|*Coordinating my kids clothing to everything we do is intentional and essential in NYC.|
When Joanna told me about the ball pit at the Children's Museum of the Arts, I imagined it would be like the kind at a McDonald's Playland. But this was so much cooler! And cleaner (I hope)! And so easy to recreate! Buy 10 of these exercise balls and this interlocking foam mat. Wahla! Ball pit. Surely this is what you want to do with the spare room in your house. Move over craft room/man cave/guest bedroom. Ball pit coming in! Think of the fun.
Wait for it . . . And kick!
Making a sister poke her own eye might be the funniest trick a brother can do.
Oscar nailed this one. Poor Ella! I'm so glad I never had a brother. My sweet sisters would never.
And finally this pic captures the chaos of the ball pit when Rob entered. Watch out little baby in the back!

This is just one of the many rooms CMA executes perfectly. Actually, CMA is by far the best children's museum I've ever visited anywhere. It's mix of fun, hands on, and aesthetically gorgeous. I'm tempted to go again tomorrow for its Lunar New Year celebration. I saw them setting it up on our way out. It looks like they have a lot planned! Go if you can!
Have you been to CMA yet? Put it on your itinerary if you are visiting NYC with kids. It's special without feeling touristy. Tip: It's pay as you wish Thursdays 4-6pm! Tempting. I'll go back someday and take more pictures of my other favorite spots of the musuem. For now, just take my word for it. It's amazing.
