Saturday in the City: Dec 26 & 27

Are you currently experiencing a Holiday Hangover? Wish all the fun didn’t have to end?

There’s many more ways to celebrate this weekend! Check out what’s happening around the city.


Queens County Farm Holiday Open House 

From noon to 4pm, enjoy tours of the decorated farmhouse at the Queens County Farm. Kids will enjoy craft activities and all visitors are invited to warm up with a cup of freshly mulled cider! This event is FREE and fun, a great way to continue the festivities!

Kwanzaa Festival and activities

Head to the Children’s Museum of Manhattan to celebrate Kwanzaa while learning about the roots and rhythm of the culture. Beginning at 10 am there are many different craft classes for kids of all ages. Children 6 and older can enjoy making Sankofa-inspired jewelry, while littler ones five and under can create Kwanzaa printmaking placemats. Free with payment of admission. 


Frozen in 3D

The NYSCI is showing this kid favorite a few different times throughout the winter vacation week! A fun escape into the snowy mountains during this unseasonable warm holiday season!


ReMake the Holidays

Also at NYSCI, families bend, twist, light, sculpt and animate a new version of the holiday season with workshops, demos, artist installations and more. ReMake the Holidays is a response to increased consumption and waste during the holiday season and an attempt to give people inspiration and options to do things differently, while having fun. Activities are free with NYSCI admission, unless otherwise noted. Activities take place between noon and 4 pm.

Rock & Roll Playhouse for Kids!

One great way to end the weekend, or to kick of winter vacation break is to head to Brooklyn Bowl for this rockin’ time! The Rock and Roll for Kids series is designed to keep children moving, playing and singing while simultaneously teaching developmental milestones and listening to classic tunes.  Tickets are $10. Doors open at 11; show from 11:15-12:15.


However you decide to create your celebrations or rock around your tree, our MadMamaNYC family wished you a very happy and peaceful holiday season!
