
Attend a summer camp: A summer camp is a great way for kids to make new friends, learn new skills, and have fun. Check out Backpack Kids' STEM-based summer camp program for kids ages 3-7.
Take a cooking class: Cooking classes are a fun way for kids to learn about nutrition and the science of cooking. The Institute of Culinary Education offers classes for kids of all ages.
Try a new sport: Sports camps and classes are a great way for kids to stay active and learn new skills. The New York Junior Tennis and Learning program is just one example of a program that offers tennis lessons and academic tutoring.
