The Tidbit Activity Series will continue this fall with new free educational programs for elementary-aged children.
Tidbit will take place on the following Saturdays at the museum at 10 AM, each with a different theme:
September 17- Flags: Learn about the meaning behind flags and make your own personal flag.
October 8- Archaeology: Have fun while learning about archaeology from a real archaeologist, Jenny Aiello.
November 19- Veterans Day Activities: While Americans usually wear poppies for Memorial Day, they have long been a symbol of remembrance for WWI. We'll make tissue paper poppies and learn about the history of Veteran's Day.
December 17- German Paper Cutting: Scherenschnitte is a traditional German paper craft that was often used to make holiday decorations.
Tidbit will be inside for the September, November, and December programs. Weather permitting, October’s Tidbit will be on the museum’s porch. Advanced registration is encouraged because space is limited to 40 children for each activity.
Tidbit has been an active program at the museum since the early 2000s. At over a decade old, thousands of students have explored local history and culture through this series.
