Stories on the Farm
Amber Waves Farm and the Amagansett Library are joining up for story time at the farm on Saturdays at 10 a.m. this month.
Art as a Statement
On display at Guild Hall is an exhibition of artwork by children who attend programs at the Bridgehampton Child Care and Recreational Center. Led by Erica Cirino, a science writer and artist, the students got creative in response to the global plastics crisis. The show will continue through July 26.
Also at Guild Hall is a family-friendly art workshop on Saturday in which children can make captain's logbooks in partnership with educators from the East Hampton Town Marine Museum. The cost is $50 for a family of four ($35 for member families).
The stories and crafts series in partnership with the East Hampton Library continues Monday at 3:30 p.m. for children ages 3 and up with a caregiver. The event is free, though donations are suggested. Sign-up for all Guild Hall programs is at guildhall.org.
In Person With Project Most
Children ages 3 and 4 who love trucks, dinosaurs, and hands-on art will no doubt enjoy a Project Most workshop with a science and art theme on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. At noon that day, children entering kindergarten through third grade can make mobiles using mixed-media materials, and those entering the fourth through sixth grades can take an introductory ukulele class. Sign-up fees vary for members and nonmembers.
Looking ahead to July 17, Project Most will host the Popsicles, a musical group, for a family-friendly outdoor concert at 11 a.m. Tickets are $5, free for children 2 and under. Advance registration for all programs is at projectmost.org.
Classic Puppet Show
The Goat on a Boat Puppet Theater will perform a Punch and Judy show next Thursday at 4 p.m. at the Southampton Arts Center. Promising "wacky fun," the 30-minute show is best for children ages 3 to 8. Admission is free, though advance sign-up is requested on the arts center's website.
Into the Wild
On Sunday at 9 a.m., the South Fork Natural History Museum and Nature Center invites children ages 8 and up, teens, and adults to learn about piping plovers, terns, and other shorebirds. On Monday, Jungle Bob will visit the museum at 6:30 p.m. for an all-ages session on turtles and tortoises.
The museum will lead a sunset paddle tour of Conscience Point Preserve on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. for adults and children 8 and up. Participants can use their own kayaks or paddleboards or rent them for an additional fee. The museum recommends wearing appropriate clothes for paddling and taking along a towel, a dry bag and a set of dry clothes, water, and a camera.
