Celebrate all things mom, mommy, mama, and ma this weekend, including a Mother's Day festival at Harbes Farm and Vineyard, artsy dual-canvas paint creations at Pinot's Palette, and messages in a bottle just for mom at the Maritime Explorium. Maybe drop the kiddos off at the Center for Science Teaching & Learning for its junior zookeeper workshop and enjoy some YOU time, or catch a show together. Two of our favorite characters from prolific children's author Mo Willems, Elephant & Piggie, take to the stage in their typical enthusiastic and neurotic fashion!
If the weather holds, try one of these local hikes, or a new-to-you top Long Island playground. We recently rounded up our favorite playgrounds for the toddler crowd, too. There's also amusement park and petting zoo fun to be had. Rainy day? Try these 25 boredom busters and indoor play spots, or peruse our Indoor Family Fun Guide.
