If the holiday bustle at home has made them cranky, bring the kids down to PlayhouseSquare’s Idea Center (1375 Euclid Ave.) from 3-5 p.m. this afternoon for the annual Tinsel Town party. Among the activities at the interactive holiday event: games, crafts, face-painting, storytelling with Santa and holiday treats. For families who want to make an afternoon of it, the party immediately follows the Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s 1 p.m. performance of The Nutcracker in the next-door Allen Theatre. Tickets are $8-$12 for Tinsel Town; Nutcracker tickets are $10-$75. Call 216.241.6000 or visit the web site for tickets. — Anastasia Pantsios
