WEEKEND ROUNDUP: March 18-19
We don’t know about you, but we’re ready to grab the kids and get out of the house this weekend! Luckily there is no shortage of family fun throughout Brooklyn — take in a show, celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, or create a stained glass window that will inspire spring. Enjoy yourselves and be sure to visit SkipKid for even more activities!

Does the latest dose of winter weather have your housebound kids frog-hopping off the couch? Give yourself (and your kids) the gift of the Sit ‘n Spin, the single toy we would never, ever part with.

THIS WEEKEND

The Peter Pan Experience, BAM, Fort Greene.

Everyone knows you never grow up in Neverland—but what happens if you’re grown up already? Plucked from their busy jobs, five adult strangers find themselves in a world of nightstands and night lights, a world where your favorite forgotten toys appear out of nowhere, your favorite music thrills you to dance, and all the joys of childhood come flooding back thanks to the invisible magic of Peter Pan. Ages 7+

Metro Measure, New York Transit Museum, Brooklyn Heights.
All Weekend
