There's still plenty fun to be had in Salem even though Halloween is over! Among the other local attractions, you should want to head over to the Peabody Essex Museum this Sunday for an afternoon of art exploration. Each weekend, the museum hosts drop-in activities of all kinds for the entire family. You can fold an origami penguin, make finger puppets, and even meet a live wolf. Or pick up one of the family-friendly "Gallery Discovery Kits" and search the museum for animals or explore life at sea. This Sunday, from 2-3 p.m., you can sign up for a special seasonal activity of creating gourd and pinecone centerpieces that will add some homemade flair to your holiday table this year. Also this Sunday during the regular drop-in hours from 1-3 p.m. is an activity inspired by the current exhibit all about hats -- decorate your own hatbox. There are endless ways to enjoy the museum -- together. Sun., Nov. 18, 1-3 p.m. Adults, $15; seniors, $13; students, $11; ages 16 and under, and Salem residents, free. Registration required by Nov. 15 for the gourd and pinecone activity. Peabody Essex Museum, East India Square, Salem. www.pem.org
