Seaport Kids S+25
Earth Day

Sustainable castle construction. Lego building. Plants and science and the beauty of recycled materials. It’s all part of the upcoming Seaport Kids x Earth Day lineup of activities hosted by Mommy Poppins and Brooklyn Bridge Parents on Saturday, April 20. Let the kids loose to build and create with recycled moving boxes and other recycled materials. Open their eyes to the wonderful world of plants. This afternoon of Earth Day-inspired crafts, activities, demos, and a Magic Show will plant the seeds for environmental awareness in a hands-on way that’s full of fun.

On Seaport Square and aboard the 1885 tall ship Wavertree, South Street Seaport Museum will offer several hands-on activities to explore the effects of ocean acidification on marine life, how New Yorkers’ access to fresh water, the role of oyster shells in expanding Manhattan’s cityscape, the impact of storms on New York’s coastlines, and the preservation of New York Harbor.

Children of all ages are welcome (suggested ages 2-10), and children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Supplies will be provided, so just bring your imagination.

Seaport Kids is presented by NewYork-Presbyterian, Official Hospital of the Seaport. NewYork-Presbyterian is committed to improving the health & well-being of the Seaport community.
