Winter Storm Juno was a bust and this Sunday’s Super Bowl may not end up being so super, but there is always fun to be had for families around the Big Apple, according to our friends at New York Family magazine who put together today’s planner. Click the event title for full details.
All ages are invited to participate in Bryant Park’s first Winter Carnival, an eclectic mix of outdoor seasonal activities including ice golf, juggling workshops, a make-your-own paper snowflake craft, curling lessons, a hockey shootout and more. (Free, noon to 10 p.m., Friday-Saturday)
The Spellbound Theatre will perform “Wink” at the Old Stone House this weekend. Combining puppetry, animation, and live acting into one performance, the show tells the story of a young girl and her bear and explores imagination, dreams, and beauty. ($12 kids, $16 adults, shows at 10 and 11:30 a.m. Saturday-Sunday)
Inspired by the African art and sculpture in Helena Rubenstein’s collection, kids can express themselves by designing a custom headdress,mask, or a sculpted pendant inspired by Rubenstein’s jewelry. There will also be performances by Heidi Swedberg and the Sukey Jump Band, gallery scavenger hunts, and an opportunity have your face transformed into a work of art by the Agostino Arts face painters. (Free with museum admission, noon to 4 p.m., Sunday)
