Museum Expands Summer Tidbit Activity Series

The Museum at the Bighorns announced on May 5ththat all the slots for their Summer Tidbit Activity Series at 10am were filled. To allow more children ages 6-10 to attend the program, the museum will be holding each Tidbit activity twice.

“To facilitate social distancing and give each child more attention sessions were limited to 30 children. Tidbit has been only at 10am in the past,” said Jessica Knight, Collections Manager. “But when all the slots filled up in a week we felt the need to listen to the community need. We decided to add a second session at 1pm to give more children the chance to attend.”

Tidbit has been an active program at the museum since the early 2000s. At over a decade old more than 20,000 students have explored local history and culture through this series. Last year all museum programming was cancelled due to Covid-19. This summer’s Tidbit series will be the first children’s programming done by the museum since the initial outbreak.

“We are glad to get Tidbit up and running again,” said Mikayla Larrow, Executive Director. “We know people in the community missed these types of programs and we missed the kids. With Tidbit students get to have fun while learning about Sheridan’s history and culture.”

The Tidbit Activity Series will cover a wide variety of topics this summer. Programs will start in June and run through August 3rd.Tidbit will transition to Saturdays in the Fall.

The schedule this summer is:

June 8th- Butter
June 22nd- Weaving
July 6th- Rodeo
July 20th- Painting
August 3rd- Ice Cream

Pre-registration is highly encouraged because of the limited spots available and how quickly spots are already filling. Parents can easily sign their children up and learn more about the Tidbit Activity Series by visiting the museum’s website museumatthebighorns.org.
