Decorate T-shirts and hair accessories with Little Bird
Wed Dec 16
Over the summer, Time Out Kids worked with the gals over at Little Bird —a New York City-based personal shopping service for the under-18 set—to help three local kids get their wardrobes ready for fall. This weekend, we're partnering with the stylists again for a fun holiday event. On Sunday, December 20, kids ages eight to 18 can use rhinestones, tulle, bows and more to make unique T-shirts and accessories. The craft session takes place at Earnest Sewn on Washington Street at 4pm, and Alice's Tea Cup will provide tea and treats. Click here to purchase tickets.

Wednesday's pick of the day: Holiday Storytime
Wed Dec 16
Kids learn all about the various December holidays—including Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and Eid—at this multicultural story session , hosted by Barnes and Noble at the Gerald J. Lynch Theater. Familiar characters including the Berenstain Bears and the Rugrats share their family traditions, and best of all, it's free.
Gluten-free cupcake decorating this weekend
Wed Dec 16
The culinary options for kids with food allergies just keep improving. Case in point: On Sunday, December 20, Maria's Mexican Bistro (a Park Slope eatery known for its made-at-table-side guacamole) will host gluten-free cupcake decorating workshops at 11am, noon, 1pm and 2pm. The holiday-themed event is a collaboration between Celiacs About Town and Robicelli's Cupcakes ; each little chef will receive two cupcakes (one chocolate and one vanilla) along with a slew of toppings and frosting colors. The experience is a very reasonable $10 per child, but space is limited. RSVP here and don't forget to specify which time slot you prefer. Maria's will also be rolling out a brand new gluten-free brunch menu (for all you moms and dads with Celiac disease). Parents are invited to indulge in the fare while their kids play. The meal is a $10.95 prix-fixe that includes unlimited mimosa, champagne or Bloody Marys—just what you need to get through the holidays.
