The Children's Museum of Manhattan is getting in the spirit this giving season with a full spread of Thanksgiving weekend events.
From Friday, November 24 through Sunday, November 26, families can head to the uptown museum (212 W 83rd St) for arts-and-crafts sessions, fall wreath making, pumpkin decorating, live performances from Justin the Magician and more—you can even contribute to the CMOM’s annual turkey sculpture installation.
And it wouldn't be a proper Thanksgiving celebration without spreading the love: the CMOM is kicking off the holiday season with its annual Holiday Gift Drive, so you can bring a toy or make a donation during your visit.
“Thanksgiving is an opportunity to teach our children about gratitude. In fact, there are teachable moments embedded in each and every day of parenting and in our programming at CMOM,” said Dava Schub, CEO of Children’s Museum of Manhattan.
