The best things to do in New York with kids
Upcoming NYC events and festivals for kids
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.
Kids Week At The Intrepid Museum
School's out, but the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is bustling with activity. Spend winter break participating in Kids Week (Feb 15–22), an annual indoor celebration of all-things STEAM. There will be over 120 activities, including pop-up planetarium shows, maker spaces, performances, live animal meet and greets and so much more. Have a look at the full itinerary on the museum's website. See you there! All ages.
Riddle of the Trilobites at the New Victory Theater
Ever hear an arthropod sing? "Riddle of the Trilobites" is an original musical 500 million years ago, when all life dwells in the sea and trilobites rule the ocean floor. Talk about drama: Young Aphra discovers that the fate of the entire trilobite kingdom rests on her shelled shoulders, so she and her pals must puzzle out the riddle of life before their homes are destroyed. This funny, silly musical developed by New York's CollaborationTown and the Flint Repertory Theatre takes the stage at the always-interesting New Victory Theater. Ages 6 and up.
FROZEN on Broadway's Skate The Skyline
Time to channel the Queen of the Cold! Disney fans will want to make their way over to Pier 17 during mid-winter break, as they'll have an opportunity to enjoy a Frozen-themed experience that Elsa would love. Ice skate on the rooftop as the city skyline glistens in the background and music from the Broadway hit Frozen plays during your session. This is perfect, considering you know "Let It Go" by heart. When it comes time to munch, enjoy sweet treats that have Anna and Elsa's seal of approval. All ages.
