Children’s Activities

There will be special thrills for younger visitors at Living History Day at a children’s area, where they will receive a free passport to the 1930s that provides access to games popular in the 1930s such as croquet, pick up sticks and jacks. Children will make old-fashioned arts and crafts such as paintings of the lodge and pine-cone bird feeders to take home as souvenirs. Children can also pose for photographs in 1930s costumes or compete in the watermelon-spitting contest.

Activities are described below.
