There are many places on the island to give your kids an introduction to the mission of Martin Luther King Jr. this weekend, including crafts-centered events at the Whaling Museum and Education Center, the Long Island Children's Museum, the Children's Museum of the East End, and As You Wish Parties.
Animal lovers will also find plenty of activities to kindle their love for furry friends, from the Center for Science Teaching & Learning's Junior Zookeeper Workshop to animal mosaics, rubber ducks, and Father Goose. After all that learning, take in a lighthearted play about the ups and downs of friendship.
