Scarecrows in Montauk

Camp SoulGrow will have a scarecrow-making session for kids 7 and older on Saturday from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at its studio on Carl Fisher Plaza in downtown Montauk. Sign-up is online at or by calling 631-668-8800. 


Apples and STEM

On Saturday morning, the Children’s Museum of the East End will pay a visit to the Milk Pail’s U-Pick Farm in Bridgehampton for apple picking, cider, doughnuts, and an autumn-themed scavenger hunt. Participants will meet at 10 a.m. at the farm, which is on Horsemill Lane. The cost is $13, $10 for members, and includes five apples and a pumpkin for each child. 

Young “innovators,” ages 6 to 8, may want to sign up for iCamp, an after-school STEM program that will meet on eight Thursdays from 3:30 to 5 p.m. starting next week at the Children’s Museum. Campers will explore coding, robotics, drones, virtual reality, and 3-D printing. The cost is $250.


Workshops and Crafts 

High school students looking for some extra help as they prepare to take the ACTs and SATs can find it at the East Hampton Library on Saturday, when Hamptons Strategies for Success leads a workshop from 9:30 to 11 a.m. 

Also at the library this week there will be opportunities to make marbled paper, earn community service credits, do Halloween crafts, and take in a Harry Potter movie.

The marbling workshop, on Tuesday at 4 p.m., is for sixth through eighth graders. That day at 4:30, high school students with a passion for Halloween can earn community service credit by helping plan a haunted library event on Oct. 27. 

Halloween story time and crafts for littler ones, those 4 to 6, will happen on Wednesday at 4 p.m. Next Thursday at 4 p.m. the library will show “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” to families. Though it’s rated PG, some elements of the movie may be scary for younger children. 

Kids 7 to 10 can paint portraits of pets sheltered at the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons Adoption Center on Friday, Oct. 19, at 3:30 p.m. And who knows, their portraits just might help an orphaned animal find a new family.
