I know shopping this time of year does not count as fun - but your kids can have fun while you do it at the Teddy Roosevelt Nature Sanctuary. Their website reads:

Sunday December 5 & 12 from 12pm-3pm: Drop & Shop!
Drop off the kids for fun nature activities, while you take care of holiday shopping! Sanctuary staff will lead your children in nature games, wildlife viewing, and holiday crafts while you take time for yourself during this busy season. Registration is required for children ages 5-12. $20 per child. Please call 516-922-3200 or email for registration.
