Hi Kate,

You can also try some fun things indoors:

2) virtual reality games and experiences at Portāls VR Arcade: https://portalsvr.lv/;
3) Līvu waterpark: https://www.akvaparks.lv/en/

Hope this helps :)

For art activities you can check the National Arts museum, it's very popular and has activities for children too. www.lnmm.lv/en/lnma/visit

There is a skating rink in Kronvalda park near Congress hall. Also in Lido leisure centre on Krasta 76.
In Old town, Dome square there is the main Christmas tree and market.
Thoughout the city there are Christmas trees created by artists - www.eglufestivals.lv
Riga Zoo is having winter nights (open late in the evening). If there is snow, then in the nearby Mežaparks open air concert venue there will be possibility to do tube sliding. Organiser - Žagarkalns skiing park - you can ask them on Facebook (their main skiing slopes are located in Cēsis, 60km from Riga).
Distance skiing and natural ice skating rink will be available in Uzvaras parks.
In Jurmala (sea resort close to Riga) there are lights decorations and installations in Dzintari forest park.
