30 Best Things to Do in Queens with Preschoolers and Toddlers

Living in or visiting the borough of Queens is a nonstop international learning experience for little kids, filled with diverse sights, sounds and tastes—and it's super family-friendly.

It's famous for being the most ethnically diverse county in the United States where hundreds of languages are spoken daily. From eating dumplings in Flushing to feeding a goat on a farm, Queens can inspire, teach and feed the spirits of your little ones.

Children of all ages can enjoy Queens, but traveling around the city with a kid 4 or younger can be a challenge. We’ve compiled a list of the best things to do in seasonal order, so you can enjoy Queens like a king, including parks and playgrounds, museums and play spaces, the beach, and even amusement parks perfect for toddlers and preschool-age kids.

March GoList: The Best Things To Do With Philly Kids

Spring is almost here! The weather is turning, and it's the perfect time to get outside and enjoy some quality family time. Get outside, take a walk, and enjoy nature and all the newly blooming flowers. Enjoy some ice cream on a sunny day. With spring comes all the great consignment sales that Philly area families love- perfect for stocking up for a new babe, or for outfitting those ever-growing toddlers. Easter doesn't come until April this year, but there's always St. Patty's Day to celebrate! 

Although, maybe we still have time to get that one big snow day in! Hurry up, and check all the winter fun off your list before it's too late. As always, check our event calendar for even more fun things happening this March!

Rockin' Jump Ridge Hill: Where Kids can Jump and Climb the Walls

It's beginning to feel a bit more like spring, but that doesn't mean every day will be sunshine and roses (there's still March and it's whole lion/lamb thing to endure). When the kids are bouncing off the walls, the best to do is bring them somewhere it's encouraged—like an indoor trampoline park!  

We previously told you all about our visit to Mount Kisco’s Rockin’ Jump, and since then another Westchester outpost of this franchise opened at Ridge Hill in Yonkers, near Legoland Discovery Center. We recently hopped on over to the newer—and larger—Rockin’ Jump to size it up.
