If you live in one of the Long Island school districts who started classes before Labor Day, are your kids glad to be back in school with their friends or are they already over it? My kids don’t go back until Tuesday, and although they look longingly at their backpacks all packed up with new school supplies and are excited to see their friends and meet their new teachers, after the second day of school, they will definitely be asking how many days are left before the first vacation.
Even though school has begun, we don’t have to put the summer weekends and outdoor activities behind us – remember, it technically still is summer for another few weeks. If you’re still looking for plans, here are the top picks for family activities this weekend on Long Island.
- Saturday is Kids Day at the annual Hampton Classic (Bridgehampton)
- All weekend long, attend the Seaford Fall Festival at the LIRR Station (Seaford)
- Free crafts for kids continues Saturday from 11am to 3pm at Lakeshore Learning Store (New Hyde Park).
- If you’re out east for the weekend, see kids musician Suzi Shelton perform at Goat on a Boat Puppet Theater (Sag Harbor).
