Afternoon Adventures: "Pioneers Day"

The pioneers didn't have passports to travel to new locations, but in a fun twist on present-meets-past, children will get their own passport booklets stamped as they "travel" around the back yard of the Kinder House to learn about pioneering skills such as making candles, churning butter, and weaving. The activity will also include making a wagon craft.

For children, ages 5-12, with an adult. $3 per child, or $2 with a History Center membership.
