|What Makes You Smile - HANDS-ON FUN!
Life can be full of ups and downs and trying something new, meeting new people and getting active are just some of the simple steps you can take to help you improve your mental well being. That's where we come in!
Let's Make Stress Balls!
Mexican Yarn Art!
We first tried our hand at Mexican Yarn Art back in 2016, and we're bringing it back by popular demand! Known for bright colours and bold designs, you'll start with a blank floor tile and create from there! We'll have a few patterns for you to choose from, or you can just go wild with your own creativity!
Picnic with a Scarecrow!
While you're at the Museum, make sure you try your hand at rope making. This is definitely one of the most fun things you will do. A bit of a throwback to our heritage and agriculture days - a little bit of braiding and a little bit like spinning. Watching the ol' guys make rope is a real treat, and you get to take home one you make yourself!
BOARD GAMES & PUZZLES
Bring the family or challenge your neighbours to a rip-snorting board game! The Museum will also have some games that will create a zen gaming experience for those wanting a little peace.
You can also relax your brain at the Museum in our Old-Tyme Candy Store where we'll have all sorts of puzzles laid out for you. Sit for a spell and join in on building a railroad puzzle while munching on some homemade fudge or lemon drops!
There's more "Make It Take It" at Artists at Work in the Train Station
For a real "hands-on activity", try your hand at playing the drums, a saxophone, fiddle, or piano at our Instrument Play Day at Top Note Music School, halfway between the Train Station and the Library.
