We get it, Brooklyn. You’ve got a lot going on. So much so that it’s hard to keep up with all the kid-friendly places for jumping and climbing, getting mucky with paints and clay, quiet reading, shopping for some rainbow bling  or filling empty tummies with something delicious. But we try! Click through for 9 fresh places just in Brownstone Brooklyn alone.

For the Budding Ceramicist: The New Painted Pot

Get ready for some pot throwing! The paint-your-own-pottery studio, Painted Pot, has three Brooklyn locations and this summer, closes its original Carroll Gardens venue to open a more spacious studio that will house a new pottery wheel. Celebrating 20 years in business this year, The Painted Pot has been steadily expanding its services to offer pottery art, mosaics, glass fusion, canvas painting, classes, summer camps and of course, birthday celebrations. The new studio, just a few doors down from the old one, will allow more clay modeling classes to be added to the schedule. (Open in July)
