Searching for the best things to do with kids in NYC this weekend? You've come to the right place. 

We're here to help you make the most out of your free time—even if the days are getting shorter (and colder)! Now is the perfect time of year to take advantage of indoor activities for kids: gallery visits, (indoor) Smorgasburg, pop-ups, roller skating lessons and so much more! 

If you can't contain your holiday cheer, make like Buddy the Elf and check out the cool Christmas events for kids that are beginning to make their seasonal appearances. No matter what you do, we recommend tackling the activity with a mug of the best hot chocolate in NYC—with temperatures in the 40s, you'll need it!
