Too Sweet: NYC Valentine's Day Events for your little Cupid
What could be sweeter than spending Valentine's with your wee one? I'm thinking this might be my favorite Valentine's Day so far, and my husband and I have had some pretty good ones. But seriously, what could compete with having your own real live cherub to snuggle with? Maybe I could get Pooka a little bow and arrow, dress her up as Cupid and have her shoot Dada as he comes in the door. Or maybe not...Perhaps the best part is all the Valentine's activities going on this week for you and your cherub. There tons to choose from, but here are a few of the best.
Big City Moms is hosting two fab V-Day events this week. The first is a Mommy and Me Valentine's Soiree on Friday, February 12th from 11:00AM-12:30PM at Dylan's Candy Bar. The event will feature music by one of our favorites, Rockin' with Andy, plus craft activities, candy, food, and photos. If your looking for a whole family event Big City Moms is also hosting the Sweetest Valentine's Day Party Ever at Kidville on the UES on Sunday, February 14th from 11:00AM to 1:00PM. Featuring a Little Maestro's concert, games, food, candy, family portraits with Suzanne Cohen, and use of the amazing Kidville gym. This is a family friendly event, so bring siblings, dadas, grandparents and more! And I can only assume that BCM will be doing their amazing baby gear raffles at these events. I never walk away empty handed from one of their events.
Diva Moms is also getting in on the V-day action with their 6th Annual Divalysscious Valentine's Day Party at Dylan's Candy Bar on Saturday, february 14th from 11:00AM - 1:00PM. Featuring a performance by Broadway Babies and activities including chocolate decorating, jewelry making, picture frame decorating, family portraits, and tasty sweets.
Baby Bites is hosting a Mommy and Me Valentine's Day Lunch at the Roger Smith Hotel on Friday, February 12th from 12:00PM-2:00PM. This event features a Little Maestro's concert, photos, and raffle for a Chicco Stroller and Boon high chair.
Interested in less child oriented music? Then grab tickets to the Baby Loves Disco Valentine's Disco Ball on Sunday, February 14th from 12:00PM to 3:00PM at Le Poisson Rouge on Bleeker St. There will be music, hula hooping, a bubble machine, snacks, juices, and of course dancing to the grooviest tunes from the 70's and 80's.
For more ideas, check the Time Out NY Kids Valentine's Day event calendar. Some of our other favorites this week include Clifford's Valentines Day Party at FAO Schwartz on Thursday, February 11th, Sailor Valentine's made with shells and other ocean items at the South Street Seaport Museum on Saturday, Febraury 14th, and Chocolate for Tinies at Chocolate and I, New York on Saturday, February 14th.
Seems like you can't go wrong with whatever event you chose. We'll be hitting the Big City Mom events, so maybe we'll see you there!
