Kids Culture - 05.05.11

Art for Japan
    Tomorrow afternoon from 2 to 7 p.m., the students of the Ross School on Goodfriend Drive will hold an art sale. They plan to donate 100 percent of their proceeds to the Japanese Red Cross Society, to aid Japan in rebuilding the disaster-affected prefectures.

Peconic Family Fun
    Kids 5 to 10 can learn about water management, agricultural sustainability, recycling, and environmental stewardship during a Peconic Family Fun Day at the Children’s Museum of the East End in Bridgehampton on Saturday.
    The free event, which runs from 10 a.m. to noon, rain or shine, is co-sponsored by the Group for the East End, the Peconic Land Trust, and the South Fork Natural History Society, which has a museum across the street from CMEE.
    There will be games, a live touch tank, arts and crafts and seed-planting stations, and food. Nature walks will be offered at the South Fork Natural History Museum.
    Also at the SoFo museum, at 1 p.m. that day, Barbara Blaisdell will show kids how to use binoculars. Reservations are required for this program.

Audience Choice
    Improv 4 Kids, the educational and outreach arm of the improvisational comedy troupe Eight Is Never Enough, will entertain children at the Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor on Saturday at 3 p.m.
    Kids should put their thinking caps on now: The group will perform on-the-spot sketch and musical comedy scenes based on suggestions from the audience. Justin Bieber at the royal wedding? Sponge Bob meets the first lady? It’s your call.
    The show is geared toward children 4 and older. Tickets cost $15 for those under 14, $20 for adults. There will also be V.I.P tickets offered at $35 each. They come with choice seats and an after-party featuring sliders and chips from Bay Burger.
