February School Break: 35 Fun Things to Do with NYC Kids

Kids can stop praying for more snow days. Midwinter recess kicks off for New York City public schools over Presidents Day weekend, offering nine days of uninterrupted holiday playtime. To help you make the most of the February vacation, we've rounded up more than 35 things to do with kids across all five boroughs, right through Sunday, February 26.

Lucky for us, NYC museums, ice rinks, parks, and other fun zones host a slew of special activities and promotions during the school break. Some of our picks take place on specific dates, others run the entire time, and all are great ways to celebrate the freezin' season.

The extra days off also make it a great time to book a couple of nights away as a family with these more budget-minded getaways, or to pile onto the train or into the car for a day trip to a top kid spot.

Remember you can always search our Event Calendar for more February break week happenings. (Tip: Search for a specific day or with the word "break.")

It might feel as if Christmas break just ended, but winter break is already upon us! For most New Jersey public schools, that means a long Presidents Day weekend, with schools closed on Friday, February 17 and Monday, February 20. Some districts observe the holiday on Monday only, while many schools take the whole week off, not returning until the following Monday, February 27.

Whatever combination of days your kids have, chances are they are ready for some fun, whether they want to stay warm indoors or embrace the cold in a wintry activity like skiing, ice skating, or snow tubing. We've rounded up the best winter break activities for kids of all ages. To plan a family adventure, check out our best bets for winter day trips or an indoor water park for a summer feel!
