Weekday Picks for Westchester Kids: Teen Take-Over, Toy Making

Things to Do

Happy new year! As we return from the holidays to our usual routines, so do the types of events on tap for Westchester families.

A couple highlights this week offer an added perk of altruistic benefit along with entertainment, such as Make Toys for Homeless Cats. Another animal-related activity is the presentation of the conscience-raising documentary SeasonsFor sheer fun, teens get a special opportunity to rule the roost at Teen Lock-In After-Hours Party.

Regardless, we understand the need to keep the kids occupied and have compiled our top picks below. If one of your new year’s resolutions is to plan ahead and identify more enriching opportunities for your kids, look no further than our January GoList and our Event Calendar!
