Whats On For Kids in NYC This Weekend: January 9 & 10

Well, we are racing through the start of January already. With lots to keep the little ones having fun this weekend, we are highlighting our picks below…

Watson Adventures’ Wizard School Virtual Scavenger Hunt
January 9, 5pm – 6:30pm
Online, hosted by Watson Adventures
$19 per person
Ages 10+

Grab your magic wands for a wizarding adventure that takes you to museums across America in search of art that echoes characters, places, and magical objects in the famed Harry Potter books and movies, all without leaving your home. You’ll track down bizarre creatures, slithering serpents, men who might remind you of Voldemort and Nearly Headless Nick, trophies that seem straight out of the Triwizard Tournament, and eerie figures as scary as any Death Eater or Dementor. Along the way, you’ll virtually visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Gallery of Art, and more! This hunt is not an addition to or variation on Harry’s adventures, but instead, references to the books will provide a surprising bridge to many strange and wonderful works of art.

Online, hosted by Whitney Museum of American Art

You are invited to Open Studio From Home, free weekly online art classes with Whitney Educators! Participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art materials.

G. Peter Jemison started sketching on paper bags while he was a curator at the American Indian Community House. He noticed how bags—such as purses, briefcases, and plastic bags—are items that everyone uses. Jemison covers his bags with stories and messages that are important to him.

Family Art Project: In Step with Cycles and Seasons
January 9, 10am – 11am
Online, hosted by Wave Hill

The moon waxes and wanes, the seasons change and plant buds burst and rest. And so do you! Find inspiration from the field of phenology, the study of cycles and seasons, to get intentional about how you want to spend your year. Create goals for yourself that mimic nature’s natural processes. To chart your own growth, look to the moon, seedlings that bloom and seasonal cycles. Learn the art of paper sculpture just with assorted paper scraps and scissors.
