Big Kids at the Goat
    Older children who think they’ve grown out of the Saturday shows at the Goat on a Boat Puppet Theatre may want to return this week, when Brad Shur, the puppeteer-in-residence at the Puppet Showplace Theater in Boston, brings his show, “Magic Soup,” to Sag Harbor.
    Based on a collection of traditional Yiddish stories, “Magic Soup” follows a young man whose search for a family recipe brings folk tales to life. Showtimes are at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Tickets cost $10, $9 for members and grandparents, and $5 for children under 3.

The Circus Is Coming!
    The Arestov Family Acrobats, Wilson’s Wonderdogs, the gravity-defying Amazing Sladek, and a miniature horse called Tom Thumb will visit Pierson High School in Sag Harbor on March 3 with the Yankee Doodle Circus.
    Performances, at 12:45, 3:15, and 5:30 p.m., will raise money for the Teachers Association of Sag Harbor’s scholarship fund. Tickets will cost $33 at the door for adults and $15 for children under 15, but those who buy them by Tuesday can save $5 on the price of an adult ticket, plus get free admission for two children.
    Advance tickets can be purchased online at

Birds in Winter
    Lindsey Rohrbach, a nature educator at the South Fork Natural History Museum, will speak on Sunday about how birds survive the winter, why they sing less when it’s cold outside, and why they’ll sing more when the days get longer.
    The program will begin at 10 a.m. and will include time inside and outside the museum, when children will be able to feed birds right from their hands.
    Advance registration has been requested. The museum is in Bridgehampton, on the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike.

Clay Station
    A four-week pottery workshop at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill will give kids 7 and older the chance to create their own ceramic pieces using coil, slab, and sculpture techniques as well as the potter’s wheel.
    Wendy Gottlieb will teach the class, which will run for four Saturdays starting on March 2. It costs $120, $90 for Parrish members. Space is limited and advance registration is required.
