The Smith-McDowell House Museum is continuing its series of children’s education programs on Saturday, Dec. 17 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the museum (283 Victoria Rd).
The “Crafty Historian,” Museum Education Coordinator Lisa Whitfield, will be celebrating “A Carolina Christmas” with a very special children’s tour of the beautifully decorated Smith-McDowell House Museum. This will be a hands-on tour featuring historic toys and games. Participants will also make a toy and a Victorian-style Christmas ornament.
Children above the age of nine may come to the event without a parent, but younger children will need adult supervision.
Admission is $5 each to cover craft expenses and reservations are suggested, so call by Dec. 15 at 838-253-9231 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
