iVillage's Bring Your Kid to Work Day: Check Out the Cuteness (and the Discount Codes!)

Cake Pops! Fro-Yo! For this year's Bring Your Kid to Work Day, iVillage went all-out with awesome activities, treats and more!

At iVillage, we take Bring Your Kids to Work Day seriously -- as in, we throw a huge party so we can all get our kids together and have a ton of fun. This year we had everything from a candy necklace bar and a pop-up tattoo parlor to cake-pop decorating stations and kids yoga (to work off the sugar!). We're not sure who had more sugar: the kids or the adults! Scroll through our crazy-cute photo album of the day (thank you, Stephanie Porter and Victoria Porter) and watch for the exclusive discount codes from our event's generous sponsors.
