Weekday Picks for Westchester Kids: Valentine’s Day and STEAM Fun

Things to Do

February fun continues with assorted weekday fun, including multiple opportunities to celebrate seasonal holidays and celebrations.

In addition to our roundup of fun Valentine’s Day activities, we’ve added Full STEAM Ahead to our top picks for this week, which includes oobleck creation, engineering and shaving-cream art on the agenda. We’re also supplementing our recommendations for ways to celebrate Black History Month with a performance that explores African American influence on American dance at Féraba African Rhythm Tap Company: The Roots of Tap. Another highlight is Embroidery, an opportunity to introduce the art of needlecraft to younger stitchers.
