Things To Do in NYC This Weekend & Beyond: KAWS Opens, Pop-Up Ice Performance, Nature Explorations

The last week in the-longest-February-ever brings some serious fun. Celebrate Purim with the Jewish Museum. You can also catch a gorgeous city skate pop-up concert in Midtown and check out the new Kaws exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. Need more art? Artechouse's new installation, Geometric Properties, opens Monday, March 1.

Connect with the great outdoors by learning how to track animals, build a perfect fire, or simply look for early signs of spring in Inwood Hill Park. 

Poppins@Home is a perfect place to find online fun for kids. Top picks this week include a Harry Potter-inspired Wonderful World of Wizards series. We've also got music classes from Alina Celeste and a preschool class teaching science through the alphabet.

As we head into spring, the Mommy Poppins Event Calendar should start blossoming with safe, fun outdoor activities—like Easter egg hunts! So check often to see what lies ahead.

Editor's note: While we are trying to promote safer activities that occur outdoors or with social distancing guidelines in place, please keep your family and others safe by always wearing a mask and maintaining an appropriate distance. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our Event Calendar to find something else to do. Keep in mind, reservations are required for many of these events, so plan your outings in advance, and be sure to click through to our listing for all the details, including address, time, and pricing.
