Olivier is eaten, the champagne is over, and I would like to go to bed for a couple of days, but the children are still there - they need to be entertained. In addition, winter holidays are the only time of the year when children’s leave coincides with those of an adult. And that means you can have fun together. We have selected the cutest events for children that take place in Moscow during the New Year holidays.

Christmas Factory in Skazka Park

This year, the Skazk family park has conceived an impressive New Year's program "Christmas Factory", which will run from December 12 until the end of the New Year holidays. Every day there will be a variety of winter fun - theatrical performances and circus performances, ice shows and master classes, an outdoor skating rink and the Troll Cave, reindeer and husky sledding. In addition, it is the Skazk park that will become one of the residences of Father Frost from Veliky Ustyug - the main wizard of the country will be accommodated in the House of Father Frost in the ethno-village "Husky-Land".

Also in Skazke there will be an open skating rink with round dances around the tree, relay races, contests and other winter fun. In the Clownarium, a New Year's Miracle will take place every day - children there will be able to become a part of a circus performance, rage, have fun, throw pillows, walk on stilts and even hang on a Christmas tree. And those who want real adventure can go to the magical "Castle of the Snow Queen". The north wind hid all the New Year's attributes in the hidden corners of the castle, so only a friendly team can solve the New Year's quest and melt the Queen's icy heart.

Even dinosaurs did not stand aside, although what, it would seem, is the connection between them and the New Year. This winter, exciting day and evening excursions for young paleontologists start in Dinopark - fun walks with a teacher-animator, with whom children will travel back to the Jurassic period and learn the main secrets of dinosaurs.

This is a French full-length cartoon by the author of Ernest and Celestine (executed in the same delicate watercolor technique) about the incredible events that shook a quiet village. First, the rabbit and the pig receive a task from the stork - to send the child to the correct address. Then suddenly the fox becomes a brood hen for three chickens. And with the onset of Christmas in the village, a complete merry madness begins to happen.

And at the same time talk about how they celebrated the New Year after the revolution, what they gave to children, how they danced, had fun and what they played and what they treated the guests with.

The New Year's exhibition at the Museum "Ticket to the USSR" will show filmstrips on an old filmoscope and tell about Soviet holiday traditions.
