The Art Farm in the City hosts all sorts of fun activities for kids that include dancing, singing, arts and crafts, cooking, and real live animals! You can sign up for weekly classes, play groups, weekend programs, and even summer camp. The best deal: the Part-Time Pet program, where your kid can finally get the bunny or lizard he or she has been begging for, without you having to clean up the cage.

The first day of school is a joy for some and a nail-biter for others. For kids who are struggling, a supportive tutor can move the needle.

We recently came across Bee Tutored, and we were impressed that they do not try to be everything to everyone. Instead the Bees focus on tutoring elementary, middle, and gifted & talented students enrolled primarily in public schools. The Bees, who are current and former teachers, are happy to travel to your home.

Robert Moy, master balloon-folder, isn’t going to make you just another balloon dog. He’ll make you a wearable Darth Vader helmet with a light saber or wearable butterfly wings. He’ll make you an adult-size T-Rex if you give him half an hour. Needless to say, he’s a hit at kid’s parties.

There is nothing like the arrival of a new sibling to rock the world of a used-to-be-only child.  I like to soften the blow by giving a gift to the new Big Sib when I show up to do the new baby honors.

Lucky Wang Chelsea is just down the street from my apartment, and I love their witty t-shirts and cool kimonos for babies.  But they also have this wall of toddler-pleasing toys ($3-70) so I can shop for Big Sib, too.

I wish I could sew. There are so many beautiful fabrics in the world -- just imagine being able to shape them into the garment of your choice.

Until the sewing lessons happen, I satisfy myself with the occasional trip to shops with unusual fabrics. Lucky Wang has an eclectic mix of fabrics for babies and toddlers -- stripey knots, faux fur, kimono-style prints and so on.
