AWNY Mums and Dads Update, February 2018

Despite the constant sickness in my house, I did manage to spend some time outside of my postcode and have a few things to share with you this month: ‘The Sugar Hill Museum of Art & Storytelling’ and an event update.

When I first received my IDNYC, I noticed that there was a children’s museum a few stops north of where I live. The Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling is a relatively new museum. The newness of this museum was immediately apparent by the reactions of the staff, who were incredibly enthusiastic and warmly welcomed us.  It isn’t a huge museum but there is plenty of space with beautiful art and installations for the children to explore.  There is a room set up with activities for the children to touch, create and make noise.  We spent a good hour and a half in the museum until the children felt like they’d had enough. In addition to the exhibitions/installations, they also provide regular storytelling, books to read and creative art sessions.  Even without the IDNYC, it’s cheap to visit as children under 5 are free and adults are $7. It was a morning well spent.  

You can learn more about the benefits of IDNYC from one of my previous updates.

For our March event, Amanda has worked her magic again and we have an amazing deal for our Mum’s dinner. It will be held at Flinders Lane March 12th at 7.30pm. The cost is $40 plus tax and tips for three courses. The restaurant is BYO on Mondays and they don’t charge corkage.  Please RSVP through the Mums and Dads Facebook page or via as soon as possible.

Finally, I know some of you are keen to know the date of the Easter Egg hunt, an event that proved very popular last year. We’re just firming up the date and will have it confirmed in the next week.

Enjoy the warmer weather, let’s hope it sticks around.
