SATURDAY MARCH 23
Children’s Art Workshop @ Tompkins Square Library
The Art Loisaida Foundation will host a wonderful children’s art workshop. All children are welcome.
Kindur @ Fishman Space
A fairy-tale landscape of glaciers, volcanoes and flower-filled meadows is brought to vibrant life through touch in this interactive theater experience from Italy. Children are invited on stage to trigger the sounds, images, music and colors that make up this enchanting world as three dancers take the role of kindur (“sheep” in Icelandic) to guide audiences on an immersive, magical adventure. Ages 4-10.
Skate Day @ New York Hall Of Science
Design your own skateboard, experiment with ramps, and learn the fundamentals of skateboarding at 30-minute Skate Clinics with Go Skate pro skateboarders.
Historical Fashion Tea Party @ Morris-Jumel Mansion, Roger Morris Park
Don’t be late for an important date and miss this tea party! Bring along your favorite doll or stuffed animal to enjoy the experience too. Learn how to properly “take” tea, try on historical clothing and create a colonial mob cap. Pre-paid advanced registration is required.
KidsLIVE presents Gustafer Yellowgold @ Stephen A. Schwarzman Building
Gustafer Yellowgold’s show is a multi-media performance of live music, animated illustrations and storytelling. Since his creation by Morgan Taylor in 2005, Gustafer Yellowgold has become an international phenomenon, acclaimed by The New York Times, which described Gustafer as “A cross between Yellow Submarine and Dr. Seuss.”
SUNDAY MARCH 24
Eggs-Travaganza – Easter Egg Hunt! @ Brooklyn Children’s Museum
Join in with this big museum egg hunt! Will they hold prizes, treats or golden tickets? Exhibit areas will be divided by age groups with timed entry tickets, so even the littlest hunters are sure to find treasures! Don’t forget to bring a basket to collect your treasures. After the hunt there will be a private craft area for family fun!
Little Makers: Make A Mess With Oobleck @ New York Hall Of Science
Make, mix, pour, roll and splatter a mysterious gooey substance in this drop-in workshop. Use your hands and tools to discover how oobleck acts as both a solid and a liquid.
Poppy Seed Players: Young Moses @ Merkin Concert Hall
Young Moses is a hilarious re-telling of the story of Passover, featuring an angst-ridden teenaged Moses with an identity crisis, an eccentric Miriam who plays timbrel in the All-Slave Orchestra, and a giddy, child-friendly approach to life best summarized by the opening number, “Use Your Imagination.”
Crafting Stories: A Passover Crafting Workshop @ The Jewish Museum
Kids will be able to create their own Hagaddahs for Passover with author Francine Hermelin Levite. Using pages from Levite’s book, My Haggadah: Made It Myself, along with a mix of art materials such as fabric, yarn and buttons, families can explore themes of the holiday through art-making. This program is presented in partnership with Reboot.
Macy’s Sunday Story Time: Passover @ DiMenna Children’s History Museum
Ten-year-old Jacob cannot believe his ears when a Yankee soldier asks for his piece of matzoh. Even worse, his family invited the Jewish Yankee to Seder! While Jacob is bitter about the South losing the Civil War, the corporal is still able to have an open discussion with his family about freedom and slavery – apt themes for Passover.
ALL WEEKEND
Whales: Giants Of The Deep @ American Museum Of Natural History
Through a variety of interactive exhibits, visitors will experience a re-created dive to the depths of the sea with a sperm whale on the hunt for a giant squid, crawl through a life-size replica of the heart of the blue whale – the largest living animal on the planet – listen to whale croons, and meet people whose lives have been inextricably linked with whales – from legendary whale riders to scientists and former whaling families.
A Closer Look For Kids @ MoMA
Engage in lively discussions and activities while looking closely at works of art in MoMA’s galleries. Share your ideas and participate in drawing, movement, or writing activities as you explore three to five works of art in the museum galleries. Kids and adults participate together.
Family Art Project: Up Pops Spring @ Wave Hill
Look around and see the very early signs of spring. Guest artist Moses Ros invites you to use the everyday cardboard container as a springboard for handmade stamps in fantastic, nature-inspired, pop-up collages and mobiles that celebrate the budding season.
