Musical Puppet Show & Craft Workshop: Twice Upon A Time, Gowanus Souvenir Shop, Gowanus. “Twice Upon A Time” is the enchanting tale of Anushka, a young girl, who simply can’t get to sleep one moon-lit night. Children will love these musical versions of favorites such as The Hungry Caterpillar, Where The Wild Things Are, Goodnight Moon and Goodnight Gorilla. The show is followed by a craft workshop.

Storytellers present crafts, songs, stories, and creative play around the theme of NESTS. Space is limited. RSVP at

Cinderella, BAM, Fort Greene. Captivating solo performer Shona Reppe presents a witty reinterpretation of the classic fable. Set on an inventive tabletop stage, this production uses puppetry, secret hatches, hidden doors and a handbag full of magic to tell Cinderella’s story. At once lush and minimal, Reppe’s Cinderella engages young audiences’ imagination, inviting them to complete the story for a truly dynamic theatrical experience.

Kid Stuff Swap, Brooklyn Free Space, Park Slope.
Round up your children’s outgrown clothes, equipment, and toys & bring them to Brooklyn Free Space preschool to swap for bigger sizes and get “NEW” stuff to play with!
