A lot of libraries have story times that are good for all ages. It is kind of hard to control the littler ones sometimes, but my son does really well if he is well-rested and well-fed.
Also, with it being fall time, check out any pumpkin patches or farms in your area. They usually have activities that are fun for various ages like slides, straw or corn mazes, crafts, etc.
You can make your own "Play-Doh" from cornstarch. Look up recipes online. It is basically corn starch and water I think. If you don't use food coloring, you can let the little ones go crazy with it and get messy and have fun. It is also scientific because it is hard when touched firmly and gel-like when touched softly.
READ, READ, READ...Books that are colorful and especially those that rhyme. My DS LOVES books that rhyme or have patterns of words like Goodnight Moon, Dr. Seuss's ABC, Brown Bear, etc.
Sing and dance and bang on pots!!!
