Small went on a field trip last week to visit Moomah in the heart of Tribeca. Moomah is a creative play-scape, nature school and cafe for kids. As soon as you enter this beautiful place you immediately notice the artwork hanging on the walls, the detailed shadow boxes and the beautiful color palette and most of all the feeling of calm and creativity. It is very unlike the usual play spaces filled with too many primary colors, scary characters and loud music blaring at top volume. Moomah has a serene, calming atmosphere, perfect for both children and adults.
We ordered some pastries for the kiddos and coffee for us and browsed the amazing selection of eco-friendly and handmade clothing, play dough and wooden toys in the shop section.
Then it was time to choose out DIT (do it together) Kits. There about 10 to choose from. It was a tough choice but Estela (pictured above) chose the Butterfly Collage. The best part about the craft projects at Moomah is they provide all the supplies needed. So all you have to do is sit down with your little one and create with the help of one of the art makers working there!
All of the artwork displayed on the walls at Moomah are inspired by nature and the animal kingdom and are made to coincide with the classes offered and change each season. We fell in love with the shadow boxes by Moomah Creative Director, Jacqueline Schmidt, and thought they would fit right in on the pages of Small!
