Monday’s focus was having the children meet and feed the animals that hang out at the museum. The children all got to go for a pony ride.Then the children took part in a good game of kick the can. The final big activity was making butter which they were able to try out after.
Tuesday’s focus was to visit the McNarry’s house that has lots of cool artifacts. Then the children learned and tried to wash clothes the old fashioned way. When that was done the children played with bubbles and made their own homemade fiddle.
Wednesday’s focus was hanging out at the Olha school. Here they experienced what a one school classroom was all about. This was followed by a potato and flower paint activity.
Thursday's morning was filled with the children carrying out a scavenger hunt. Once the hunt was done the children competed in a paper airplane making and flying contest.
Friday the children took part in some good old fashioned relays. Due to the rain they were hosted indoors. Then the children made homemade ice cream. They especially enjoyed the ice-cream because they worked up such an appetite from their relays.
It was a great week filled with lots of laughs and great experiences that help educate the younger people on what life was like long ago. PMRM had 17 children participate throughout the week.
