We're 3 Months Old Today!

12|12 is 3 months old today!

We’re three months old today! Between our 3 month anniversary, the change in weather and the fast-approaching official start of spring, it seems we have a lot to celebrate. As we begin to swap out cozy footed bodysuits for more weather appropriate attire, we’ve rounded up seven must-do activities this spring with your little ones!

The Whitney Museum: Family Programs

  1. Whitney Museum: Whitney Wees and Stroller Tours
    If you’re looking for a kid-specific activity, Whitney Wees encourages looking, sharing, and working together through the use of color. There are three available dates: March 12 and 19, and April 2 from 10-11 am. Reserve your tickets ahead of time to ensure admittance.

    Want to go for a tour, but worried about creating a scene with a random outburst from your baby? The Whitney also offers Stroller Tours, where the museum is closed to the public, and screaming babies are welcomed with open arms.
