B.Y.O. Pumpkin

The Children’s Museum of the East End in Bridgehampton promises a “smashing good time” on Saturday at its first-ever pumpkin fling, in which gourds will go flying from a working catapult. Participants must supply their own pumpkins for the event, which is from 10 to 11 a.m. The fling, which is for children of all ages and their parents or guardians, is $12, free for museum members.

The story for CMEE’s Pizza and Pajama Night tomorrow at 5:30 is Steve Anthony’s “Please, Mr. Panda,” about civility and manners. Children of all ages can attend in pajamas for the interactive read-aloud, which is free for museum members.


Feeding Time

The South Fork Natural History Museum in Bridgehampton has invited children ages 3 to 5 to observe feeding time for its animal family on Sunday at 10 a.m. A similar session for ages 6 to 8 will be at 2 p.m. that day. Kids can also learn about the food web and other animal facts. 

How do you cook up a Thanksgiving turkey when you’re 4 years old? With cookies, crispy rice treats, chocolate, and candy corn, that’s how. Kids that age and up have been invited to make these sweet turkey treats on Wednesday from 4 to 5 p.m. at SoFo.

Advance sign-up is required for both programs.


For Teens

The East Hampton Library will host a trivia and coloring session for high school students from 3 to 5 p.m. tomorrow. Cookies will be served, and advance sign-up is required. The Teen Advisory Board will meet on Sunday from 4 to 5 p.m., and the Battle of the Books team will get together Tuesday afternoon from 3:30 to 4:30.

High school students who are interested in knitting can visit the library on Wednesday for the Knit Lit community service project from 3:30 to 5 p.m.

In Sag Harbor, the movie for teen movie night on Monday at the John Jermain Memorial Library is “The Sun Is Also a Star,” based on the romantic young-adult novel by Nicola Yoon. It starts at 4:45 p.m. Pizza will be served, and registration is required.

Also in Sag Harbor, Bay Street Theater and LTV are joining up for weekly on-camera acting training for teenagers. From 10 a.m. to noon, starting Saturday and running through Dec. 14 (with no class on Nov. 30), participants ages 13 to 18 will learn the difference between stage and screen acting, and all participants will get a reel of their classwork at the end of the session.
