Kids Culture 12.26.13

Get Out of the House

       Kids who need to get out of the house after the holiday will find plenty to do at local libraries over the next few days.

       At the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton, kids in seventh grade and above can make New Year’s wish fortune cookies today and tomorrow during library hours, or stop by at 2 p.m. tomorrow to create silhouette wall art. Reservations are required for the latter.

       New Year’s Eve will come early at the John Jermain Memorial Library in Sag Harbor, where kids of all ages are invited for games, dancing, treats, and a countdown (to noon, that is) on Saturday at 11:30 a.m. Registration is not required.

       Families can make a pinecone birdfeeder following a story time at the Amagansett Library on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. Advance sign-up is required.

       Salt dough snow families are on the agenda at the East Hampton Library on Monday from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. during a program for kids 4 and up. Next Thursday, Joyce Raimondo will lead the same age group as they turn the letters of the alphabet into word paintings.


Gustafer at the Goat

       Morgan Taylor will bring his Gustafer Yellowgold multimedia show for kids to the Goat on a Boat Puppet Theatre on Saturday at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

       The show is a mix of live music, animated illustrations, and storytelling, focusing on a little yellow “guy from the sun who landed in the Minnesota woods.”

       Tickets cost $12, $10 for members and grandparents, and $8 for siblings and children under 3. Goat on a Boat performs in the parish hall of the Sag Harbor Episcopal Church, Route 114 and East Union Street.
