WINTER WARMER at Rockefeller Plaza (Feb. 9, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.). Whatever the temperature is, youthful energy and high spirits should generate plenty of warmth at this free event on the plaza’s concourse level. Featuring the year’s first edition of Art Sundae, an initiative from the Art Production Fund and the gallery Fort Gansevoort, the program will invite children to create their own work with the sculptor, painter and performer Vanessa German. Using materials like cardboard cones, ribbon, twine, fabric, beads and buttons, little artists will build “power figures” — sculptures representing hope and purpose — for a future installation at the concourse’s ticket booth. Other attractions include reggae from the Rock and Roll Playhouse, a gardening workshop, performances by Puppetsburg (with Frida Kahlo and Lizzo among the characters) and a science show about rainbows.
