New York Family Weekend Planner: February 24-26

Written by New York Family on . Posted in Family, Lifestyle.

While it seems that the city decided to usher in spring a little early this week, we’re not entirely sold just yet. So here’s a list of fun indoor activities to whip your weekend into shape, from a really cool day at the Rubin Museum to an Oscar kick-off (with the Muppets, of course) in Queens.

The recipe for a great weekend: birthday bashes and safari animals. Head to the final days of The Intrepid’s Kids Week.

Catch Cirque Le Jazz at the Theater for the New City for some Big Band anthems, Broadway-style dancing and aerial acrobatics.

Classic scenes from The Nutcracker plus brand new ballets will be shown at Ballet Academy East’s Studio Showing.
Girls ages 8 and up can meet award-winning author Mary Casanova at The American Girl Place. Bring a book to have signed!

Screen a few unique family films at the Film Society of Lincoln Center this weekend. Those with imaginary friends of their own will love the tale of Twigson and also find out what happens when The Great Bear kidnaps Jonathan’s little sister.

It’s the New Year all over again at the Rubin Museum’s Himalayan New Year celebration for families. Get ready for butter sculptures and tea, plus a collaborative mandala project.

Bring your royal wee ones to the Medieval Arts Children’s Workshop at St. John The Divine. 4’s and up will learn how to carve a block of limestone or master the art of weaving.

Recess always reigns, even on weekends. Check out Recess Monkey, a quirky pop rock trio, at Symphony Space.

Join the JCC for their Special Free Saturday spotlighting Street Arts. Events include a graffiti workshop, art from Keith Haring and a panel discussion.

No MoonSoup party is complete without music, dancing, instruments and stories.
