Let me begin by wishing you all a very Happy New Year. There will be a separate post all about resolutions and my best wishes to you all. 🙂
Before time flies by, as it inevitably does, I wanted to share a little review on a recent experience my family and I had at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum.
The Brooklyn Children’s Museum is an incredible institution, a first of it’s kind, to grace Brooklyn. It’s home to a world of endless possibilities, rich in cultures from around the world and innovative play. It’s the place every parent should take their kid to at least once a month – it’s totally worth the trip. Located in Crown Heights, the BCM offers families an in-depth look into art and culture through a plethora of exhibits for infants through high school aged children.
Little Z turned one and I know that’s a huge milestone. We had to celebrate but I don’t do so well coordinating, hosting, or planning parties (anymore… I used to be able to for my first child). Blame it on age or lack of patience but I really wanted to keep my sanity while throwing the funnest, most entertaining (and educational) party for my kid and guests.
After scanning through many local children focused magazines and blogs, I narrowed the place down to the BCM. I remember how much fun my family and I have had at the museum before and gave it a shot. The museum offers many birthday packages. The Totally Tots party package seemed like our best bet since most of our party guests were between 1 and 5.
The Totally Tots party includes the following:
Geared for Ages 1-5 years
Available at 9am or 5pm only
This exclusive birthday celebration takes place in one of the most sought after areas of the Museum, our Totally Tots exhibit. Yes, that’s right—this exhibit is yours exclusively for your party! Let your imagination run wild as you discover the magical wonders of our water works pond, visit our sandbox, and enjoy one hour of guided free play with a puppet show! Make some noise as you explore, crawl, wiggle and giggle your way through the tunnels, slides, and music makers in this unique and colorful space.
Birthday experience includes:
1 hour of guided free play in the Totally Tots exhibit, including an interactive puppet show
45 minutes in the Party Room (Party Package) or Mezzanine (Deluxe Package)
2 party hosts
Food & Beverage for 20 people (Party Package) or 30 people (Deluxe Package)
10” cake (Party Package) or half sheet cake (Deluxe Package)
Party favor for each child
In addition to our young party goers, we also had adults and teenagers at the party who could not stop dancing, laughing and enjoying every minute of our very special celebration.
Our party planner and very own DJ, Julian, did an amazing job. Our hosts Michael and Jordan went above and beyond to keep our guests happy and entertained. It was a party we will NEVER forget.
Words cannot do our experience at the BCM justice so here is a video:
