The best things to do in New York with kids
Upcoming NYC events and festivals for kids
Time Out Market: Dreamcatcher workshop
Nightmares, beware! Crafty kids are tackling you head-on. During a Private Picassos workshop at Time Out Market New York, tots will work with wooden embroidery hoops, ribbon, yarn, and—naturally—unicorn horns and glitter to create a magical, mystical dream catcher. Please note that admission includes art supplies for children and parents. Ages 3 and up.
Time Out Market: Puppet shows
Start your Sunday mornings at Time Out Market New York! Not only will you have a chance to indulge in delicious brunch dishes (hello Clinton St. Baking Co.) but you can keep little ones preoccupied while you munch. Join the Puppetsburg crew on our fifth floor stage as the marionette entertainment kickstarts the day on a high note. With a new theme each week—such as "Farm to Table with Old McDonald," "The BEYONCE Show" and "Clementine Goes to Burning Man!"—we have a feeling you'll be as equally entertained as the kiddos. Bonus? Your youngsters will receive complimentary juice! Ages 6 and under.
Lunar New Year at the Brooklyn Children's Museum
The Brooklyn Children's Museum celebrates Lunar New Year with a day full of fun activities! Help create blossoms for ColorLab's cherry tree, make a paper lantern, join author Michele Wong McSwee for storytime and make a paper lion puppet to bring to the Lion Dance that will parade through the museum. All ages.
Lunar New Year Celebrations at Flushing Town Hall
Welcome the Year of the Rat at Flushing Town Hall. Join Puppetry in Practice to make your own puppets, then go on a Dragon Walk. (Jan 18, 2pm.) Visit the Lunar New Year Temple Chiese Bazaar to watch live performances, snack on delicious food and take part in fun arts and crafts. (Feb 1, 11am and 1pm.) All ages.
