The focus on Monday was meet and greet. The children got to meet and feed the animals that hang out at the museum. This was followed by them all getting pony rides.Then the children all got to make a craft which was creating butterflies out of coffee filters.
Tuesday’s focus was to visit the McNarry house and Olha School. Both of these buildings are located near the main museum.In both settings the children got to see all of the artifacts. They also got to experience what school would be like in a one room school.All of the children learned how to wash clothes the old fashioned way and to even practice their washing and scrubbing skills. When that was done they all got a wagon ride back to the museum. When they got back the
children all did another craft which was paper weaving.
