Children and Family
FAMILY FUN & GAMES DAY
What makes a home? Find out with fun activities exploring what home means for people, animals, and more!
Saturday, May 11, 2013
11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Join us for a day of fun & games for the whole family! Children of all ages are invited to explore and learn about homes of all kinds, including family homes, like the Stickley family's Log House at Craftsman Farms, the homes of many kinds of animals, and the natural world, which is "home" to us all. While focused on family fun, this program will also encourage children to consider concepts that Stickley held dear, like the value of nature and the meaning of home.
Animal Experiences, an entertaining and educational live-animal program will be a special feature of this event, with families invited to reserve a spot for this 30-minute program. The live-animal program is included with admission but not guaranteed. Reservations are strongly recommended as space is limited. Due to popular demand, we've added a third show at 2:00p.m.

The North Cottage at Craftsman Farms will be the site of a bilingual story time reading, in both English and Spanish, of the classic children's book, "The Best Nest" by P.D. Eastman. The program will also include scavenger hunts both inside the Stickley Museum and outdoors around the grounds, craft activities, Silly Simon Says, SnoCones from SnoBall Factory, and yummy snacks from Apple Spice Junction available for sale in the Museum Shop.
Family Fun & Games Day is Saturday, May 11 from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.

We offer a variety of year round programs for children and families, including special children's tours of the Stickley Museum, seasonal Family Days and Holiday Tours, a Craftsman Farms tradition.
Our programs are designed to engage children in multi-sensory, hands-on learning and timeless fun. Like Stickley, our programs for children and families place a high priority on valuing nature, family life, and working with your hands. Families are invited to get involved: take a children's tour with a flashlight and magnifying glass, practice embroidery and woodworking at the Holiday Open House, paint a pumpkin or dance around the maypole at a Family Day, get your hands dirty, play in the grass, learn about history, and more importantly, make history together.
