MLK Weekend Best Things To Do in NYC With Kids: Honoring Dr. King, Celebrating the Vote, and More
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is on the horizon and the holiday reminds us the best way to foment lasting change is through language, education, and peaceful protest. In-person programs that thoughtfully introduce kids to King's ideas include volunteering at a local garden Saturday, a walking tour of Harlem on Sunday, and a tribute to the civil rights leader at the Brooklyn Children's Museum on Monday.
The inauguration of a new president is always momentous, and CMOM's Right to Vote exhibit gives kids a solid understanding of our democracy in action and preps kids to tune in and watch Joe Biden deliver his inaugural address.
Poppins@Home is popping with amazing virtual classes and activities this week, including a teen and tween wrap cooking class, free activities from the Westchester Children's Museum, and a Snapology STEAM lab, which explores design, DNA, Minecraft, and more.
