Weekday Picks for LI Kids: Chicka Chicka! September 5 - 9

Things to Do With Kids on Long Island This Week

September tends to conjure images of apple picking and pumpkin-spiced everything. But hold on. Those days are not here yet (though they are right around the corner!). With the unofficial end of summer behind us and the start of school upon us, we shift our attention to weekday events that are filled with both education and fun.

Monday, September 5
The Arcade Age - Garden City
GAME OVER. This is the last day to explore this retro-arcade exhibit, and most importantly, grab a joystick and actually play the games of yesteryear.
See all Monday events.

Tuesday, September 6
Toddler Time - Huntington
This hour-long session is jam-packed with music, crafts, and books. You'll quickly discover why the Book Revue is one of the best local bookstores in the country.
