Looking for things to do with the kids this weekend? From the Harlem Globetrotters to Disney performances, crafts and more, there are plenty of activities happening on Long Island. Here are my top five picks for family-friendly activities this weekend:

Harlem Globetrotters at Nassau Coliseum (1255 Hempstead Tpke., Uniondale). The Harlem Globetrotters give fans the chance to decide which rules will affect the game including "Hot Hand Jersey," "Make or Miss" and "Trick Shot Challenge" on Saturday, Feb. 15 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Prices start at $17.

Doo-Wop Wed Widing Hood at BroadHollow's BayWay Arts Center (265 E. Main St., East Islip). On Saturday at 2 p.m., check out a hilarious take on the classic fairy tale, set in the 1950s, in which three princes want to woo Red Riding Hood and a hula-hoop competition ensues. Price: $12, $10 (in advance).
