June Activities

For June 4 and 5 we're doing more kite making and flying and trying out of new designs. We're also painting petroglyphs to use for storytelling.

June 11 and 12 there's "Make Your Own Museum" where kids can come and fabricate their own displays. Will it be an art museum, a natural history museum, or a rock collection? There are cabinets to fill and signs to paint.

June 18 and 19, Father's Day weekend, we'll be making hand-made cards for Dad. We'll also have Science Station: Weather, which will include science experiments and cloud searches.

June 25 and 26, Carpentry Corner will feature constructing model boats that you can take to the river or float in our tester tub of water. On Sunday, June 26, printmaker Rachel Singel will teach introductory book binding to both children and adults. Kids can make their own book covers and sew their own bindings.

In addition to these special activities, we have carpentry, beading and nature activities every weekend, as well as keelboat tours and challenges. Hours are 10-4 on Saturdays and 12-4 on Sundays. Activities take place in a rustic barn setting (open air) and outside under tents. Come for a visit and explore art, history, and science! Cost is three dollars per person and includes all materials.
