Work up a mighty Thanksgiving appetite at the Museum at Eldridge Street, where kids become “preservation detectives” and set out on a scavenger hunt for artifacts in the galleries. Century-old clues will lead them on a journey into the past where they’ll learn a Thanksgiving tale as told by the historic synagogue. More hands-on activities include holiday crafts and turkey-shaped challah. Reservations required. Ages 4–10.
Jazz at Lincoln Center debuts its kiddie music fest at the Jewish Museum, adding a day of interactive family fun to the institution's ongoing concert series. Tots and parents can jam out with the WeBop! Band led by Mr. Tim while exploring connections between the jazz tunes and works of art. Abstract Expressionist paintings by artists Lee Krasner and Norman Lewis—featured in the gallery's current "From the Margins" exhibition—will provide inspiration for families as they compose and conduct their own sound collages. RSVP is required. Ages 3–8.
Boogie down during this disco-inspired event. Kids can enjoy an array of activities, from creating sock puppets to playing soccer as families munch on some tasty treats. All ages.
Save the discussions about gratitude for the Thanksgiving table. At this holiday-themed, family-friendly standup show from Kids 'N Comedy, hilarious teens get down to brass tacks about all the things they're not so thankful for, including something we can all relate to—NYC's smelly subways. Ages 9 and up.

Families can start off their Sundays at Tunes with Tina, a unique cabaret just for kids in midtown that gets little ones singing along while brunching on chicken and waffles, baked eggs and éclairs. Jazz pianist and singer Tina deVaron hosts surprise performers and delivers chart-topping favorites and children's classics on Broadway Sundays (Nov 2, 9, 16, 23, 30), while the Holiday Hit Parade (Dec 7, 14, 21) features Christmas carols and seasonal favorites like "All I Want for Christmas Is You" and "12 Days of Christmas." Kids can also decorate holiday cookies for an added $6-per-child fee. Reservations are recommended through OpenTable.com. All ages.
