Animation Alfresco

    “Madagascar 3” will be shown on a big outdoor screen at the Neighborhood House in East Hampton on Friday, Sept. 6. The screening is a fund-raiser for the East Hampton Neighborhood House Early Learning Program. Tickets cost $5 per person or $20 for a family of five. The movie will start at dark.

Make Your Own Fossil

    For many kids, Labor Day does not quite mean the end of summer, and at the East Hampton Library, there’s still a little more fun ahead. On Wednesday, kids 4 and up can make their own fossils from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. The same age group will use plaster gauze to make ice cream sculptures on Friday, Sept. 6, from 2 to 3 p.m. Advance registration has been requested for both programs.

Creatures Up Close

    Future herpetologists can see some of their favorite creatures up close when Erik’s Reptile Edventures visits the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton on Saturday for an end-of-summer celebration. There will be lizards, snakes, turtles, crocodilians, toads, salamanders, and even arachnids at the library that afternoon at 3. Reservations and early arrival have been recommended.

Seining Excursion

    Al Daniels will lead children and adults on a bay seining excursion in Noyac with the South Fork Natural History Museum on Sunday at 1 p.m. Participants will watch him cast his net and then take a look at the variety of near-shore marine creatures it catches. The museum has requested reservations.

    A program on atoms, molecules, and compounds for kids 7 to 9 that was originally scheduled for last week has been rescheduled for Saturday at 10 a.m. Kids will use simple toys to understand what the tiny building blocks of life look like and how “some of these important pieces, like water and carbon, are shared across the whole world in a cycle, and how they are part of all living things.” There is a $4 materials fee for the program. Reservations are required.
