Local Education Notes

“Three Billy Goats”

In the final puppet show of the Goat on a Boat summer series at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor, the Puppet Art Theater Company of California will present “Three Billy Goats Gruff” on Saturday. Show time is 11 a.m., and tickets start at $15. 

 

Sea People, Snap Circuits

Inspired by days at the ocean, maybe sand castles, or all those whale sightings reported off the beach lately, kids 4 and older will create their own imaginary sea people in an art program tomorrow at 2 p.m. at the East Hampton Library. Also tomorrow, sixth through eighth graders will use string as their medium in an art session beginning at 3:30 p.m.

With an iffy forecast for Saturday, the library’s afternoon movie, “The Muppets,” at 1:30 might be the perfect thing to do. 

On Sunday, high school students will get to use recycled materials to make wind chimes during a program from 3 to 5 p.m. 

A Snap Circuits electronics workshop for kids ages 7 and older will ease them into that thinking time of year on Tuesday at 4 p.m. — either a fun after-school activity or one to turn the brain power back on before the school bell rings, depending on where you go.

The young-adult librarian will face off against high school students in a test of pop culture trivia using the Kahoot! app next Thursday at 5 p.m. Participants should take their smartphones. There’s a “secret prize” promised for the winner. 

 

Rocks and Such

A session on sedimentary rocks for ages 4 and up at the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton will finish with a tasty rock-like creation tomorrow at noon. On Tuesday, kids in sixth grade and up can fashion their own Shrinky Dink creations from 3:30 to 5 p.m.
