Make History at the Museum is moving to the Lapham-Patterson House this month.
On Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon, the museum will be having a morning of exploration, creativity and fun in the Lapham-Patterson House’s backyard.
The new monthly family programs engage creativity and curiosity while exploring the community’s past. Inspired by the summer camp programs, Make History at the Museum activities are hands-on and history based. For April, the museum will be exploring the wonders of spring found in the garden.
Families will construct portable flower presses for spring outdoor adventures, create a paper garden using newfound knowledge of flowers’ symbols and meanings, learn how to plants eat, drink and breathe; and sprout a bean plant from a seed in a mini-greenhouse.
The Lapham-Patterson House will open for tours at 1 p.m. on the program day to accommodate the morning’s program. For more information or to RSVP call (229) 226-7664. Walk-ins are welcome.
