Today we headed to Madison Square Park to check out the Spring Kids Fest.
The Spring Kids Fest is a free event for kids and includes live entertainment, crafts, games, food and face painting.
There were lots of different stalls where kids could get freebies like snacks, frisbee, tattoos, colouring in books etc. Along with lots of activities like crafts, hula hoops, story time and more! There was a lot that was too old for Tate but he did enjoy trying out a few things.
One activity Tate enjoyed was playing with the foam tubes. Instructors were getting kids to help put different colours into plastic boxes. The perfect activity for Tate, if only he knew which colours he needed to collect! They also set up traffic cones for kids to stack the tubes on. Tate enjoyed giving it a go, but he much preferred helping out other kids with their stacking. This wasn’t necessarily well received.
After the foam tubes he checked out a booth by MoMath which consisted of a board with magnetic monkeys on them that fit perfectly together. This was very popular!
The Madison Square Park also features art work at present by Orly Genger titled “Red, Yellow, Blue”. Three lawns within the park have 1.4 million feet of undulating layered nautical rope covered in paint (hence the red, yellow and blue).
Here is n example:
