Page 14 of 39 n Hudson Valley Parent 15 Pleasant Valley mom Tara Boettger says, "We love Lilymoore Farm because it is small and easy to navigate for the children. The staff always answers any questions that we have about the animals. What we love the most is the story time. Each week we see and read along with a different farm friend." Open Tuesdays, starting May 29, 12- 4pm & Saturdays year-round 12-3pm. Art Centro 485 Main St., Poughkeepsie 845-454-4525 If your children love to get messy and create, then this is the place for you. Art Centro is all about helping families bond through works of art. You can choose to take a class, secure private studio time or participate in the Community Clay Day on the third Saturday of each month where the whole family can play with clay for just $6 a person! "Art Centro has local, affordable and skilled staff who are very attentive to children and it's a great creative outlet for little ones," says Julie Shook from Hopewell Junction. Aimee Bressler from Poughkeepsie agrees that this place is fantastic. She says, "It is not just for kids. If parents are feeling creative they are welcome to join the fun. Their staff is very helpful and the kids can even try their hand at the pottery wheel." Open Tues 1-9pm, Wed 10am-6pm, Thur 1-6pm, Fri 12-6pm, Sat/Sun 1-5pm & closed Mondays. Glazed Over 315 Main St., Beacon 845-765-0505 This is not your average donut joint. My family often plan trips to Beacon just to visit this place. The donuts are custom and made-to-order. You get to decide on the glazes, toppings and drizzles that will adorn your donut. The sky is the limit. Might I suggest the maple bacon? It's life changing! Once you make your choice, you can watch your donut being made fresh through the kitchen window! Open Mon-Thur 9:30am-5pm, Friday 9:30am-7pm, Sat/Sun 8:30pm-7pm & closed Tuesdays. Katie Randall lives in Hopewell Junction with her family. Emilia, 6, made the perfect Father's Day gift at Art Centro. Ariana gets her hands dirty and learns about clay at Art Centro.
