At these holiday camps for kids, your crew can stay busy—and have fun learning!—on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Children can take a cue from the civil rights leader himself and join a community service project with NYC Is My Backyard or let their creative juices flow in cooking, crafting and performing arts holiday camps for kids around the city.
Drop by Gowanus Loft on MLK Day for a Curious Jane–hosted hackerspace (a.k.a. a place where girls can get hands-on and meet other like-minded gals). Young do-it-yourselfers can sample one or all of the day's age-appropriate, girls-only craft workshops, in which they'll learn to make everything from cards to jewelry and candy. $10, with friend $8 each. Ages 6 to 12.
