February might be the shortest month of the year, but it doesn't lack for family entertainment—at least in NYC.

This month often brings more school snow days, and always the weeklong mid-winter break for school kids. It ushers in film festivals just for kids, Valentine's Day fun, the Lunar New Year, new art exhibits and family theater.

Not all these great activities will blow your sensible new year budget either. We've rounded up the best FREE events happening in February for all ages of kids. 

Read on for nearly 40 FREE activities for NYC kids this coming month, and consult our NYC Event Calendar for a slew of alternative options. Find more seasonal to-dos in our NYC Winter Guide for Families.
