Many activities will take place at the museum not only Saturday afternoon, but also Saturday evening, from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.

From noon until 4 p.m, wreath-making activities will take place, along with decorating graham cracker “gingerbread” houses. The wreaths will cost $20 and the “gingerbread” houses will cost $5 each. For $2, you can create Christmas ornaments.

While getting into the holiday spirit, take time to relax and join Gretchen Gregory from the Northern Gardens and Landscapes, who will be serving all-natural teas during the afternoon. Children can look for fairy houses hidden throughout the museum. A finder’s prize will be given to each child who finds these delightful miniature homes. These houses will be put up for silent auction in the evening.
