Arts & Crafts on Winter’s Eve

Olivo WE 2013 (337)

On Winter’s Eve the entire family can show off their crafting skills at venues across the neighborhood.

Don’t miss all of the fun at Kids’ Central at the American Bible Society where parents can relax in comfy confines while kids enjoy crown coloring with The New Victory Theater, and crafts hosted by the West Side Y and the ABS Atrium.  Sesame Street will also be on hand with demonstrations of Sesame Street apps, giveaways, and walkaround Abby Cadabby. Big Apple Circus will be there too with giveaways and a face painter! On the second floor, visit the Museum of Biblical Art, for more artmaking.  You can find all of these fun activities under one roof at Broadway and 61st Street.

Over at Time Warner Center’s second floor there will be performers and face painters from the Big Apple Circus. Plus, you can celebrate the season of giving with DOROT by making holiday cards for seniors in the community.

At both Kids’ Central at the American Bible Society and on the second floor of the Time Warner Center, The Big Apple Circus is also offering the best seats available for $35 each ticket* and they will waive service fees. (*Limited availability. Offer good on select shows and seats. Offer good on tickets purchased at mobile box office units at Winter’s Eve event. Other conditions apply. Children under 3 are free when seated on the lap of a paid adult, one child per lap.)

At TD Bank on Broadway and 62nd Street children and their parents can get creative as they customize their very own Holiday Hat at the TD decorating station.

Finally, stop by the American Folk Art Museum (125 Columbus Avenue between 65th & 66th St.) where children ages 4-12 can create a little art of their own. Inspired by a selection of images from AFAM’s collection, participants will use a variety of winter-themed stencils, materials, and textures, adhering them to family keepsake boxes of their own design. An additional workshop, which is designed for younger folk art enthusiasts, participants will create their own snowflake designs in the art studio, using crayon resist watercolor techniques.
