Those are the kinds of activities you'll do if you take your kids to the Children's Museum of Manhattan (CMOM) on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
My boyfriend and I took the boys to CMOM on Easter Sunday not realizing that the place would be super crowded because of the holiday. After five floors of very cool exhibits, we were exhausted! But we were so happy that the boys had a blast.
My son played with sand for the third time that I've been there to witness it. For those who don't know, Equis has some issues with properly processing sensory input and used to cry hysterically when coming into contact with uncomfortable textures. So, for him to play with sand, is a huge accomplishment!
The boys also pretended to drive a NYC fire truck and a city bus, learned about the body through interactive exhibits, played with puzzles and constructed buildings with foam blocks. All in all, the place is a great place to take the kids, although I'd suggest bringing them on a day that's not Easter!
If you want to visit the Children's Museum of Manhattan, be sure to note that you can bring a stroller but it needs to be checked (for free!) and that no food or drinks are allowed inside.
