Even though it's mighty cold outside, you needn't hibernate. That's why the weekly family crafts program at the Charles A. Dana Discovery Center in Central Park is such a pleasant recreational activity. Moms and dads who are tired of their kids being glued to one screen after another will love the community building and mental engagement provided by the weekly events that teach everything from still-life drawing and painting to beading and puppet making. Children of all ages are welcomed to attend as long as they do so with at least one family member.

Head to the Dana Discovery Center after school gets out and kick off your weekend with a different craft each week. Upcoming events on February 18 and March 18 are presented with the help of representatives from the Museum of African Art. All ages and skill levels are welcome, and no advance registration is needed. For more information, call (212) 860-1370.
