Event Duration: 2 Hours

Join us at the historic Mesa School (33985 Hwy 40) for pioneer activities and crafts for kids ages 5 and up with adult. Activities include a Mountain Man demonstration showing how these rugged men of the past survived in the wilderness, a spinning wheel demonstration showing how wool goes from sheep to sweaters, including a hands-on drop spindle spinning activity, and candle dipping.

Set in the historic Mesa Schoolhouse, kids learn about life as a pioneer through various activities such as candle dipping, pioneer games, panning for gold, making mountain man possible bags, leather crafts, soap making, and more. Kids learn about teacher and student life in a turn-of-the-century one-room schoolhouse.

The program is free and all supplies are provided by the museum. Reservations are not required. Families can simply show up and have fun. Parents are also welcome to participate in the activities.
